I realized a few things on my first block -- such as the fact that a lot of the patchwork won't show through. This time, I only put the piecing where I'd need it to be.
Still more lessons learned on this one -- like not putting vertical pieced stripes underneath a vertical shape because they won't always be centered and may drive you nuts...
Even with the off center middle stripe, I don't plan to redo this block or any others. I would if it was for someone else... which is not to say I'm *less* important than someone else... but part of the purpose of this quilt is to remind me that it's OK to not be perfect all the time.
I'm all set to start on Block 3. My goal is to complete 2-3 blocks per week, so I will hopefully end up with a finished quilt sometime by the end of the year.
I'm really, really hoping those black inside edges will curl up and fray the way I'm imagining they will.... if anyone has tips or advice for how to make that happen, please let me know!
