A Little Paper Piecing....
|My hand dyed fat quarters|
I've been doing a little paper piecing this weekend. A fellow blogger Kristy, showed her pieced block in this pattern and I just about flipped for it. It's called Thuban and was only .99 cents through epatterns. I thought it would be perfect for the 12 fat quarters I hand died earlier in the week. 12 fat quarters, 12, 12 inch blocks. Viola - a quilt! That was before I pieced the block. OMG! Talk about intense! There's LOTS of little bits and LOTS of piecing. This was probably not the right block to choose for a very inexperienced paper piecer. But you know, I've never taken the easy road with anything, why start now?
