This Block Only Took Me Three Hours To Make

and it's far from perfect!!!
This is the block we were to make in Sally Collin's day long class on Precision Piecing.  And yes, it took me three hours to make because I was working on the process, and when you are working on these teeny, tiny pieces it is amazing how difficult the process is to perfect!!!  This block is 2" unfinished!!!  Youch!!!

It was a super fun day and Sally is so much fun and a great teacher!!  And patient!!!  Understatement!!!  :-)

If I am ever to learn the patience to do this minature work and complete the quilt for the class, the quilt would look something like this:
That's a pretty big "if" though!!!  :-))

After the class was over, Linda Sidlow invited me to go have dinner with her and Sally and Charlotte Gary, another gal who took the class.  We had a great time eating and talking and enjoying each others' company!!  It was a full and glorious weekend!!!

You are doing quite well. Yes, it is getting use to the process of making "tiny". I adore tiny! Keep us posted on your progress. Loved the quilt show, too.

Quilting is such a beautiful art/craft form, wow...I can't imagine being able to cut the fabric in such straight lines let along sew it in straight lines...your little block looks great:D
