First Quilt Block!!

I've wanted to start patchwork for ages but every book I've read or anything I've found on the internet was if you already knew what you were doing, knew how to read a piecing pattern and I was starting to get a little annoyed. Luckily a new part work magazine came out a few weeks ago called The Art of Quilting and I bought the first issue to see if it started from a reasonable level and it seems to be the perfect thing if you're just starting!

I managed to make the block that they provided the fabric for without much difficulty, (aside from the odd cat getting in the way of the sewing machine) and it seems to have come out rather well! A couple of the pieces don't match up by about a millimetre but it doesn't seem to have thrown the rest out of line!


Anywho, I've subscribed to the magazine (you get lots of free goodies!) so we'll just have to see how it goes! Unfortunately, the magazine is weekly if you buy it in a newsagents but is delivered every four weeks when you subscribe but that's still one quilt block a week until the next parcel arrives and it means I'll hopefully have time to do other things as well!
