Yes, I'm starting a new quilt. And Saturday I did the first block. I've been collecting the fabric for a little while now, so I was ready to start. It's from a picture I pinned on pinterest. It will be pieced and applique.
Yes, I did make the center block too big, so I cut off the points, but this quilt is not for a show or anything that matters in that way, so I kept it instead of ripping out.
I did take the flowery fabric out, and then put it back in. I'm really glad I did. It adds nice life to the block.
I want my blocks 12 1/2" unfinished and I found this one with a tutorial, just the right size. That made it easy.
Since I only have one picture of the block, I'll add some pictures of Eloise with friends. It seems lately, we've had her friends over to our house quite a bit. It is so fun to watch them interact together.
