Michelle's Tula Blocks
She had them nicely packaged in bags and I didn't want her to have to remove them so you see a little bit of shine in the photos, but you get a really good idea of how wonderful they are. I can hardly wait to see her quilt or quilts all finished!
I can hardly wait to start working on mine!
I have been working on Dear Jane blocks which I will show soon. I'm trying to use some of the precision piecing techniques passed on to me by Michelle from her class with Harriet. The tips really help - like starching and pressing the fabric before cutting. The Reliable iron - amazing. And I really like using the Tailor's block I got from Nancy's Notions. I'm loving my DJ blocks, but I did have to do one completely over for failure to read the instructions fully before diving in and sewing. Like not fully reading the clues on the Amazing Race.....
