New Love

So my mad crazy week has ended but I haven’t gotten back to my sewing machine. In my dash to get some sewing in last weekend, I decided to try something new. Here is my first excursion into Foundation Paper Piecing!

I’m kinda in love with paper piecing!! It definitely was a bumpy ride but it was fun and the results are so pretty! Can you see my mistake?

The lovely ladies at my quilt shoppe gave me the patterns, which were left overs from their Quilting 101 class. I then used some leftovers of Honey Honey (I need a better stash!) and I think its a cute little block (actually 12″ square).

I guess I can’t follow directions because that’s where the mistakes came in. I used the wrong fabric, and cut, for one of the pieces so I had to adjust the pattern. I’m still very pleased with my work, especially since I taught myself.

I can’t wait to dabble more into paper piecing!
