My Hand Piecing Quilt Class

We went to class yesterday. It was a nice small class of only 4 people and the instructor. Our first block to make is the Card Trick. I have always liked this block and can't believe how much easier it is than I always thought it would be. I didn't take the photos until this morning before work so I didn't get to take one of Carole's but I will later. We had a lot of fun and I am glad we are doing this together.

Our instructor made each of us this flannel layout mat so that we would always be ready to sew on our current block wherever we are.

One thing I am sure of is that I am not going to be happy with my whole crib sized quilt being these colors. While I do like them, I am not sure it is going to be a very pretty quilt. Looks like I am going to be spending more money than I planned to. As always, I do reserve the right to change my mind in a minute.

There is always a glare from the florescent lights in my office. I am not a photographer as you can tell. But at least I have learned how not to have my finger in the picture too.

I think it looks great! I'm glad you're enjoying your class.

I had the same color problem with the one I started.
