Well, only one finger cut later (I grabbed the rotary cutter with the blade up....OUCH!) I DID IT!!!!! Wooohooo....thanks Brenda for the jumpstart! I made the foundation for my very FIRST crazy quilt square! Now, it certainly isn't mistake free....I learned a few things as I went along, and I definately have a better idea of it now, but that doesn't matter....those mistakes will be hidden! :)
I won't take the time to point those mistakes out because I am quite embarassed by them, but oh well...live and learn. I never made a quilt like this before, I never did anything like this before with the crazy quilt piecing, so I think I did an ok job for being a first timer. ;)
So....here they are with the first two being the "in progress" pictures...the green gingham fabric that you see is the foundation fabric (what I sewed my wool on to).
You can see the rough cuts of the wool that I didn't trim down until I had them in place and sewn on.
And here is the finished square:
So, hopefully I will be the lucky one and win the wool scrap cuts now after my hard work!!!!!!! :)
A New Year!
