It is a nasty day in ENC. Snow is predicted to the north and west of us. We are on the snow rain line, lots of cold rain. A good day to stay in and sew! I finished the placemats for my daughter in law. I was really pleased with the way they turned out.
I was really taken by this quilt but I had never paper pieced. I tried to piece it on my own. I am not even going to show you that. I went to YouTube. Did you know you can find almost anything on YouTube! I followed a couple of videos and this is my first two attempts at paper piecing.
I need some good advice on paper piecing. I honestly had a fit with it. I think maybe I didn't cut my pieces big enough. HELP! I would love to make that quilt!
I have always wanted to do a value quilt. One where the blocks are arranged by color and value. To be honest this looked better on the wall than in the picture. This may have to wait until another time.
Somehow this is harder than I thought it would be.
We took the grandkids to the circus. Who enjoyed it more, the adults or the kids? A good time was had by all!
I am working on finishing a couple of things. First the quilt for my other daughter in law. This is the scrappy nine patch.
This picture turned out so nice I decided to show it again.
This is the quilt I made for my daughter in law's Relay for Life team. They are going to sell chances on it. I love the way this one turned out.
I spent Friday cleaning out more of my mothers stash. If you have ever wondered what will happen to all those projects you never finished stay tuned!
