So what is the first sewing I have done? To start a new project!
Jo over at Jo's Country Junction is starting a Crumb Quilt Along, and when I saw the gorgeous blocks she is making, I couldn't resist pulling pieces out of my strips and crumb bins.
Jo's great idea is to start with a piece of solid colour (she chose red, I chose blue) and use this to tie the quilt together. All the blocks are free-pieced (one of my favourite kinds of piecing!) and the first few are Flying Geese with strips added. Here are my first five blocks. I'm really pleased with them and can hardly wait for the next set of instructions!
