Spring Chick, anyone?

This is a block that was designed by Janeen, over at Quiltartblogspot.com.

I have never really been a fan of paper piecing. This year I felt

like sewing  something different so this is filling that niche.

I am surprised at how  long it took to create this cute little bird.

Janeen needed some help creating some of the blocks she has

designed for an upcoming magazine article. She publishes a

magazine called qadpublishingblogspot.com.

This little spring chick is for the March/April edition.

The pattern can be bought on her Craftsy store.

This is a quilt that Laurie created for a friend of hers. It is so

neat to see how a simple pattern can really make a nice design

and quilt.

Here is a closer view of the individual block itself. It consists of

4 squares that are cut up and randomly moved around. Each square

has the same layout but the different fabrics will take a different

spot ineach of the blocks.

The fabric itself is pretty rich looking as well. Carol decided

that she wanted a fairly simple panto on the quilt top. She chose

“Celtic Braid.”  The thread used was a  white polyester thread,

used on the top and the backing.

I really like the medallion in the middle of this square. It

would make a nice motif for sititching. I know, I have

issues.

Here is the backing. It is a white color and shows the quilting

beautifully.

Here is a teaser for you for next week. Linda

created this amazing BOM quilt at a local Quilt Shop

in the area, Country Concessions. Next week, I will give

you some more pictures of it. It is now finished and

done.  Stay warm.

      HI,
      Paper piecing is a bit of work too but it is fun. It reminds me of doing a puzzle. YOu make all the little pieces as fast as you can so you can see what the entire piece
      will look like when you finish it.
