Paper Piecing Progress




  After many hours of sewing (and ripping), I finally finished up this month's block for the Sew Kitschy series of paper piecing with Kristy over at Quiet Play.  With each month, the pieces are getting smaller and the assembly is getting tougher.  I am so glad there is only one block a month!





I have been taping them up on my sewing room wall as I complete them.  Only three more left.
Woo Hoo!






 
...and I finished up a second block using the Basketweave Star pattern by The ADD Crafter.  I have now started a third star in purples.  Not sure what the final layout will be but I am toying with the idea of setting them on point or using them as a border for a center medallion.  I am just letting this one evolve as I go!

These blocks are intimidating to me, so I love to see when other people sew them. I love the background fabric you used this month.

I love the basket weave blocks - great color gradation! The Sew Kitschy group seems intimidating, and I love how your blocks are coming together.

I LOVE the jewel-toned fabrics in your basket weave star blocks!! They just GLOW! I've gone to Craftsy and downloaded the pattern just now too! You have the patience of a saint and the perseverance of a marathon runner to do those paper-pieced blocks!! The quilt will be so terrific. Well, they both will.

all of your blocks look amazing together. Great colors! I've still never tried paper piecing. I keep saying that I'm going to take the plunge one day!

Thank you so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!

Your Kitschy blocks look wonderful together on the wall! I had to rip a couple times this month too, perhaps I will have it down before the final block:-)

Your Sew Kitschy blocks look fabulous! Taping them up on the wall is a good idea to remember which fabrics you've used.
