Work In Progress – Quilt 2

Another quilt I’ve been working on comes from a QAL I participated in with Fresh Lemon Quilts, http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?p=3149.

I chose to do this QAL, because paper piecing is not my strength, and this one is much easier, than my first paper piecing project. It still is a great challenge for me. There are only two pieces to sew per quarter block, as opposed to several,which was my first introduction to paper piecing a few years ago. 

I highly recommend if you are new to paper piecing, plan a paper piecing project with a small amount of paper pieces first, such as this one. 
Then challenge yourself with more intricate paper piecing projects.

I rearranged the given color pattern from the QAL to this one:



 

My points on my blocks, (see below), came out really well, and I am very happy about that. The photos are not giving the light colored fabric justice.   It is a very light beige, with a tiny pattern in it. In one of the lower purple blocks, (see above), I plan to add a little unexpected surprise. I can’t wait to see how the quilt top comes out. I am hoping it will be finished by the weekend of February 15. Stay tuned….

Happy Quilting!! In Ossining so far we have at least 10″ of snow, and it’s still coming. For those of you who are having a big snowstorm today. Stay safe.
