Hi there! Hope that you are having a nice week where you are. It has been good here, very productive so far. The weather has been cooler than normal, but we took advantage of that yesterday and
finally put mulch in our two gardens. Now they look nice and neat, love that. In more important news... Finley took her first steps yesterday! Just one or two at a time. She is a little over 11 months, so I guess it is about that time. Sigh.
I am having so much fun with my FWQAL blocks! I love making them. The first one that I made this week is #60 - Noon & Light. I used the templates to make this one, and though it took awhile, it came together nicely. I really like how the book templates work, the notched corners really do make it quite a bit easier to line up all of the corners when sewing. For this block, I used Aneela's Sherbet Pips, AMH Good Folks, and Freespirit dots.
My second block for the week is #87 - Star Gardener. I used a pink woodgrain from Joel Dewberry and a Parisville print from Tula Pink in this one. I love this block, it may be may favorite so far! I have to tell you though, I was so thrilled when I measured it at the end and found that it was the correct size overall. I was a little nervous about that one! All of those tiny little squares and HST's measure 1" finished, and there are close to 60 little pieces in this one 6.5" block.
Okay, time to crawl out from under my Habitat quilt and head out for a playdate with some friends. Amanda will be posting about her blocks later on today, so be sure to check them out too. :)
