Today is Thursday!! That means we are doing an applique or paper piecing block!
I'm super excited to tell you that I've conquered my first paper piecing block!!!
I had a friend give me a couple of books that she had in her house …serendipity for me, for sure!
I grabbed this one and determined I was going to learn how to do this!
And I did!!!!
I did Cindi's block!
I did have to do an extra quarter panel because I didn't rip out a piece when I didn't fit…I didn't even notice it didn't fit until the whole block was done!! Slow down, sister!!! LOL!!!
But it's okay…another mug rug is always appreciated!! (or a little pin cushion with a button on the issue!! lemonade, people, lemonade!! LOL!!)
My only other issue (because only Jesus is perfect!!!) was that I ran out of white background fabric. So I used solid white (Kona Snow) instead. Made you look, didn't I??
I love this pattern with these fabics!!!
And thanks to my IG buddies for helping me keep on keepin' on when I thought it was a bit too busy!!
If you haven't tried paper piecing yet, do it! It's worth it. Those corners and points that are so beautiful…ohhhh…worth it!!!
