Hi Friends, I've had a lot of catch up to do!
I finished the block for Emily a few days ago. I never thought paper piecing could be fun, but this block was! I really enjoyed putting it together. And I loved the navy blue fabrics. Emily's finished quilt is going to be amazing.
I finished my string block for Amy before December. But I didn't get it in the mail and then December hit... and I was busy making cookies, cookies and more cookies for my family business.
I really loved making this string block and I'm sure I'll make a whole quilt sometime in the future.
And last but not least, I finished the block for April, also before December.
This was the most challenging block so far for me. I think I'm too frugal to be really good at paper piecing. And I stressed about the seams matching up... and which way to press them (I mostly pressed them open to reduce the bulk).
But I am so glad I had the opportunity to make this gorgeous block. I learned so much making it, which is the very reason I was excited to join this bee. Thank you April for challenging me! It's a truly stunning block... and one I would repeat making... if just for a pillow maybe.
Promise honest, I'm off to the post office today!
