The First Quilt Block

I promise not to give play-by-play updates as each block is completed, but I was just so darned pleased at how this first one came together.  Me, a glass of wine, my sewing machine, a Friday night....now just 39 more of his brothers and sisters to put together and we'll have a quilt!

When I was done with the block, there were several little "toast points" of fabric left.  Rather than waste them, I stitched them together into little squares.  I think I'm going to keep doing that as I go along.  It only took about five extra minutes.  Maybe I'll sew them into a matching pillowcase or something?
