Block #3, and some of 4

This should have been posted a few weeks ago, but I was too busy cleaning my sewing room, which with a big helping hand from a non-quilting friend of mine finally got done this week!  All the fabrics in my closet are sorted by color, and tools and trinkets have their place.  What a chore!  Yuck!  But Oh, what a feeling when it's done, and everything is clean and in place!  I can tell you, even though I haven't made as much sewing progress as I would have liked to, it sure feels good to get that project out of the way!

I have another excuse why ( besides thinking I should rather be sewing that taking out my camera to take pictures)  nothing's been posted:  I've not been happy with Block #3 and how it came out!  
Did have to remind myself that this was a learning quilt, so after leaving it alone for a while, I decided to keep it, and just push on.....

No, I don't feel like pulling out the iron to flatten this one, you're just going to have to make do...

All in all, those fiddly-fingers were a pain-in-the-patootie,  but it's all behind me now, and Block #4 is prepped and looking a bit scruffy from traveling...

...nothing an iron won't sort out.
and waiting in the wings is block #5 being built....


  1. Fantastic blocks! I wouldn't change a thing!!

  2. sewing room cleaning/'s so much more palatable with a good friend by your side...
    Great blocks...BTW =)


  3. I don't see the problem with block 3 - I think it looks very nice! Block 4 will go quickly. Good job on both.

  4. Congratulations on a sewing room cleanup! Your blocks are very nice - you can be very proud of them!

  5. I like the softness of your colors. Very nice. Yes, that block is a challenge, but think how much better your skills are getting with this project.

  6. Very lovely - those little fingers are a challenge and your block turned out so well...I think this block prepares us for the wreath with "fingers" later on in the series!

    Enjoy your refurbished sewing room!

  7. I have been trying to comment for a couple of weeks and haven't been able to until Sharon gave me a hand. You blocks are great and your little fingerlings look just fine to me.

  8. congrats on getting past #3~! (Doesn't it feel good??)
