Building Blocks Quilt Workshop

Several months ago when I first started thinking about learning free-motion quilting, I came across Leah Day's Building Blocks Quilt Workshop, which I thought was a good idea for learning so I purchased it. I didn't get a chance to work on this quilt until now, but finally, I've started it. Piecing aside, the quilting should be a very relaxing project since this is block-by-block and I don't have to worry about drag. I'm going to take this opportunity to practice the different free-motion motifs I've learned in the past few months.

I'm using a pack of batik fat quarters with black Kona cotton, and the backing for each sandwich is simply a layer cake. Since my HQ Sweet 16 is otherwise engaged at the moment, I'm just making the sandwiches and stacking them up, waiting to be quilted. They actually look quite adorable, and I'm excited to quilt these one-by-one.

This is my first quilt block-by-block project, and depending on how easy or annoying assembly is, it will determine whether I will employ this method in the future.
