I love working with fabric and learning new techniques to help me become better at sewing. Forty plus years ago, my ex-wife was sewing a project and having problems with it. Not understanding why it was difficult, I sat down to the sewing machine, read the manual, the pattern, and thought I can do this. I was hooked. So, thank you Kathy for pushing me to a passion I thoroughly love.

The layout begins..
I finally finished all of the smaller blocks last night. I spent the evening arranging the blocks to see how I liked them. In playing with them, I saw that putting them into color patterns would give me the most bang for my dollar, so to speak. I started out with 6 main colors for the center and black as an accent. Using the central block color as the pattern, I separated the blocks into the colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.
