Quilting - We have a lot of acronyms. HST. FMQ. WIP. WTF. Ok that last one isn’t technically quilting related but I think I say it a lot when I’ve finished a block and realise I have to unpick it. Or I sew a curve on backwards. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
But back to the topic. NYB is the latest acronym needed in my world. Mainly because I’m too lazy to type out the entire name. Gemma is Queen Wombat this month and has asked for New York Beauty blocks (see why I’m just going with NYB?). In case you’re not sure what they are – they are paper pieced blocks, with curves. Just for a bit of extra added challenge.
I am a bit slow going with my sewing as I’m a bit under the weather lately so haven’t been quite as productive as I would have liked. So instead of an entire block to share today, I’m just going to share a quarter. Because that’s all I’ve got so far! So, here, enjoy this quarter block! You only have to have a quarter of the admiration, I’m ok with that.
Don’t worry, I do have plans for the other 3 quarters. I’ll get to them soon hopefully and my grand plan will be revealed! See, here’s evidence I am planning more. Look at those super organised scribblings of just one letter to remind me of which colour to use where. It’s such an awesome system, that I totally put the colours in the wrong place to what I had planned (another WTF moment). But I’ll make it work.
So forgive the slow sewing. I am hoping to be back to my normal sewing self soon. In the mean time, let me live sew-cariously through you. Show me what you’re paper piecing this week!
