Let me tell you that this block has tested my nerves. It has been my little grain of sand in the oyster turning into a pearl. While it's not my best sewing project ever, and I'm still not totally happy with the end result, my very first quilt block is finished. I've learned a lot from little squares of fabric. I'm still deciding if I want to take off the edges and re cut them or just let it be. I have the rest of the year to figure that out, so for now I am able to look at it and be ok with it.
