The Block Party

I'm no social butterfly, but I'm having a good time partying over at Madame Samm's Block Party. She's having guest quilters show off their quilt blocks and techniques, so it's giving me a chance to learn new stuff. I'm no pro at quilting, but I'm having fun with it and love to sew.

Madame Samm posted a block on her sewing blog "Sew I Quilt" and I (so stupidly) commented, Oooooo...my kind of block! It's easy to make, but looks like you really worked at it. :O)"  She kindly responded to my comment and said, "it is a bit tricky to get those seams straights."

Well.......she was right. I had to unpick a few seams to get them lined up as perfectly as I was going to get them, which wasn't all that perfect but not bad. I apologized to Madame Samm through an email for being so flippant about the ease of that block and she made me laugh when she replied, "told you sew."
