With so many different social media venues these days, it sometimes overwhelms me. With every click I see something new I want to try. This makes my list grow and grow. And grow some more! I cannot possibly try everything I see, so when I finally get to something on my list...I am thrilled! I may be a little late to the party (fashionably late) and that's okay with me!
My project for yesterday was A Circle Of Geese paper piecing. Most likely you have seen it or tried it. The pattern is available from Piece By Number, and here is the pattern and tutorial for A Circle of Geese.
Not only will this be the first time making this, it is also the first project using low volume text prints! Woo Hoo! Like I said...I have a long list.
My first block. These blocks are 6" x 6".
Half a circle done!
I can see the end!
Four sections done!
This is the paper piecing template. For all who are hesitant to learn paper piecing, don't be! It really is a fun technique. I am by no means an expert. I am not hardcore. There are many patterns, tutorials and information everywhere. From easy to 'are you kidding me?' designs
I will admit I messed up on a couple pieces and had to redo them. Have you ever had to rip out something that was sewn with 1.0 stitching?! Frustrating! These tiny stitches are important for this next part...tearing off the paper!
Paper carnage! This is the fun part!
Finished block. Not a true color wheel, but it is pretty! I was sure I printed the templates the right size. I measured the red line after printing and it was 1". My finished block is 11 1/2" even though the template says the 12". Not a big deal for me.
I may add a funky border of some sort and make this in to a lovely little mini quilt. This is a project I hope to make again. It was fun! Having one more thing crossed of my list is always a good thing!
What is on your list that you want to make? Does your list keep getting longer and longer like mine does?
