I think I’m going to move the weekly post to bi-monthly and just do two weeks at a time. Y’know. To keep it a little easier. We’ll see. Things have been really crazy, so I think I’m going to try to do these blocks each day they come up, instead of all at the end of the week. That being said, I’m done with weeks 7 and 8! It is absolutely CRAZY how fast time is flying by.
Whew! Week 7 was a bit difficult. And it’s not because the blocks were hard- they were actually pretty straightforward. My issue has lain with the fact that this week I was getting into the groove of things and did NOT read the directions the whole way first. I assumed I knew what to do based just on the cutting directions and the picture.
Learned my lesson. Read the directions first. I’m probably going to wind up redoing the first two blocks later on, but for now… I have a lot on my plate! I’ll tell you about it later.
For week 8, the very first day had a bit of a snafu- when I clicked on the directions, it gave me the directions to sew it together but no directions on what to cut! I wound up figuring it out, but it took me a little bit. I’m super excited, because (spoiler alert) Week 9 contains the center block, and I am SUPER stoked about how it’s turning out!
Remember how I said I had a lot on my plate? In the next month I need to complete the following: bind three quilts, put sleeves on two of them for our local guild quilt show, create two baby quilts, and a really cute dog quilt commission. So I have to really work to get these done!
Here’s the complete collection so far!
