In between other things, I have made a few more blocks with my Riley Blake Modern Quilt Guild challenge fabric. I hope to start putting them together tonight, come back in a week or so to find out what I am making.
Paper piecing. I had decided that I wanted to make some paper pieced blocks to add to my Christmas quilt (see my previous post), so I did. A bit difficult to start, but you can make so many wonderful designs without having to be super-accurate. Thanks to the many tutorials out there, I taught myself.
Based on comments on my last post, I see that many of you also want to learn paper piecing. So I will share my process and tips in upcoming weeks. This block is from a book I purchased a year or so ago, called 1000 Any Size Quilt Blocks. It is a great resource of a wide variety of types of blocks, some pieced and some foundation paper pieced. It actually is supposed to have another star in the very centre, but I wanted to feature the Riley Blake fabric a little more so I left it like you see.
