Isn't it great to get something from your wish list tackled?
as soon as our library reopens that will be the first place I ask for other dies.

This has bothered me for years! I dragged through finishing it and just hated how it looked. I ended up giving this quilt to a dog rescue and they cut it up for coats for the dogs to go to their forever homes. At least it got good use from it.

I now have 17 blocks done. I am going nice and slow so I don't make a mistake. They are continuing to come out perfect. I had to do a bit of 'scrap' cutting. When I discovered I didn't have enough for 16 blocks. I went back into the scraps I had from the first die cutting and discovered not only did I have enough pieces for a 16th but for a whole 20! Now there are only the smallest of scraps left. I was so afraid I would have to use a different fabric combination to finish a 16th block that I started searching for that before I checked the left over scraps! I learned a very valuable lesson there. Save time and distress, look first! It will be several more days before I have the top finished.

Your message encourages me. Beautiful job, Congrats mastering that lesson.

Really nice!! I started quilting a year ago and the first one was a sampler Christmas quilt. One of the blocks was the Drunkard's path. I really did not like doing it because it reminded me of setting sleeves! Looking at your pretty blocks makes me want to maybe rethink this.
