My First Quilt Block

The 2nd Thursday of each month, Freckles Quilt Shop (in Calgary) presents a quilt block that sells for $4 ("Two Xs Toonie Thursday"). The proceeds are donated to schools' lunch programs.

I decided to try my first quilt block. I discovered that Freckles' Two Xs Toonie Thursday quilt block is the same pattern from September to August but the colours vary per month. I guess I'll just have to do a table runner with the 3 blocks that I'll make; in September, I can start working on the next series of Two Xs Toonie Thursday quilt blocks!

This was my first quilt block, which I think is very nice. It measures ~10"x10"

  1. Nice work on your first block. It should make a very impressive table runner. You were very brave going with a fabric that has a grid on it and it looks like you got your seams nice and straight. I'm still mostly staying away from checks and stripes as I don't trust myself to always sew a perfectly straight seam. Well done!
