New project!!!

I am finally finishing the 2nd purse today – all that’s left are the snap closures.  Then, I get to start on my new test hobby: quilting.  I checked out a few quilting books from the library and have assembled and learned how to use my nice new sewing machine I got for Christmas.  The fabrics are in the wash right now and I’m ready to start cutting out the pieces – all 160 squares, frowny face.  The first quilt (and maybe only quilt, I’ll see how it goes before I commit to more) is a basic four-patch design of squares only, as easy at it gets for a beginner.  The pattern?  Tetris! tetris quilt

Steve just finished designing it.  There might be a few tweaks, such as moving the open column slightly to the left or right, although in general it’s beautifully done.  I don’t have a good idea of how long it will take.  Are we talking three days?  Three weeks?  Three months or longer?
