I stayed up late last night finishing up my paper piecing project for quilt guild. This is the first time I've done a paper piecing project and I love it! I can definitely see more paper piecing in my future. My poor little shamrock has one leaf that doesn't quite belong. That's the leaf I pieced at quilt guild with scraps they had available. It adds character, right?
My plan last night was to sew the block, and then turn it into something. Perhaps a hot pad. Or small table runner. Maybe even a little pillow. This block is small, measuring roughly 5 1/2" by 5 1/2". However, just as I was finishing, my machine started having tension problems. Hopefully I can get it worked out without having to take it in. I hate being with out my sewing machine!
