Paper piecing


I'm sewing with the "church ladies" tomorrow.
:)
Here's the sample block.
We'll be making a few quilts for High school graduates.
We do it EVERY year!

The block is simple.
Perfect for the newbie sewer.
8" square of phone book paper.

One square 2 1/2" or so placed in the corner.
I place mine slightly OFF the paper....
Just IN CASE it shifts in and doesn't cover the paper.
 

LOTS of strips of fabric.
LOTS of scraps....
added Half LOG cabin STYLE.
:)
 
I'm looking forward to a GREAT morning!!!

In OTHER  news....
One thing led to ANOTHER
and I found myself making another KNITTED cap this week.
 
I had the yarn.
My son has winter camp this weekend.
It HAD to be done!!!!
I finished it 1 hour before the kids left.
Whew!!!!
 
Things I learned while making my SECOND knitted project.
*using variegated yarn is helpful to the NEW knitter.
you can easily see the rows of stitches and figure out WHERE you ARE!
*Adult sized caps take quite a bit LONGER than baby caps.
*GOOD quality needles are SOoooo much better than the cheap ones.
They say.... QUALITY is the BEST value.
It's certainly true about knitting needles.
;)
 
Have a GREAT weekend!
