Despite not really having time, when Lynne at Lily's quilts started Big Little George, a tutorial for paper pieceing, I thought I'd have a go as it's something I've never tried before. As I said in a previous post, I had a few problems with it early on, and unfortunately, it never got much better! I think I must have some problem with spacial awareness, or maybe a block between the left side of the brain and the right, but if I stitched one together back to front, I must've done it 10 times. Then of course there were the pieces of fabric I cut too small, and I very nearly cut through the paper or the previous piece of fabric whilst trying to trim every thing. My little stitch ripper was smoking! I eventually got my act together and stopped flapping and actually it's turned out OK.
Let's hope all those pointy bits and seams line up when I sew it all together.
Thanks Lynne for the tutorial - I'm just not sure paper pieceng is the right thing for my one dimensional brain!
Right - I'm off out into the garden for the weekend. I shall be staining fence panels for the new fence, sewing and planting in the veggie patch, and re-planting our retaining walls with all the plants I took out 3 weeks ago! Then I shall be collapsing with a glass of wine.
Have a nice Easter everyone
