I chose a block of the month from a past Guild newsletter for this charity quilt. After I started making the blocks, I saw a friend who was making a similar pattern, only she had the wits and experience to do some strip piecing first for the boxy bits, which makes it much easier. If only I had thought of that!
Live and learn.
I'm not crazy about the end result here, especially the atrocious pieced backing.
At least I used up some less-than-stellar donated fabric, and practiced free motion quilting some more. Here's hoping someone at the hospital will appreciate it despite its imperfections.
