The heart pattern is from Carol Doak’s book Show Me How to Paper Piece. Have I mentioned before how much I love paper-piecing? Yeah, I thought so. Some folks are really intimidated by it which gives me a chuckle because I can paper piece, people, how hard can it be?!?
Here’s a shot of the back…
Lollipops, anyone? I also tried something a little different when I went to quilt these babies. Instead of marking my lines with a pencil or disappearing marking pen, I used (drumroll, please) masking tape. I learned two things by doing this:
1) You get nice, straight quilting lines without the worry of ‘will the pencil/pen marks wash out’
2) Masking tape, even when you DON’T sew into it, gums up your needle and makes your stitches skip
So, will I be using it again…probably not. Actually, no. But it was worth a try, right?
On the home front, my son’s school basketball team finally won a game…WHOOP!!!!
This is the only shot I’m allowed to show you, ’cause geez Mom it’s like totally embarrassing since you’re gonna put this on eBay and all. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was my blog and not eBay…would anyone on planet Earth pay to put up with all his drama and sarcasm? I think not. I wonder where he gets it from?
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at freshly pieced.
Happy quilting, y’all!
