Melissa's block

I'm having a hard time even posting about this...I feel like a quilting failure. And if I had a new set of material, I'd throw this block away and start over. Which you are welcome to do if you do not like it, Melissa!


I think that's one of the best things about this project. It forces you to create outside your little "safe" box.


I'm pretty sure I didn't stick with the inspiration quilts - which I feel horrible about. I had planned to but man, those curves are tough. There are a few small curves in the block but not as many as I had first planned.

So yeah - it's supposed to be a branch with birds...it looked much better on my paper :-)

I was working on branches too...all mine are crumpled paper on the floor. I think yours are great! Congrats for making it happen. I'm on to a new idea. Keeping my fingers crossed!
