FNSI Photos

Well I didn’t get much accomplished on Friday night or this weekend at all for that matter.  #1 daughter didn’t go to bed until 9:15 on Friday night, and Mr. BBQ had to work Saturday.  I haven’t had a chance to work on my sil’s sheep quilt yet, but I did finish up my blocks for the EQ July block challenge.  After making my first block (and it turned out horribly), I ended up making 4 more:

None are by any means perfect, but I certainly improved with practice.  My favorite is this one:

It was good practice making these since my Farmer’s Wife book arrived this past Tuesday.  Without making my Block Swap Adventure blocks and doing the EQ challenges, I probably would quit making the FW blocks after my first disappointment, but remaking these blocks a couple of times has given me experience piecing a bunch of triangles—something I hadn’t done before.
