A year ago ("really?") Lori at Humble Quilts had a Quilt-A-Long - "Faithful." I finished the top, but wanted to do something else. For the last year ("really?") it has been on my design wall or somewhere in view while I tried to figure out how to do what I wanted. My center block was on point, so it didn't look good sitting sideways and I needed to make corners so it would be upright.
Here is my first corner.
I made a freezer paper template and drew lines to sew it on using the paper piecing method.
When JoAnn at Canuck Quilts tutorial appeared, it seemed like it would work easily. You can see her tutorial here. Her instructions are extremely clear and this was a pretty simple PP project, so I followed her method.
It's real easy to remove the paper since it isn't actually sewn down!
Here is how my "Faithful" quilt is going to look - sort of. I haven't sewn it together yet. I plan to appliqué some wool flowers on each corner and want to do that before sewing the corners on the square. I will also sew something in the open space of the basket. I'm browsing through books now looking for appropriate flowers.
I have also been working on the quilting for "Over the River and Through the Woods."
