Stitching the first blocks

After cutting the pieces for twelve blocks yesterday, and sorting it in little bags, today was the day for the first stitch! I chose the blocks I thought would be the easiest and followed the instructions carefully (I even found tutorials on YouTube.) This is one for the first block I made – the Broken Dishes block:

I made three blocks today. One lesson I have learnt is that the more accurate you are when cutting the pieces, the neater the end-product. The other is to iron and iron and iron! I am very happy with the first blocks

Not 100% perfect, but still made my day. I am now feeling more confident
