Happy Hedgehog

Its fun to learn new things.  Hit some goals.  Try something that you have been eyeing and admiring forever!  Since my latest kick is paper piecing.  The diamonds were a breeze! Easy and a great pattern to get your 'feet wet' in the paper piecing world.

This past Saturday was a class on paper piecing at our Guild.  Music City Modern Quilt Guild.  Perfect timing for me!  If you are in the Nashville area...come to a meeting!  We would love to have you!  It was a fun class and I did learn a thing or two!

I first saw this little Hedgehog on Flickr.  Cute as can be.  I didn't actually think I could ever make something like that...but I can!  And I did!  



He's a small little guy!  He tested my skills and patience!  I look at him and smile.  He still needs to see, so an eye will be coming soon.  Isn't he a cutie?!



Talk about lots of pieces...and tiny too!  I will admit, I winged it on piecing the sections together. I only had to redo one section.  I should have searched for instructions and not just a pattern!  Next time!  I'm happy how he turned out!

Isn't it nice to cross something off your 'wanna try one day when I have nothing else to do' list?!

Now...what to do with it!

  5. How adorable... and impressive. I attempted paper piecing something the other day. It was a complete disaster. Can you recommend any good tutorials on the process?

  13. I was admiring that little hedgehog design, too! But made a bee block for my first (and only) attempt at PP. He sure is a cutie! Maybe a little pillow? or frame him without quilting behind glass?
