Round Again...

With pink...

I love these Soul Blossom pinks with Kaffes shot cotton pinks.


Paper piecing this quilt is so relaxing, there is something truly wonderful about sitting down with needle, thread and a gorgeous fabric in hand.


I love the back of this one, I take out the papers as I go only leaving the edge papers in...


The next round is already decided, it will be blue...


It may take a while, I now have 72 diamonds to cut out, baste, stitch together in pairs and threes, then attach to the quilt. That should keep me out of trouble!!! xo

Very very pretty, you have a lot of patience! There is something very satisfiying about handwork...you can never go too fast, it makes you enjoy the process.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I'm excited to see the blue! I see you trim your fabric so neatly. I just do it haphazardly then tidy up after I'm done. I guess it's the erica way. :D

Wonderful! Thanks for showing your beautiful work. Paper piecing is so relaxing. I'm currently working on a hexagon pp diamond quilt. It's so much fun.

Lovely pattern, Cathy! It would be a challenge to me to find out if I can piece this one with the Marti Templates... :-)
Beautiful fabrics as well.
And good news: Material Obsession shop is going to sell te Quiltmania magazine, it has a quilt from me on a regular base...so even if I can't come to Australia, my quilts will!
Take care,M
