See the little guy in the middle of that square? Wait for it, wait for it ... yeah, there he is! See the squirrel? I love this fabric!
Although I was a bit worried about tackling two squares a week, I actually finished both of these in one night. I don't even want to talk about the many stupid, stupid mistakes I made while cutting & piecing these. I'm attributing it to being overly anxious to get started, and not paying enough attention to the details. Let's just say that, 2 blocks in, I already have a pretty significant pile of mis-cut scraps.
Can you blame me? I am so excited about this quilt, even more so now that I have started putting some of it together. The colors and fabrics are just great ... I hope these photos do them justice. I think this will actually be such a great quilt when it's done -- different squares, with different colors and different animals in each. I almost feel like it will be a "storybook" quilt when it's done.
It's not my best work ... the points and corners don't match up quite as nicely as I've been doing lately, but it's certainly not bad enough to even consider ripping or starting over.
I'm taking some liberties with colors and placement -- AmandaJean's tutorial for both of the above squares only used background and 1 colored fabric ... I'm adding more colors to each block because these fabrics look so nice together. I peeked ahead and I'm excited to see that some of the upcoming blocks have some pretty large squares in them because some of these Full Moon Forest fabrics have large animals that get lost when cut too small.
I also got a pretty good jump on the second square from QAL1. Hope to complete that this weekend.
How's everyone else doing?
