My First Quilt - WIP

Howdy!

As I have mentioned in a previous post I have been bitten by the sewing bug.  Hard.  I have actually sewn everyday since I received my sewing machine.  :)  I don't know why, but quilting has caught my fancy.  So I started researching quilting and talking to my mom (an amazing sewer) about it.  Apparently I come from a very long, prestigious line of quilters on both sides of my family.  So, I started a quilt.  I began the quilt with these block patterns in mind, a couple of charm packs in Papillion by Moda, and a little bit of yardage in complimentary brown.  I really do love it, unfortunately my cutting skills have not proven up to the task to all of these points :(  My Scrappy Four Patches are pretty, but far from perfect.  So, instead of doing a Four Patch with and X block. I think I am going to change my game plan to a Scrappy Four Patch with sashing and a border, which means this will probably go on the back burner until I get a hold of some sashing fabric.  But, I do have another quilting in progress that I will be sharing with you very soon.  Until then...
