It's a Start

Here are the first 113 blocks for the two wall quilts I am making for our church's daycare/
preschool. I think I will use a total of 144 blocks but I am making some extras so I can get as nice a layout as possible. The rest will become a Project Linus quilt or a couple of doll quilts probably.

I am using my old 301 machine for the sewing and it has a wide 1/4" seam allowance so I am going to have to trim the blocks a little so they are all nice and square. I think I will have to invest in a 1/4" foot for this machine sometime soon if I want to continue using it for piecing!

This is going to be a fun quilt when it is all put together! Tomorrow I need to cut out the rest of the strips to go around the rest of the center blocks and maybe I can get them all finished so I can take them to Sally's to put on the design wall for layout.
