This is the Mosiac #6 block from the GO! Qube Book, and we laughed that it should have been the sixth block she did, but it's all good. This one had a lot of points to match, and she did a great job with that. I love that the GO! Qube dies have all of the corners clipped on these angled pieces, it makes it much easier for Jessica to line them up. And I just love her fabric choices. She is really great at picking a main fabric, and then choosing other fabrics from the block that bring out the colors in the main fabric. So fun!!!
Her Block 5 is the Flashing Windmills from the Go! Qube Book. And on this bock, Jessica decided she wanted to try it "on her own" without any help from me. I stayed in "mom" range so that I could answer he questions, but she wasn't going to let me touch a piece of fabric to aid in aligning or pinning. And I think she did amazing!!! She had a few points that weren't quite so crisp, but learned a lot, and that is what really counts. And as soon as she was done, she wanted to cut out another block, which was a good sign to me that mom's hands off didn't scare her away :)
So this is the 6th block she cut the other day, and I will be interested to see if she wants to go back to a little more mom guidance, or if she is going to keep that spirit of "I can" and do it all on her own. I know I am hoping for the latter, but of course, will be there to assist in any way I can. I am just thrilled that she is loving this. If she can master these shapes in quilting, then she has a great base ;) And once she has this down, we can add some more shapes and angles to the mix, and that is always fun.
I keep hoping to make a little more time to work on more blocks, but life happens. I guess I just to remind myself to be grateful for the time that we get to sew together, and truly, it is so wonderful. I'll keep sharing more of Jessica's Qube Sampler blocks as she sews them up!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
