I rarely do paper piecing. I just can't seem to get the knack and spend so much time fussing with it that I don't enjoy it at all. In an effort to expand my abilities I do try and do one or two small paper piecing projects a year thinking that someday it all my click in my head and maybe I will enjoy doing it more.
I made this runner several months ago. Nice big pieces, thought it would be a piece of cake and real quick. Well it wasn't hard but by the time I made 16 segments and made them into the 3 blocks I was ready to be done with paper piecing for another year. I finally got around to quilting this runner sunday and put the binding on yesterday. Hopefully one night this week I will get the binding hand stitched down.
Yesterday I quilted a fairly nice sized batik customer quilt so decided my project for today would be a charity one. I did a quick swirl quilting in red/white/blue thread on this little soldier quilt made by my hubby. I need to get the binding on and stitched down and a label added to be donated at our next guild meeting on the 8th.
This afternoon I have some errands to run and some work to do around the house but hope to get an hour of "me" sewing time later today when I plan on joining a few more blocks for a warm wishes Christmas present. I currently have 7 out of 11 rows done so not bad.
