Paper piecing workshop development and sample made, CHECK! And totally drool worthy if I don’t say so myself.
The Foundations of Paper Piecing Workshop is listed if you find yourself with some spare time on March 14th.
A New York Beauty block has been on the bucket list F-O-R-E-V-E-R.
I bought just enough new make me happy fabrics and combined them with some old to create a new to me color way. It seemed to just come together on the design wall so effortlessly. As usual it matches nothing in my house.
The white/creams I pulled from the scrap bins. There’s even some flannel in there.
It ended up that neither the shot cotton and the flannel on the front, nor the voile on the back created the headaches I imagined.
I crosshatched it in a lightly variegated lilac thread. This easy off the edge quilting design has the kind of impact makes me happy. Off course all quilting minds of Seattle that I saw last week were consulted;)
I almost put the voile back into the stash.
It’s one of those fabrics I have to force myself to cut into if I had curtains in mind five years ago. There’s still that hope of getting to that alive;) The decision was a good one, it pairs perfectly with the front.
If you’re headed to Quiltcon please go say hi to my quilts. There are two on exhibit and I just finished up this one here for display there in Island Quilter’s booth.
It will look a little bit more lively than it does it this taken at midnight photo.
This quilt thoroughly falls under the “it doesn’t have to be perfect to love it” category and I considered not sending it due to some obvious struggles I had quilting it, but then I reminded myself that perfection isn’t what it’s all about.
Happy week peeps. I hope it’s a good one;)
