Hello there! I know, it has been a while. I think it is just the lovely spring weather that makes it tough to do anything indoors. I have been sewing a bit, mostly for swaps and things that I can't show quite yet.
Have you seen the New York Beauty Quilt along? I felt like after Curves Camp I had to give this a try. Plus, I love foundation paper piecing and have not used this method in quite a while. This is a mini quilt made entirely of scraps from Block 0, tutorial here.
This is the most basic block, and I have to say, this left me wanting to try some more. I was so careful with my corner pieces after my experience last time, and they went together perfectly this time. I was hoping I could get 4 out of my scrap of Kona Ash, but I ended up having to use a piece of pink Kona for the 4th. The one problem I had with this quilt was that I didn't do such a careful job of piecing the center circle, in Hometown News from Sweetwater. I decided to just trim the blocks instead of getting out the seam ripper. While that is totally fine for a Drunkard's Path path block, I forgot how this would affect the points that radiate out from the center. So, things are a bit off, and now I know. Lesson learned.
I tried hand quilting and loved that too. It does make for a really soft quilt. The next quilt I finish is going to be hand quilted!
Although I didn't plan it, I can link up to Rachel's Scrap Attack! I am still hoping to make a quilt top from these blocks, but I am running out of time!
I have to share one photo from my garden. I finally have a few alliums and they are spectacular! I love how it is made up of hundreds of tiny purple flowers.
