So much applique
|Just a pretty picture. :) (Papa's camera)|
This has been a week of experiments for me--I did my first real, honest to goodness applique (on two separate blocks!), I pulled out my grandfather's beautiful Olympus camera to see how it worked for quilt pictures, fell in love with that, and learned to do paper piecing.
|All of the blocks from the first group. (Papa's camera)|
|Focus on the right. (Papa's camera)|
|Big square block.|
In the interest of not letting this blog post drag on too much (I had so many nice pictures this week!), I'll just throw a few process pictures at you to wrap things up. I think if I have this many again by Wednesday I'll just do two blog posts. Won't that be exciting!
|I tried my best to line things up from the beginning.|
|Look at those pretty little stiches. :)|
|The applique in progress.|
|All done! A little rough around the edges, but not too shabby|
for a first try.
|I'm rather pleased with it, all things considered.|
|On to paper piecing!|
|This was particularly fun, I loved how accurate the seams turned out.|
|Lining things up...|
|Faith-Ann powers through the paper like a pro!|
|What lovely stitches.|
|Perfect seam. :)|
|The aftermath. -_-|
|The result! You can see the paper pieced block on the right.|
I'm going to go start dinner (yummy ziti), but I hope you enjoyed the blog and my latest offerings!
