Taking a Break from the Cruise Posts!
Above is the block I made. It is very tiny--about 3". One of the huge advantages of paper piecing is that one can make small blocks that are precise and accurate. I plan to make 11 other of these tiny blocks, using this color scheme (the same color scheme of a king sized bed quilt that I am working on). I plan to use for this wall hanging scraps from the Anniversary Quilt that Patty and I made last fall, as well as some of the same fabrics that are going into the bed quilt.
Another project: A couple of days ago I made two fabric postcards, to send to a dear friend as a belated birthday greeting. I now have a postcard stamp for the address and message side of the postcard; I love it! I just heard from my friend to whom these cards were addressed. Friend, you mentioned receiving ONE. You ought to have gotten two; let me know!
