Paper piecing is something I have not tried before and was quite surprized at just how easy it is to do. With the method I used there is no cutting of shapes just strips and away you go. Below are the first two blocks I have made, the fabric was bought for me by my little son as a Christmas present – he also bought a piece with cartoon whales on it but I don’t quite know how I will use those yet.
I have very nearly matched all the points too! I have to go to the shops now to buy some more of these fabrics so I can make a larger quilt, perhaps I could use his whales in the border, we’ll have to wait and see.
I feel much better having now achieved something creative rather than writing assignments as they don’t feel like achievements somehow.
