This week I have been doing quite a bit of paper piecing, a technique I really enjoy.
I recently bought the book Vintage Quilt Revival. Many of you will be familiar with or even own this book as it was first published in 2013 (I have a LOT of catching up to do!)
I have decided to try most, if not all, of the blocks in this book and eventually combine them all in a quilt.
My first completed block is the Classic Geometric Star.
The medallion centre is complete so now I’m working on my cross and plus blocks. I’m using some beautiful Sarah Watson Biology fabric.
The cross blocks are paper pieced and each quadrant is a tiny 1 1/2 inch square!
I’ve also been busy trying to finish quilting my Swoon Quilt as my July Finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
With only three days to go, unfortunately I don’t think this goal will be achieved.
But overall I am feeling quite happy and inspired again with a few new projects on the horizon. So this has prompted me to ask the question:
Are you happiest working on one project from start to finish or are you like me and need a variety of different projects to choose from, depending on your mood?
