Here is my very first REAL quilt block. My first homework assignment from Judy. It really was difficult. Not the sewing really, just the layout. I wasted a lot of Echino fussy fussy fussy cutting and still it isn't perfect. WTF? The quilts you see out there are truly thought out. I spent two nights thinking about placement and still and only now do I notice all the potential changes, but there are only so many 2 1/2" combinations of multi colored polka dot and an ultra spaced out design that one can tolerate. What was I thinking? I should have chosen the blurred grape motif. BUT... I did settle on a pink diagonal and and orange one too, and green only where you see it. Damn if that birds' tail isn't cut off. I only looked left and right when cutting, not up and down. *%$#!!
Spent the day delivering wine before we had a picnic at the beach where Ida turned into the Scary Sand Fairy who eats people. Then we had to leave.
