    Yesterday's Sewing Saturday project

    Yesterday was my quilt guild's Sewing Saturday. We do it third 3 Saturday... but anyhooo... I started the day off cutting and piecing the center to this wall hanging. The pattern is from Big Block Quilts by Magic.

    I am making this for my niece who graduated college last year. I emailed her a picture of it. I think it might be a bit too girlie for her so I might be making a different one for her. We'll see what she says after I hear back from her....

    But I thought I'd share the beginning of this project. I need to resew the top half to the bottom half. It is about 1/8" off in a few places and it irritates me so I have to fix it. To me, it sticks out and yells at me. I'll work on ripping it out maybe this afternoon.

    It is from the Big Block Quilts by Magic book. The diamonds are not that easy and the way that this book does it makes it even easier - although there is quite a bit of waste - which I will use sometime I'm sure. I have another one author's other book as well Stars by Magic and that one I like a lot.
    I got the book that this pattern was out of just for this pattern. The rest of the book has nothing of interest to me at all. I was happy when I saw this book in C&T's spring sale so it cost me very little to get the pattern.

    I am hoping to make one in colors for me soon. I just need to get background colors and then I'll be good to start on mine

    Your color choices are lovely! I can relate to your frustration about being 1/8" off - how does that happen when we're so careful??? I can't see it on yours and she'll love it.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Sadly my niece did not like it :'( however I think her sister will love it - and she's graduating college this winter so it might come in handy yet.
    I ran in to town today to get some mid range colors. I'll be washing and cutting fabric tomorrow...

    Sorry your niece didn't like it. I think it is very pretty and nice choice of fabrics. The next one you make won't have the 1/8" off and should go so much smoother!
