When I used to do a lot of paper crafting I had a blog called Paper Piecing, so I found it really funny to find that there was a quilting version too!
This is my first attempt at paper piecing quilt-stylie. I bought a pattern from Piece by Numbers on Etsy last year, but it is only this week that I got up the courage to try it. I am rather please by the results although, as you can see below - it isn't perfect! Those little pink threads are actually the raw edge showing (gasp!). I am hoping to catch them under the linen with a couple of hand stitches.
The coloured fabrics are Simply Colour by V&Co. (I'm not sponsored or anything - I just really like it!) When I made my Coventry wall hanging I used part of one strip from a junior jelly roll and this was made with the remainder of those strips. I still have 2 whole strips of each colour, so expect plenty more projects with this! I started with the light pink and dark aubergine in the centre and went out to dark pink and light aubergine. The solid is my favourite Essex Linen in natural.
Now all I have to do is decide what to make with it, I'm leaning towards a cushion but it is a bit small at the moment.
I also want to show you 2 pictures of Big D and Little D. DS2 decided that what his Daddy would really like for Fathers' Day was a t-shirt with a picture of them both doing archery (my husband's hobby). We took the photos and then printed them off on photo transfer paper with a BEST DAD message. Ironed on a white t-shirt and all done.
DH proudly wore the t-shirt all day! (Oh and the weird stuff behind DS2 is a homemade tardis console - obviously!)
