I am so excited I spent most of yesterday cutting out all my fabrics, itching to use my new sewing machine that dh bought me for christmas. I have never done any quilting before and my sewing skills are OKish, I can sew in a straight line.
After having a few probs with the automatic needle threader I practiced on a bit of scrap material and then I went for it. I have now done 2 blocks and all my seams line up which was the thing that I was worried about most. I think it had a lot to do with ironing before I stitched each strip together. I am so pleased with myself and needed to share LOL
