Sewing stress

I'm going to make this

Medallion sampler

We are using Hanne Vibeke de Koning-Stapel's pattern.

So last Saturday I had my first sewing class. We learned how to use the sewing machine and cut fabric with a roller so that in the next couple of weeks I can make some Jacobs Ladder blocks. I have to make 8 blocks and 4 half blocks. As this is very time consuming I'm feeling some stress. Will I get it all done??

This is the group of lady's who are also going to make this Madellion Sampler. We are having a lunch break in this picture.

One is sewn by hand, the other with the sewing machine.

Wat een mooie quilt zal dat worden. Moet je de rest nu zelf gaan doen of komen jullie nog een paar keer bij elkaar?
