Challenges

When we got our February swap partners, I was paired up with Brenda T.
I looked and said a lil-prayer as I needed to look up the directions for the block I needed to make as I've never made it? (always thought it was ..too difficult)
I then received a email from my swap partner that the block I'd requested she had never made...
Oh I thought, a challenge month for us both! Smile
So....
Off I started....
This was a very nice block to put together
and I made one
then saw some pictures of this block made with four colors and tried that.
I thought my first was not just as exact as the first..? Ever thought that?
So, I made another and really liked it and I am so thrilled as now I know that this block is really beautiful when made and really not as difficult as I'd once thought!
I sure do hope they fit in with Brenda's collection
And thank you Sue for pairing us up. As now, we both after years of quilting know a 'new' block!

The one on the right is the second block...
along with a lil-Valentine's treat!

That's the great thing about this group is learning new skills, I know I have tried many new blocks that I may not have if I didn't have to get out of my comfort zone. You did a great job on both blocks.

You've done a great job. I made that block for the first time last month and it was a challenge but I would definitely make it again.
