Paper Piecing Party – London Calling!

 I’ve been on a bit of a design kick lately – and it’s all thanks to Midge. She is Queen Wombat this month and chose the great theme of “London”. So I got busy coming up with some patterns! It so inspired me, I even jumped right in and made my block already!

Here it is! A London Guard.

London Guard

I think the textured prints really make him – Sketch for his hat, Raindrops for his jacket and a great braid-looking print for the strap and shoulders. I”m pretty pleased with how he turned out!
And for the curious – here are the other London patterns that go with him! They will be released later down the track.

So that’s what’s been going on in my paper piecing world lately. How about yours?

Quick refresher on what the deal is with the Paper Piecing Party (full details here):
* It’s on every weekend here at Quiet Play, starting Friday.
* Link up something you’re working on that’s foundation paper pieced

This is a great set of patterns; your pictures look wonderful, so I am looking forward to seeing them sewn up, as they always look even better in fabric. I can see a bit of a world trip happening.
