Description

Decided to take the plunge...it's a first for both - BOM and paper piecing. I have followed the Don't Call Me Betsy blog for about a year now and love everything Elizabeth Dackson does. Her BOM is just perfect. I think I am going to like paper piecing (although I have only done it this once!) I get very frustrated with my blocks/piecing not matching up exactly. I think this method eliminates SOME of that. If you look at the photo...I still have some mismatching going on! I am going to use fabrics from the moda Bonnie & Camille - Ruby and Vintage Modern lines.
*January Block complete...didn't go as smoothly as the practice block. I think I used too many different fabrics! Oh, well - I have plenty of time to do another:)
*Finished February block today... glad I got it done before the end of the month! Trying hard to not get behind!!  
*March 18th - Finished the March block this morning...for whatever reason, I had the hardest time getting everything to match up. Hopefully, when quilted - you wont be able to notice. 
*April 5th - Finished a 6 inch April block...added border to make it 12 1/2 inches. If I have time this weekend, i'll do the bigger block too. I think I like this one best so far!

wow, all these blocks are just beautiful, I also joined my first bee and learned to paper piece this month. I just love the paper piecing process and will be doing more in the future. When I see "stars" like yours, makes we want to run to my sewing room and get started. Looking forward to seeing more blocks in the future.

Well it sure looks pretty from here!

These blocks are terrific. They are so retro, both pattern and fabrics...but all in an updated way. Nice effect.

Love April!! Your fabric choices are perfect for it.

wow...love these!! I think April is my favorite, tho honestly I love them all! Using mostly white in 8 of the triangles makes it pop!!!
