    Hi everyone

    I finally got to sit down this afternoon and I sewed my strips together which there is 3 strips altogether for my block. I took a picture of my very first Sewed Quilt Block. I am making my very first Scrappy Quilt. This is Block #1.

    I am going to work on Block #2 tomorrow and get that put together. When I get that one put together than I will take a picture of that one as well.

    I am having a total of 4 blocks altogether for my Scrappy Quilt. I like to keep it small since I am learning and I don't want it too big.

    VERY GOOD!!! It looks like all your corners match up perfectly! :) Keep going and start slow. I got "stuck" becuase I had a big project I got board with. Now I just make blocks and see what happens. Maybe one day it will turn into something - maybe it won't, but I had fun. That is the whole point :)

    Keep it up.

    All your corners match - that is a great beginning! Will you make it into a wall-hanging?

    Good start! I suggest you get in the habit of pressing as you go...It helps keep things straight when sewing rows and blocks together... :D

    Thank you so very much for all of the lovely comments about my first block. I forgot to mention to you that I even took it to the lqs and the lady that is part owner of the shop told me that I did really good considering it is my first time. I was so happy to hear that.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it after I get it all put together. I am going to keep it since this will be my first one.

    Oh and when I went to the LQS I bought Quilting Needles - Size 10 - and a spool of white cotton thread.

    Great first block! Be sure to press your seams and press your block!

    What LQS do you visit? I also live in Indiana.

    Great job, the nine patch is what I began with, there are so many wonderful combinaions of putting this pattern together and they all make super quilts, it is one of my favourite blocks even though it is not a difficult one to do you can get some great effects with it!
