    I find a lot of joy in the little projects we do. A quilt is a lovely time honored item no doubt but at times just a little project provides such a sense of joy and accomplishment (big part) and that is what keeps me quilting. little things instant gratification and lots of TADA moments vs just one or two big ones a year. I like the excitement of new. new ideas, new concepts, new color palates it all is fun.

    I love what I am seeing cant wait to trade. Mine is easter *like and think yellow gingham, pink and lavender gingham as the main players.. soft and pretty if you like holidays this might work for you . not too much longer now. got my turned in name via PM to Rhonda so hope you do too and are included in the finished list for swapping. yahoooo! thank you Rhonda so much for running this and also the scrappy swap and even the block of the week quilt along. You certainly keep busy!

    I am going very slow, and I think I am trying to make it too hard on just doing it. lol....I have been helping my dad too, and I will have mine done on time, because my 80 year old dad is having knee replacement surgery soon, and I live right next to him, so I will be helping him all I can.

    I think I am going to include a good bit of embroidery in mine too if all goes well. I hope to start some of that tonight.

    Take care everyone. Happy sewing/quilting!!

    Finally found your post Thanks for the reply.I can see what you mean & think you are right.Easier to keep measurement closer,when using same blocks. Hadn't thought of that.

I find it easier to match hst to hst than to try to get the center cut the correct size to match the hsts that you would be sewing to the center.

    when I sew a quilt block like this one together I sew 4 hsts into a 4 patch and then sew the 4 patches together. If you use a dif method for the center your 4 patches may not be the same size.

    but it is up to you as to what you find easier to do. there really isn't any wrong way to do it. Just what you prefer.

    Mine will by no means be perfect, but I do enjoy trying to sew just a little bit better, and hope to accomplish some step of it a little bit better than before.
