So I mentioned in this post I was going to use some Bliss for the Buggy Barn quilt Crazy Little Thing Called Love. I've made a few blocks.
I made these 3 blocks last week. They went together easily and quickly. I was kind of dreading sewing all the pieces but if you chain sew them the blocks sew together quickly. I was also excited because I didn't have a ton of time and it was nice to get all 3 blocks done. I felt like I actually got somewhere. You know when you spend the day sewing little pieces and at the end of the day you don't feel like you got much accomplished. I get discouraged and fall out of love with those projects. So getting 3 cute blocks completely done in limited time I was thrilled. I couldn't wait to continue with the blocks.
I had a few hours this weekend. Things didn't go quite as smooth....
These blocks should have taken me about two hours tops. I put the freeze paper on the back of the fabric -- and CUT IT! Even stopping to think, these won't be reversed will they? No, cut away...and I did. And guess what - everything was reversed and they just don't go together reversed. I was so irritated with myself. So using pieces big enough (my first picks looked much better) I cut out and slowed down to make sure I was doing everything right the second time around. A few hours later I finally had these 6 blocks to show for my days worth of work!
Even with the set back, I'm loving this line and these blocks. I can't wait to get these finished. I just have the word LOVE to cut out - and than I can put it together. I'm hoping by next weekend I'll have it done and ready to quilt. I'm kind of wishing I had decided to make the bigger quilt. But I think this will make a sweet baby quilt. If only I knew someone having a girl sometime soon! If anyone is keeping a secret let me know, you'll want to get your name on this quilt!
