I am participating in the
and am really enjoying learning about
these strong, courageous women
who traveled out west.
The first two blocks went together like a charm.
Then... the third block instructions were released.
Y Seams... yuck!
I have not had much luck with these in the past,
but decided to give it a try and conquer these things.
Well...I stitched.... I ripped.... I stitched some more
and ripped some more.
After several frustrating attempts, my block went into the trash.
My quilt will only have 9 blocks instead of 12,
or I'd make two of one block.
That's okay... right??
Then one day I was reading this blog post
and was saved!!
Here is my third block and no Y seams were involved!
Thank you, Barb!!
After making my Doll quilt for the swap and sending it off to Kathy,
I decided to make the same little quilt for myself.
This little quilt is one of my all time favorites.
The applique block is finished, but not trimmed.
The rest of the little blocks have not been cut or sewn yet,
but I will begin work on those soon.
Now it's sunglasses time!
All of the Kaliedescope blocks are sewn together
and have created quite a busy center!
I could play with these all day...
arranging and rearranging.
Hopefully I'll find a fabric for an inner border today
and finish this top this week.
I'm thinking lime green or orange.
What are you playing with today?
