I was super excited to pick up a new skill but I just couldn't find any fabrics that I really liked for the block - and ones that I wouldn't be too upset to have used if I managed to screw things up big time. Fortunately for me (and everyone else in the group too!), Becca from Sew Me a Song brought along a couple bins of amazing fabrics for sale so I completely scrapped everything that I originally brought with me in favor of some new goodies. The only thing that I kept (because it was so precisely perfect) was the fussy cut text from an ABC panel by Kumiko Fujita that I'm still trying to figure out how to use.
It's kind of amazing how enthusiasm over new fabrics breathes a whole new level of excitement into something right? I had seen Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet line online before, but the colors in real life are really gorgeous. The table and the fussy cut ruler are both from Sewing Pattern in Pink from Homespun Chic by Melody Ross.
I love the finished block and Amy's workshop has made me less leery of trying it out on a larger scale. Thank you Amy!! Check out the SMQG Flickr Group for more sewing machine goodness.
