But one that has to be shown in “sneaky peeks” for now! Why?, you may ask. Well, the cute little projects will be wending their way to distant homes soon (via USPS, hence the word “wending”!!!!!!). Hmmmmm….yes, they’re paper pieced! And, as you may or may not remember, paper piecing (for some obscure reason) presents assembly challenges for me. Ummmm, guess the challenge is counting (1,2,3) so that the pieces/fabrics are added in the correct order. A project from 2015 presented some issues to me. If you look at that yellow egg (below)….. there’s a sliver of yellow (top, just left of the ribbon) that was piece #2 in that left-hand section. I was not paying attention, so I pieced in a background fabric and didn’t notice it until the section was DONE!!! Ripping back is not done easily. Re-doing the section with fresh paper, etc, was the option I went for……..lesson learned, not to be repeated in the near future(?).
So, it’s on to some quilting on the secrets.
