    Well I decided to start a paper piecing project. I'd seen so many lovely paper pieced blocks, etc, on here and other places that I wanted to try it for myself. Boy am I glad I did!

    The result is this wall hanging-to-be which I am very excited about and just a little proud of. ;) This marks my first paper piecing project, as well as my first border (but heck, that part was easy). Anyway, I know the flower is slightly off centered on its stem, but I really don't care. It's either my artistic signature or my lovably flawed child. Either way, I'm happy. :)

    Now to back, bat, and quilt! Any suggestions for how I should quilt this baby?

    How about some sun rays in the top part and echo quilting in the lower part?

    You did a great job for your first piece! :thumbup:

    I know the feeling!! There are so many wonderful things I can't wait to try...I just need to make sure I sit down and finish all these things I've started!

    Great first-time project.

    On to the quilting...

    Option 1 :arrow: Tight meandering on the white background to make the flower pop

    Option 2 :arrow: Echo quilting on the white background to make the flower pop

    Option 3 :arrow: One-way diagonal lines across the entire front using a fairly large stitch to imitate rain

    No matter what you choose, I am sure it will be really cute.
