Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Can you believe we are down to the last three days?????
Right now, while I'm in the midst of life, thanking God for every breath and every blessing, I'm going to stop here and just tell you what a pleasure it has been to make 30 blocks and present them here!!
I hope you have had some fun with the posts, too! I hope you are inspired to make something you have never made before!!!
And I hope that I've let you in on my little secret that I want the whole world to know...
that you are LOVED!!!
Sometimes all we need to get started on something (anything...like dishes, laundry, a new quilt pattern...) is the knowledge that we are loved! That it's okay to try something and fail OR succeed!!!
When I decided to tackle today's block, I did it without hesitation. I knew that it may or may not work...that my skill may or may not be good enough. And I think I pretty much succeeded...we'll see in the final quilt! LOL!!!
Satuday blocks are blocks using a special quilting tool...so today I used my Big Shot Pro Sizzix machine! I adore this machine....
When I scheduled this block, I remembered that I had bought the apple core die and had not used it yet. (curved edges!! yikes!!!)
So I cut out 8 of them, used 6 and made this...
check out my center!!!! matching points! what???? :) I think that is pretty successful!! yay!!
Something I've found in my block making is that I need to learn how to press better. There is an art to it, for sure!!
One down...two to go!! I love it! and I hope you do, too!! :)
See you tomorrow for our simple back to basics block!!
