SEWING !!!!!!!!!!!! At Last!!!!

I actually spent the day sewing. It has been weeks since I have been in a position to do that. While I was at a quilt show this spring I picked up a new 'tool' and pattern.
So, I have spent the day trying to understand the instructions. Would you believe that if you concentrate and read and follow instructions one step at the time that you 'might' be in a position to understand them?
For some reason I could not wrap my brain around the on point setting for this quilt. I could not start at the upper left corner and work down------------on noooooooooo--------------I couldn't understand the setting until I started with the blocks on the lower left. FINALLY!!! I was in a position to start setting the rows.

This is what I am coming up with. I wasn't sure that I was going to like this, but, the more I get together, the better I like it. I am keeping this small and setting only large enough for a wall hanging. Almost half way there. Once the interior is pieced then a small border and a wider border will be added.

It's been a fun day and I look forward to more just like it.

Have a good week.

Imagine that! Sewing for yourself ... a concept I am hoping to try in the very near future! The directions do look a little complicated there but the quilt looks nice.
