As badly as I hate to admit it, I'm not as good as I'd like to be when it comes to piecing blocks. I've done ok so far, simply because I draw it all out on graph paper to my own specifications. That has been good for me, allowing me to slip into quilting and gain a little confidence.
This really challenged that confidence.
3 times. So, I decided it would do. I had an issue with having enough on the edges to square it up without losing the 1/4" on the edge.
My friend Janice did the same pattern and hers turned out exactly right. Even though she's new at piecing, she has a natural talent for it.
So, this is our first BOM and we are trying to decide on one for December. We already have the first three months of 2013 chosen. It's sure a lot of fun and not as much pressure when it's just the two of us. I'm not ready for a blogworld BOM thing. Maybe someday.
