Travellin’ Pic-Stitch Blog Hop

I was so excited to be asked to participate as part of the Travellin’ Pic-Stitch Blog Hop! I am a beginner at English Paper Piecing; all I have done previously are some paper-pieced hexagons. But I am so very interested in learning more!!

My block (which is still a work in progress) was made using Katy‘s fab-u-lous Spring Carnival quilt pattern. I went on a few flights last month, and somehow this is all I got finished (??). I have tons left to do.

I made the palette for my block using Palette Builder. I was supposed to take a vacation photo, but we haven’t gone anywhere this year (except for me), so I took this great photo of my kids at the playground:

I pulled some of the fabrics from my Good Folks stash (which, incidentally, is just about gone). I can’t think of what I used it on.
I really enjoy making these rings, they are very relaxing and also very easy to do thanks to the templates I got from Paper Pieces. These were also pieced using Aurifil Thread. It’s great to be able to sit on the coach and watch a show while I sew (as opposed to when I am working on my machine, and am only able to half-listen).

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out tomorrow’s post over on Better Off Thread!

  1. Love the leaf blanket pic :)
    Your block is looking good. Do you have any plans for it yet for when it’s finished or is it a wait and see what it wants to be?

  2. You did a great job! It is so addictive and portable – hope you enjoyed it! I did a little on the last flight home to keep me from going crazy. (Was at the 32 hours awake point by then). Advantage of handsewing on a plane is you have a sharp weapon you can ‘accidentally’ jab ppl with if they start say painting their nails next to you!

Comments make my day and I love to reply!
