Aiming for Accuracy Fabric Selection & Block #1

Quilt AlongMy choice of fabric for this quilt-along is Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater.  I've had the fat quarter bundle and layer cake since last year and this looks like a great place to use them. I also have a very large stash of Kona white so I don't even have to shop for anything to get started. I will need more thread sometime in the near future but at least I don't have to run out just for that.

I like to go to the fabric store with a list of the necessary stuff to finish things.  It makes the trip to the store worth while.  Not to mention, if it means I will get more than one thing completed, that is definitely a bonus. 
Quilt Along

I completed the first block and the lesson I learned is how great starch is to use.  My block was so easy to iron and it is nice and crisp. The seams on the back lay down perfectly. There was no chance that they would end up in a glob of flipped over seams.  I am so glad I joined this quilt-along. I already learned something new.
