It’s no big secret – I do love to paper piece. And this week has seen a lot of paper piecing happening!
For starters (or finishers?!) I just made my final block for the And Sew On BoM. Yep. That’s my shameful secret – I was behind on my own BoM. Shocking isn’t it? But I’m caught up now and ready to put these blocks together!
Here’s how all my blocks are looking so far:
So the block that I left til last was Spoolin Around. But it’s done now. With a bit of Good Morning Honeycomb background, some Feathers spools and some of my favourite Running Stitch which has featured in a number of the other blocks.
Now I need to work on the sashing. I had originally bought this black and white sewing stitch print thinking it would be ideal for this project. But now looking at it with the blocks, I think it may all be a bit busy and I might be better with a solid. I must decide soon as I need to get this finished to share with you next week. Don’t worry though – lovely BoMers have until the beginning of November before you need to share your big reveal in the Show and Tell party! I'll post more info about that next week.
And because I didn’t feel like this was enough paper piecing for the week, I have also been working on my Feathers paper pieced blocks. All 37 of them. Not all in one sitting. Even I'm not that crazy.
More on this project soon! Must say I am loving the Sun Print Feathers collection though. It may be almost as much a favourite as Sketch! Almost.
Last but not least, I think this next project will not be paper pieced. I can’t say for certain yet as I haven’t definitely decided on a pattern for this bundle of Koi. All I know is I think I’ll pair it with the grey solid that’s in the background.
I am leaning towards a pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson – either another Spanish Tiles quilt, or a Starlit one. Decisions decisions.
But first I’d better get the And Sew On quilt top together. That’s the first priority on my WiP list!
Oh and a reminder – the linky party for the Holiday Memories Mini Quilt contest at Celtic Thistle Stitches opens tomorrow! Looking forward to seeing all the fabulous entries!
Happy sewing, my friends!
