My First Two Blocks

Hello, I am Sarah and I just started my Nearly Insane quilt. I am using the shirting lines from Renee Nanneman called Isty Bits. There are several collections and I just bought them all because I couldn't decide.This is Block #1.

This is block #2 - I did this one first, but it didn't come out the right size. It is like 3/4 inch short, Oops.

This is my block #2 redo - This one is the right size. Amazing what a small error will cause in such a small block. I now always measure after each additional piece.

How fun to see your new blocks Sarah. You've made them up beautifully. I look forward to getting to know you and seeing you progress.

Welcome Sarah! I've just started also, and find that I'm learning something with just about every block. I love seeing everyone's fabric choices!
