Out of the blue, I picked up a fat quarter that I just loved. It was part of a collection that I purchased over the course of the summer. Before I knew it, the color selections were getting easier and easier. And I had scraps that I could add in as well that I really liked. So I started over.
I am working through the book from the beginning. I'm making each block in order and working through my stash and scrap basket to make the blocks. They are so very fun. So far I've found this project as a great learning experience. First of all, I learned that I should always work with colors I love. That makes fabric selection easy. Secondly, I should try new things more often. In making these blocks I've tried new techniques and really enjoyed the process. I have to do that more often.
I am 27 blocks into the project and I am still learning new things. The last block I made, I don't like. I realized that even though I love the fabric, it's way too busy for the barn block. I will make another one and replace that one. I can't wait to turn to the next page in the book to see what I will get to try next.
