One Vortex Block Completed.

You know from my last post that I enrolled in Elizabeth Dackson's foundation paper-piecing class on Craftsy (affiliate link), mostly because I wanted the patterns that came with the class...

I pulled some of my scraps to make a mini quilt using the vortex block from the class.

 Here is the work in progress (half the block). Please forgive the poorly lit cell phone photos...

 And here is one of the completed blocks. I have three more blocks to make. This block took me most of the day, not because it's difficult (it's not), but because most of it was sewn with an almost 7 month old sitting on my lap (gotta start young, haha). If you haven't tried sewing with a baby in your lap... well I don't recommend it.

 It feels good to be sewing again, for the first time in 7 months. I really missed it.
