Two more down and up to date! YAY!
B-4 Chris's Soccer Field
This was my first ever real block done by paper piecing. It was a little awkward and I had to redo a few pieces but looks so good at the end. I underestimated a few pieces, not cutting big enough pieces of fabric, so it is a tiny bit off center, but hey, I'll take it!

This block was a lot easier than the last, but since these blocks are the first quilt blocks I have ever made, none of it is simple yet. But I'm getting there. No swearing yet, though I am sure that is yet to come!
I noticed there were a lot of new members to our Baby Jane group. I wanted to mention to anyone trying to get started that the Fabric Depot has a couple of good sales at the moment. You can get the Dear Jane Book and templates for 25$. They also have Kona Cotton white and black on sale, 6 yards for just under 20.00$. That's barely over 3$ a yard which is a great deal from what I have seen.
It feels so good to have stayed caught up with the group. I am starting to run low on some colors of fabric. I wanted to join the swap but I have nothing to swap with at the moment. I need to get a few more little packs. The charm packs are a smidgen too small for most blocks and it is hard to find and in between size so if anyone sees any deals for 30's fat eighth's, quarters or at least 8 in squares let me know! Anina, I have to thank you again for doing all of this. It has been so valuable to me and you make that possible! Anina also just made a fantastic fun quilt and is always making a million wonderful things. Go visit her and give her big hugs and kisses!
