My First Block!

I am so excited – I have finished up my first block. I had to start over on my blocks because I was not happy with the colors I had chosen for the stitcheries. I am still a little uncertain with the colors of the tulips but I can always change it later if I want. I loved going through my fabrics trying to find just the right ones and I absolutely love what I picked!

Your first block looks very nice. I can imagine how exited you are. I had the same happy feeling with my first block finished. Hopefully No.2 block will be a little easier.

I like your fresh colours and matching fabrics. I love this Stitch-A-Long and "talking" to Q-friends.
Happy Stitching to you :-)

I love the way it looks. Watching the slideshow and seeing all the different choices for fabric is amazing.
I've still not gotten started.

I think your tulips look great! Your block is beautiful. The fabric colours and the thread colours are gorgeous. I haven't yet got started either. Still waiting for my book. Will have lots of work to do to catch up!
