    Default My 1st Blocks

    Here's my first attempt ever at making a quilt block. Obviously my 1/4" seams are not consistent and it shows where the side blocks join the center block to form the stars. Do you think they are good enough the the Just One Star charity block program?

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

    They look good to me! Once they are incorporated into a quilt the little "blips" seem to disappear.

    I looked close and couldn't see any thing wrong. They look good enough to send. It took me two attempts to get mine right.

    Great job. I should be down in the sewing haven making more right now.
