|Jonah ready to go to Mother's Day Out - Notice stick in hand!|
One of the first things I wanted to do when we got home was to get caught up on my Civil War blocks. So I finished up the last 3 blocks.
Below are some paper piecing that I worked on in the camper while we were gone. This is a perfect "Camper project" because I just need a bag of scraps and can cut pieces as I go. I have 5 1/2 of these circular blocks all paper pieced now, so soon I need to start sewing them together. I blogged about these a while ago here. I've never pieced curves before, so that will be a new challenge for me.
I joined the Free Motion Quilting Challenge led by Thread Head. Here is my first try at feathers. Kind of wonky! The idea is to practice for 15 minutes every day for 2 weeks, because practice makes perfect. We will see. Hee Hee! I am hoping to quilt feathers on the border of my basket quilt, so that gives me good motivation.
