My first block

Here's the first block for the Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long, hereafter known as the fwqal.  Notice that I can't sew a straight line.  I think my seams match, but the rest is not great.  This is me at my best.   I think I will put sashing between the blocks if I ever turn it into a quilt.  This way I hope to hide my wonky edges.  Sigh.   BTW, this is a baby simple block, and it still took me forever.  I had fun, so that's what counts.

You real quilters out there, I'm no threat to you.  Just in case you were worrying.  tee hee.

The big, big lesson from all my sewing is that I'm not great at it.  I'm adequate, occasionally.  That's not the lesson.  The lesson is that I can really enjoy myself and not be good at something.  A large dose of humility, but that's good for everyone.

Very nice block. Good lesson learned. Perfection is so over-rated...or at least I hope so....
