|January Block - Funky Star|
Finally, I just caved and joined the class. So far, the blocks have been beautiful, and exactly what I was looking for. I've never done paper piecing before, but now I'm hooked. There's just something that warms my little ocd heart about the precision of paper piecing and the perfectly placed seams it creates. Granted, it takes a little extra thought and planning, and seam ripping is no fun, but the results are soooo worth it.
|February Block - Exploding Star|
Because I'm impatient to get something up, I pieced the first 3 blocks and pulled greens, teals, yellows, oranges and aquas from my stash to bring some color into the living room. The background for all three is Robert Kaufman Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in black. I love this fabric and the way colors pop off of it. I would love to make a whole quilt with this as the background someday. I'm even thinking about making Jack a pair of pants or a shirt with it! Yes, I'm a little obsessed.
