Okay, I jumped in… maybe a bit too quickly… but I have started with my quilting the F2F blocks. Here is the collection again from last June. There will be more blocks added to create a bigger quilt for my bed. It has been almost a year… So why did I jump in too soon?
I should have thought about how the blocks might shrink differently due to more dense quilting…and how that would affect the construction of the quilt. I have come up with a solution to get all blocks to the same size, but it would have been easier if I had taken all of this into account before I started cutting into the backing fabric and batting. Oh well… I will talk about my solution at a later date, but first the first set of pretty blocks on parade!
Block 1, my own. Foundation paper pieced.
Block 2, foundation paper pieced by Annett from Knetty Craft.

Hope to share some more blocks with you soon!
