Back on Track

Diann and I are continuing with Sylvia's Bridal Sampler this year.  I am in no way a fan of foundation piecing and many of the blocks are constructed using this method, so I was pleased (surprised) to find this block came together well with lovely sharp angles.

Our plan, in an effort to keep up the enthusiasm level, is to make a stack of the easier blocks and then move onto some challenging blocks.  A couple of the blocks we attempted last year (eg Tennessee, New Mexico) really threw me.

I'm still in love with this Oh Cherry Oh fabric and have so much that I'm planning to use it for our on-line group's 2011 BOM as well.

Stitching group starts back tonight after our Christmas break.  I might work on a Butterfly Garden block.  I have so many stacks of fabric ready to cut into and patterns waiting to be sewn/stitched but I really should make an effort to work on some of my WIP's.

This block looks great!

Joy and I are also making the SBS blocks. We are doing them by the row so we can put them together as we go. We started by doing 10 blocks a month but now we are only doing 5 a month. There are some CRAZY hard blocks and we didn't want to burn out. Just when you think you finished an impossible block the next one comes around and is worse. LOL!
