Starting Out

This Katie Jump Rope fabric is some of the first fabric I bought when I started quilting a little over a year ago. I recently purchased some more, but it was much harder to find now! I had no idea that it would be so popular back when I first bought it. I had a pattern in mind that I was going to use it for, but I wanted to work on my skills before cutting into it. Then life stepped in, and I was too busy for quilting for several months.
Last week I finally cut into it though, and I'm loving the look of the string blocks. You're probably thinking that I still look like a beginner, but I promise I'm much better than I was when I first started! I sort of blended tutorials from Ashley and Rachel to make these blocks.I was waiting for some more fabric to have a bigger variety in my blocks, so I only have three done so far. I love the looks of them though, so much that this is what I am sending out this month for one of my quilting bees. I still need to make several myself though, because I want this to be my biggest quilt to date.

I hope to have more to share soon!
