Lori Holt’s Granny’s Garden Sew-A-Long officially kicked off last week so here’s my update! The first four blocks are done (every week has four blocks assigned to it) and they were a blast to make! I’ll admit that I cheated a bit and didn’t stop at just the first four blocks.

I went on a nice little quilting rampage that lasted several days and resulted in over-TV’d children, a messy dining room table, and several orders of take-out for dinner. But I finished the first twenty blocks and it feels good to be ahead of the game, especially since I’m ready to stop living in limbo in regards to moving.

Really the only hiccup I ran into was with Block 3 when Little Man decided he wanted to “help” me quilt while I had my back turned. Aren’t children lovely!

I reinforced the cut up area with fusible webbing and a second layer of white fabric and then satin stitched over all of the cuts Little Man had made. In the picture above you can kind of see the outline of the layer of support fabric, but I’m sure that it won’t be noticeable once the circles are appliqued onto background fabric.

The damage.

The damage.

“I helping Mommy!” Yeah, sure you are.

Looking forward to updating you lovely people next week, and I’ll look out for you on Instagram if you decide to join along too!

Happy Quilting!
