Remember yesterday when I told you there was a fourth quilt project I started? This is Block #1 of Camelot!
Sometimes when I'm feeding Olivia in the wee hours of the morning, I'm surfing the web and "accidentally" buy things. After viewing some absolutely drop-dead gorgeous quilts and blocks made from this pattern, one hopped in my etsy cart and travelled all the way from Australia to me.
Camelot is quite a ambitious pattern by Trish Harper which includes templates for sixteen unique circle blocks which are meant to be hand-pieced. Pretty crazy, right? I jumped right in, cut all my fabrics for block one, started the hand sewing and decided I wouldn't have a Camelot quilt of my own for decades with this approach. So I took it to the machine and voila! I think it turned out okay! It's definitely not perfection, but as with most things, I'm trying to take this as a learning experience. And my Y-seams actually lay flat. After finishing Block One, I started looking through the rest of them, and let me tell you, this one is child's play compared to the rest!
But I figure, if I can conquer Camelot, there is not a lot of other piecing in the quilting world I can't accomplish!
