We got back from our vacation last night. It was an amazing vacation, but to say I was obsessed with the quilt along while I was gone would be an understatement. Needless to say, as soon as I got a few minutes this morning, I started cranking out this week's assignment. Even though I finished the block, I haven't finished the assignment, because I only sewed two pairs of strips together, just so I could get this done. Hey, I do have a lot of laundry and unpacking to do! But at least I'm satisfied with seeing some results!
So here it is - the center block for the quilt!
Not bad, although it's not perfect, and I'm really trying to not obsess about that. After I sewed the 4-patch together, and saw that the corners didn't line up, I ripped out the seam and tried again. It's better than it was, but they still didn't line up. But I told myself not to rip out the seam again, and to just leave it be. I need to be happy with "it's good enough." I also didn't allow myself to obsess about which fabrics to choose for the center block. So I picked, changed my mine once, and that was it. If I obsess about these "little" things, I'll never finish it.
