I snuck in a few minutes over the weekend to work on Block 5 from the jelly roll quiltalong. The directions have already been posted to Block 6, but I am playing catch up. I tried not to get behind, but school is keeping me really busy. I am not finding as much time to sew as I would like these days.
This block was a little challenging for a couple of reasons – first of all, picking out the fabric. The line I am using, “Nicey Jane,” has a lot of large scale prints which can be hard to put together in small squares. Next, there were some funny angles in the piecing that I had to get Adam’s help with. I am still learning how to translate pictures and directions into a finished product.
Even with these challenges, I think that it turned out okay. It isn’t my favorite block, but I am learning a lot with each one. Hopefully, I can get caught up on this quiltalong and get Block 6 done before next Monday. The pinwheel quiltalong moved much faster than I could, and many are already done with their whole quilt. I still have four blocks to complete first. I am anxious to see that one come together. I hate getting behind!
