My First Block

Fair & Square Block

I'm stoked with the result of my first ever block I have just finished. mrgreen It turned out so much better than what I thought.

Going to make another one the same, but in different colours. Then I will be able to with more confidence, make my first block for the 2009 embroidery swap I am taking part in for the next 12 months.

The practice ones aren't going to waste either. I'll use the trial blocks to learn about colours and putting them together. Then I'll make up a quilt for our cats, when the swap is finished. The cats will love their quilt. lol

I was more comfortable with measuring and using my rotary cutter as well.

I'm off now to find more material for the next block.
