For Scrap-bee-licious, Cath of Wombat Quilts requested paper-pieced blocks in low volume fabrics. Two challenges at once for me. I have always been a bit fearful of paper piecing and I tend to purchase bright, colorful fabrics. I searched the internet high and low for a pattern to tackle, something easy, and with large size sections. I found Happiness in a Block from Quiltmaker. I watched the video (great job, Shayla) and set out to make a test block. It was awesome and I was hooked immediately.
Happiness in a Block - For Cath
My 2nd paper pieced block!
I needed a second block and remembered that Amy Friend of During Quiet Time, had made a gorgeous quilt that is on the cover of a magazine. Off to my magazine collection I went and there it was, American Quilter, September 2013. Spinning Wheel Quilt.
I looked through my collection of fabric and hoped for the best. I love all the fabrics, not sure if the block is too busy, but I like it. Oh, and on this block, I conquered the distaste of partial seams. A big thanks to Cath for pushing me into things I shied away from.

I have much more to share, yet I am out of time.
Thank you for stopping by!
