Craftster Lap Quilt Swap Winter Edition

glitttergirl94- This block is really white, I don't know why it looks beige...

I joined another Lap Quilt Swap at Craftster this past November and have finally finished some of my blocks! I spent most of December trying to finish Christmas presents but now I finally have some time to work on these. I was beginning to get worried that I wouldn't have enough time, but if I focus, I can finish this in time. For these two blocks I used this tutorial over at crazymomquilts.

I have a couple more that are almost done that I can hopefully share tomorrow! I need to make twenty-two total so I have now finished two of twenty-two. Only twenty more to go!

On the knitting front, I noticed last night that I had dropped a stich somewhere so I am slowly ripping out rows. There is nothing more frustrating than going backwards on a project, but I don't want a small hole in the middle of my scarf. Ripping out stiches is hard!

Totally, totally love these blocks. WOW! The florals in the second, in particular, are eye catching. Super nice!

As for the knitting, all I can say is...AUGH! You have all my sympathy and understanding. :)

That's a really neat block -- and it looks so different in all its incarnations.
