But, I'm stubborn so have persevered and have kept trying paper piecing and you know what? I like it. I like it a lot!! And though there are loads of patterns out there far beyond my current skill level, I'm happy to stick to the fun ones for now :)
This Seam Ripper block is now a WiP - what should it become? It is 10 inches square so I could put a border on it and make it into a mini... or I could get more of these 'sewing themed' blocks and make a wall hanging. That would be awesome!
My WiP list is still quite huge. Here are just the quilts on my "to-finish" list:
- Mod Sampler quilt
- Wonky Log Cabin quilt (two bees)
- Arrow quilt (bee)
- Wonky Oakshott/Kaffe Star quilt [two Flickr members still have my fabric and don't seem to be active anymore - any advice what to do to get my fabric back??]
- Amy Butler Happy Hour quilt
- Wonky Houses and Tree quilt/wall hanging?
- Wonky Scrappy Star quilt
- Great Granny quilt
And yay - I am ready for the London Modern Quilt Guild Christmas decoration/ornament exchange this weekend. I hope my secret partner likes what I've made [one of these trees may or may not be what I give!!!].
Yes - more paper piecing!!! I love these trees! I made a 4th one but sent it on its way to another ornament exchange. Exciting stuff!! They are each only 3.5" tall so they are nice and light for the tree branches.
I still have to finish my poor pompom snowman - he is still just three balls of cotton yarn. I finally bought some orange felt so there is no excuse to get him done!!
Ok - gotta get back to sewing!! Linking to WiP Wednesday.
