It is paper pieced.
I'm in AWE of you quilters who make
WHOLE quilts using these
perfectly pieced blocks!!!

I will say making this block
and also made me want to TRY to MAKE one of those
I CAN make ONE block......
but a whole bunch???
I'm with you there Beth. They are amazing. Cute block!ReplyDelete
It is a cute block... Beware! My hubs and I just finished pulling the paper off of an I Spy for our grandson to be... Took us 3 evenings to do the 6 rows that were left to do this time. (I was having so much trouble with it I put it away for 2 years.) I have a couple of blocks to fix, and paper pieced - that ain't easy after the fact. Whole quilt, okay, but that paper removal is why the quilt takes almost twice the time.ReplyDelete
I do love a challenge :0)ReplyDelete
Yep I'm one of those!
Lovely block, who knew turning 50 could be so much fun?
I look forward to seeing Lori's quilt completed. do you think she'll
have it done while she is still 50?
I don't think I have a quilts worth of patients for this block. I admire anyone who does! :)ReplyDelete
I would never have the patience to do a whole quilt in blocks that size! It would end up as UFO or a wall hanging!ReplyDelete
I love the accuracy of the paper piecing. The colors are wonderful too.ReplyDelete
I do love the way small blocks look, but I think I love how quickly big blocks make a quilt even more!ReplyDelete
Try it..you'll like it. I made a queen size lover's knot for my daughter's wedding quilt. It had something like 1,400 pieces and I remember thinking..what were you thinking! But it turned out spectacular.ReplyDelete
