Aiming for Accuracy Start

Okay I finally started the A4A quilt by Michele Foster at Quilting Gallery. Here are the colors I selected. If you didn't get in on the ground floor when all the patterns were free, Michele is now offering them in a booklet format for $12. I signed up and downloaded all the patterns months ago, it just took me this long to get around to working with them.

I already had the black, white, and red fabrics and I needed one more yard so I choose the blue from my stash to make things pop.

I have the first block done.

This one was fun to play with the various layouts you could get out of HST units but I ended up going with the original plan. The only question way, which color way?

Life is full of tough choices, isn't it?

This block was supposed to be 15.5" square. Mine is 15.375" square. So it seems that I still having some aiming to do to get my accuracy. Oh gee, I guess I'll just have to practice. And practice and practice and practice. What a shame, all those quilts I'm going to have to make. I'm devastated. Heartbroken. Really.


  1. Beautiful fabrics and a neat block, You are getting pretty close with your accuracy! Thanks for sharing.
