Northcott Block of the Month - Block 1!!
I have been away for a few months. Away from my blog, but mostly from my sewing machine. Busy at work & busy with my kids' soccer and skating. Just plain busy.
I went to Sew Have Fun today to pick up blocks 3 & 4 for the Northcott Block of the Month. I still had not even cut a piece of fabric on Block 1. Until today! I have a fear of cutting fabric. Especially if the fabric is in a very limited amount and one wrong cut will mean big trouble. Maybe that is why I usually buy an quarter of a meter..... okay, an extra meter...... of every fabric, for every project. No wonder I have such a large stash!!
Well as you can see, I changed all of that today. Block 1 is complete! And thanks to the Marti Michell templates, it was easy to cut and easier to piece! The rest of the blocks still frighten me, but now that I have Block One under my belt, who knows? Maybe Block 2 won't take another three months!
