Quilt With Us

Startch may be my friend, but pins, not so much

I couldn't wait to get home from work today so that I could finish up my test block for my next quilt.  I checked my emails,  made phone calls, dinner and then nap time.  I guess I should have done that in reverse order!  I know I've mentioned before how dark my house seems to be most of the time.  I knew better than to work on my block especially when working with darker pieces of material and without the bonus of daylight.  So I thought I would use a few pins to help me.  Sense my dark blue material for this quilt won't be here until thursday, I will have time to try again and will work during daylight hours.  This is the finished block.  There will be two different blocks.  This one is the more complicated one of the two.  I do like the look of this one. (Patting my self on the back here!)

Oh my gosh, a pat on the back indeed!  This just keeps getting better.  Thanks for sharing, and please keep posting more!

Hmmm, this block just keeps getting better and better!  Can't wait to see the whole thing.  What's the final size of the block going to be?

wow!  that block is amazing.  And you did that in the dark?  You deserve a lot more than a pat on the back.  Maybe a hot bath, glass of wine, some chocolate and a good book.  Congrats.

WoW!  Very, very pretty.  I do like it alot and I can understand your problem with working in the evening with dark colors.  But if you don't have an OTT light, get one!  Makes all the difference in the world for working at night.  Love, love, love mine!  Can't wait to see the other fabrics and squares!
