Look! Look at my center block!

Remember as kids you would say Look! Look at me!  Well, that's what's I'm doing.  

Check this out.  I finished the center block!   Can you tell I'm excited?
When I first started sewing quilts I saw a feather star and thought "I'll never be good enough to do that."  And I'm still not!  LOL  There's a few minor errors in this one.  My next one will be perfect. (hopefully)

I used the tutorial from Molly's Place.   I loved sewing this. She gave wonderful instructions - I mean  WONDERFUL.  They were easy and precise with load of pictures. THANK YOU MOLLY!  My only problem was finding that 1/4 seam on my machine. I had to resew a couple seams.  I should have used my 1/4 foot - well, I will next time. Molly told me to, but I didn't listen.

I looked back to see when I started this - I cut it out July 2011 - 18 month ago! Okay, I know I had some distractions - but 18 months worth?  Good thing you all were not holding your breath!  LOL  Once I started sewing it went together very quickly.  

Happy Stitching,
Linda
