Block number/name: TR-10 “Precious Gems”
Date completed: March 12, 2010
Number of pieces: 32
Notes on block: Of the 182 blocks that I have completed, this is the first one on which I’ve actually bled. And on a white section, no less. Ugh! As soon as I noticed, I tried to mitigate by rubbing in some saliva. That actually worked pretty well. But, there’s still a faint stain.
So now it is official: blood, sweat, and tears have all been a part of the making of this quilt. Here’s hoping I don’t do any more bleeding.
