Two things I've committed to have tied together rather well. My lovely person at AP&Q, Louise, has been having a hard time lately too, with her mum in and out of hospital. Louise asked me if I could make a block and we came up with the idea of getting 12 AP&Q contributors to each choose or design a block. Louise's mum is a TRADITIONAL quilter, which gave me pause and sent me rummaging to the bottom of my stash for some cream and floral prints. I committed to doing a non-traditional block from ChariseCreates.
Silly me forgot there are three methods of paper piecing.
1. English paper piecing.
2. foundation paper piecing.
3. Freezer paper piecing.
I'm comfortable with 1 and 2. Guess which method this block is? Yup, freezer paper.
I DO NOT LIKE IT SAM I AM I DO NOT LIKE GREEN EGGS AND FREEZER PAPER PIECING.Even though I blew it up a bit, I fluffed up a few times, as you can no doubt see. It's still a WIP as I want to embroider a needle and dial on it.
And I need to embroider eyes on this little fellow and make him into something. Kristy at QuietPlay is having a paper piecing bloghop. At this stage, I'm not even a little bit sure I'm going to make my spot - cross your fingers and toes for me please!
This pattern is from Artisania Designs, a site you MUST visit if you love paper piecing (foundation PP that is!). She has a few free designs as well as purchasable ones. The fox isn't free, but there's also a hedgehog in the works...
I keep thinking a final vet visit with Lainey is imminent, but then she perks up and gallops around. Sigh...
Happy WIP Wednesday!
