Pickledish Block One

Over the weekend I completed block one for my pickledish quilt. It went together surprisingly well. It is a bit wonky in spots but I know that once the whole quilt is pieced it won't be noticeable. Oh, pickledish I think I love you!

Oooh, this looks amazing, Laura! Great job! ;D

I started packing today, which is kind of late, considering I'm leaving in a week, but oh, well ... I tend to procrastinate A LOT :/. There's lots of stuff already there anyways. I took some things and David did too when he came here. Thanks for asking!

Hugs to Tex and Harry James! And to Lola, too!

Have a nice day! :)

Thanks Mary! I hope that as I go along I can piece them together quicker. I did the arches one day a couple weeks ago, and then this weekend pieced the block.

Laura said...

*Hugs* Miki. I bet it is exciting and slightly overwhelming all in one!
Thanks for the compliment on the quilt block. I dare say I enjoyed putting it together!

Tex, Harry, and Lola are napping...just what I want to do! ;)

Dearest sweeet Laura, this looks sooo beautiful!! The colors and the fabrics selection are just awesome! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to yoU!


Mary said...

ok...two comments in one day! sorry! how big is the block? It really looks lovely Laura and not one bit wonky. You did a great job!

Laura said...

Thanks Jacqueline! :)

Hi Mary, I just measured and it's 21 1/2 inches...so a little big. I think Aneela said they end up 20 inches when pieced with the other blocks.
I was surprised to see how large it is!
