These blocks are so pretty! I love seeing all the different color combinations we're coming up with! I am continuing with my beach theme... so here's my Arkansas!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Okay, I think I am going to like paper piecing! I have made 1/4th of my Delaware star. I noticed that somehow I managed to nick off the edge of a piece though. Can't figure how I did that, but it is a straight cut across. I am thinking that it might be within the 1/4 inch though, so that that section is salvageable by the time I join the pieces together for the whole block? If not, I do have a few ideas floating around as to how to fix it (that do not involve taking apart the block). I am using scraps of fabric, so do not have enough to redo it, and I have all of the pieces cut for the rest of the block, so would like to salvage if I can. I have attached a picture (paper is curling a bit, it is rainy here - which is why the one piece looks wonky/curling).
Piecing, then quilting, with the North Wind blowing,
The days go by quickly when I am sewing.
Thanks for the info regarding the book everyone. I confess to being a bookaholic and would also like to see the full block and block x 4 without cut and pasting it up on my computer or waiting for pics to be posted.
Might have to browse my on-line book shop.
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
