Block made by and tutorial found at modifytradition.blogspot.com
This block was really easy to make, but looks labor intensive. I love stuff like that.
My block made from the Love In A Mist Tutorial
I made one error when sewing up the block. I forgot to line up the points in the middle sections. I also added a print fabric in the middle instead of the plain similar to Oneygirl's block. I made myself one first as a test and to become familiar. I am now going to use the orange, yellow and teal Heirloom line from Joel Dewberry to work on my secret swap partner's zipper pouch. This is for a very special girl for the Post Sewing Summit Swap. I am very excited to make this girl something sweet and fun!
I was thinking this weekend that I need to start making a block a week to push myself and to become more familiar with quilting blocks, as I am still new to this quiliting thing. I think not so bad for one of my first complex quilt blocks - right? I used Kate Spain's line Terrain. My friend Kelly, who owns a fabric store here in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Stitch-n-Lounge, helped talk me into the fabric. I have seen Terrain in projects and LOVE it, but I would look at the bolt and not be so sure. So, I bought a layer cake and now I am obsessed with these bright and happy fabrics. Might be some more Terrain projects being cranked out soon.
