I went on a bit of a binge and bought three kits (which I mentioned previously) and joined a block of the month club.
The block of the month sent a bonus block that I think is just a thank you and warm up and I pieced it today using my new machine. It's a small step in the process forward.
I need to trim it a little to even up the edge. I like the autumn colors, but lately I've been in a batik lust. I just can't get enough of looking at them. I believe I'll be doing the Craftsy blocks out of batiks. I'd better get started on the January block as the month is half way over.
