    Well, I have finally decided to kick my fears in the butt and start the "Wedding Quilt"!!! To me, this is a VERY intimidating pattern! Of course, I started it out by telling my dear DIL to-be that since this is a block-of-the-month quilt that I will only be able to do one block a month! Whew---that gives me plenty of time to do a block, rip it out, redo it.....
    Well, I sat down and did the first block and had so much fun with it that I decided to do another one today! I am trying to move slowly with it (first time sewing batiks and it is the "Wedding Quilt"), but I think it is turning out pretty good so far! Wish me luck!!!
    We did change all of the fabrics as well.....will try to keep this updated!

    Oh, be still my heart!!!! Your batiks are fabulous, and you've done a beautiful job on the blocks. I'm such a sucker for batiks. Wow, that is going to be one incredible quilt....and please keep posting pictures!

    I started with block one, intending to do them in order....however, my fav LQS is so nice, they let me use my Joann coupons there! So, I have been buying the fabric pieces only when I have a coupon and I am in town (not often). So, I don't have all the fabric bought yet and wanted to start! So, I am doing the ones that I have the fabrics for first!
