Oh my goodness I finally finished my November blocks! Took me awhile to get all the pieces cut out, but I've finally figure out how to make the most of Alex's nap time! As long as my household stuff is done (try and do the night before after he goes to bed) I can work on sewing during his naps. With chain piecing, I flew through the half Irish chains, but I noticed my cutting wasn't always as precise as I though it was. You'd think after almost cutting this entire quilt out, I'd be better at it, but I guess I have more room to grow! I also noticed that we cut a few more white pieces than we needed, not sure why, but I know I have 1 full Irish chain block and 12 half blocks, which is what we are supposed to have! On to December's blocks!
