Block Two


With the holidays I was very behind in the layer cake quilt along sponsored by Moose on the porch quilts.  I am supposed to be starting block five this week, but only finishing block two.  Thankfully, I will have time this weekend to finish up the rest of the blocks. 

I am very new to quilting.  I really have never made a quilt andI probably need to take some classes to really learn how to quilt.  It is not perfect.  I have trouble matching my triangles when I quilt.  This block came out a little different than what I had wanted.  I messed up when I cut the pieces, and didn't cut the right amount of fabrics.  Since I only have the layer cake fabric to use, and I have sworn off spending any more money on fabrics for a while, I had to work with the mistakes I made.  I think the block came out okay.  It is  a little small, so I may put a border on this block.  I really am glad I started this quilt along.  It is forcing me to work on something I may not ever had done before. 

The quilt I am making is very colorful.  It is going to help me beat the winter doldrums.  Here in Iowa it is very snowy and cold, although it is supposed to warm up today to 40 degrees.
