“What? More paper piecing!?” I hear you cry? That’s right. More paper piecing. I’m addicted, happy to admit that. And after a fun paper piecing party on the weekend,well I just want to paper piece even more!
My latest WiP is a mini featuring 4” umbrellas. That’s right 4”. Not only am I addicted, I may be slightly crazy. But! Look how cute these are! Worth the crazy, right?
I still have another 6 umbrellas to go. We’ll see if I think it’s worth the crazy then. Those seams on the brollies are a bit of a nightmare to line up at this tiny size!
I tried to find out what the collective noun for umbrellas is. One suggestion was a Phalanx of Umbrellas. Ummm what the? That does not suit the cute.
I like the suggestion of a “bevy of brollies”. Now that has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Regardless of the official term, my planned mini will go by Rainy Days I think. Appropriate for our weather of late - though today is making a mockery of that – it’s beautiful and sunny and even a bit warm!!
Meanwhile I turned my little helicopter blocks into something. Orphan blocks no longer! One became a cushion for my sister (brag brag – helicopter pilot sister – end brag)
And the other became a bag to go with the Collaboration quilt Fiona and I made.
On the theme of turning odd blocks into something useful… we (collective we – as I have roped a few other quilty girls into this plan!) are thinking about a blog hop to share some fun ideas on how to incorporate paper pieced blocks into… things. What do you think? Sound fun? Want to join in? Can’t wait? Well more details will be on their way soon! Right now it has not gone much past the idea stage. Will work on that. Ooh another WiP – of the thinking kind!
So that’s how my Wednesday looks. How about yours?
