Quilt Along---Week 2

 Well I got a jump on it this week, I am so excited, I couldn't wait!!  Each week of the sampler will build on the skills of the week before and get a little more challenging.  I was happy this week that I seem to be getting a feel for it.  With the tutorials and prep work I did last week, I'm in a groove and the cutting went like a snap.  I pieced and sewed the blocks last night and voila, I now have to wait a whole week for the next pieces!  I will say that I seem to have developed some ability to visualize how to sew the blocks, I only needed to refer to the tutorial once during the double four patch!  So, now that I've gotten way too big for my britches, I'm sure the next assignment will seriously challenge my new found confidence :)
  Plus
I'd say with both patterns they iron well but begin to look a little wavy once some time passes.  hmmmm.
Double Four Patch

I think that the last week has confirmed for me that this is why I wanted to sew.  This may be my niche and I can't wait to do more.  I'm so excited that my 9 year old Sidney has caught the bug.  She is currently sewing her mosaic/16 patch and making her own scrap quilt.   I guess she's getting a leg up on that girl scout sewing class she's signed up for in August!
