For this Friday's Sew and Tell, I'm posting a picture of a block. Several of which I've finshed. I timed these bad boys out and they take me 1 hour each. Do not assume that paper piecing means faster piecing. :) The pattern called for 16 for a wall hanging and I've got those done but I have more than that to do for a king size bed. I am posting this as a finish b/c I broke these out into mini-goals and I've met one. The block is awesome, though, isn't it? I can't wait until I can show you them all together.
Oh, and a nod to last week, I did add a border. I was feeling "country-ish" given our new home is in farm country so instead of a dark brown border which could have made this top look a little more contemporary, I busted out some fabric from the stash and went more subdued and country to me. My DD doesn't like it but I find it has some sort of appeal. It's not a normal style for me but as soon as I put the border on, I also knew that quilting this one would be simple straight lines and cross hatching.
There you have it. For more refined projects and finsihsed this week, hop over to AmyLouWho's Friday Sew & Tell with the linky to the right.
