January 29th

How fun that today I am featuring a smallish wall hanging (about 30" square) that has the same border as the one I showed yesterday.
This was a paper piecing sample I made for a class. I am really not a paper piecer at all, but I liked this method when I learned, about folding the paper instead of stitching through it and ripping it all off. So I taught it as a class and the students really enjoyed learning a different way.
I haven't done much paper piecing since, but if I want to, this is the way I'll go.

I spent some time again yesterday working on the mega strippy, scrappy extravaganza that has been on my small design wall for months! I think I will carve out about 6 hours tomorrow AND at least 4 on Sunday and pretend I am retreating and get the buggar done! Plus I made some decisions about a couple more orphan blocks and I'll proceed with those. My current redwork project is about half an hour from being finished so that will be done tonight while I watch Project Runway on my DVR. Feels good to be seeing progress.

Amazing how different a fabric looks in each quilt. Congrats on making progress.
