RTQA - Minnesota Block

Minnesota quilt block

I started this block so long ago but only finished it today. My machine was getting a tune-up, and then there was an issue getting the knee pedal screwed back into the desk after having to take it out to get it to the shop.  After some drilling with my husband to help while I held the pedal in the exact right place, finally I was back to sewing.

Side note:  Also, if you haven't noticed your calendar recently, summer is getting close to being over! I have only a week before going back to work again full-time. While I won't say I'll never post on this blog during the semesters, it probably won't be very often at all.

Back to Minnesota... I liked making this block. Pretty easy, and the paper piecing was fine for me since I just made multiple templates. And overall, I like the way it turned out, too.

  1. (singing) oooh, back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I'm not a fool. (end singing) Sorry about that. Don't know if you caught the Sandler reference. Anyway. 1 week left. Are you going to try to finish the state blocks? I've really enjoyed sewing along with you this summer!!
