I'm very into paper piecing right now! I discovered it in early June while looking for a helicopter pattern. I wasn't able to find what I was looking for, but I found an airplane paper piecing pattern. I called my mom and asked her to explain paper piecing over the phone and that night I started, within 3 days everything, but the quilting was done. I have decided to hand-quilt it, but since it has been so hot I put it away until the fall. I'm making it for our future son (we are planning to adopt as soon as our homestudy is complete and we find a mother looking to make an adoption plan), just in case the baby is a girl I'm also going to make a butterfly quilt (we will be thrilled with a boy or a girl, but since we have two girls, it would be nice to have a little boy). I had so much fun making the airplanes that I started looking for other paper piecing patterns. The next one I started was "Garden Patch", which is so much fun!!!! I can't wait to finish it!!!! Lack of fabric has been my problem. The sample quilt they show looks amazing, so I'm trying to make it similar....not exact or even close, but similar. Like each plant uses different greens, and different browns....so coming up with that many greens and that many browns has been hard. Brown is my struggle right now. Since I need so little I don't want to go and buy, so I'm hoping to find some in my mom's stash. Just need to find the time to go and dig through it all! In the meantime I'm working on another Table Topper that I'm giving as an anniversary gift to my hubby's aunt this upcoming Saturday.
Hope everyone is having a great night!
