New Bee on the Block - Test Block

I am exhausted.  I spent the entire evening cleaning and rearranging and organizing my sewing/scrapbooking/getting ready room.  I think this is the first time it's been properly clean in the 2 years I've been living here.  It feels soooo good to have it all done!!

After I finished cleaning I was wiped, but I still had a little time to do some sewing.  Holly sent out fabric and posted instructions for her block for the New Bee on the Block quilting bee yesterday.  The fabric is coming from the States, so it'll probably be a few days. In the mean time I thought I'd test her block with some of my own fabric.  I decided to use the fabrics I am using for the We Can Do It!  quilt along so that I could add it to that quilt if I wanted.

The pattern made me laugh.  Every so often it would say to do something 'carefully'.  Carefully cut this... carefully measure that... carefully sew together...  When am I ever not careful?!  If you know me, you know I'm a bit lot of a perfectionist, so I'm always careful.  I thought it was cute.

 Anyway, I was pretty happy with how it turned out!

Now I feel like I can handle this block and not mess it up and ruin Holly's fabrics!
