I got the first block of my quilt top done. It isn't perfect. There are lines that don't quite match up. However it is pretty darn close for a first proper attempt. It measures in at 39 inches so that is spot on. Now I just need to complete another 3 just like it and then sew them together.
The fact that it is ending up a bit bigger than I planned does mean that I may have to buy a little bit more material to put a border round the back piece to bring it up to size or I will be loosing some off the pattern on the front and that will look odd.
So I need to get these other 3 blocks done by Friday night so I can go buy the rest of the stuff on Saturday. Best get looking for a stencil online.
