Quilt Blocks

October 16, 2016

Sometimes I look at my blocks and wonder.  “What was I thinking?”  Last winter I joined The Splendid Sampler.  Twice a week for fifty weeks I receive an email with instructions for a six-inch block.  I could not decide on a single group of fat quarters, so, instead of two blocks a week, I am making four.  “They’re only six inches.”  Silly me.

I have since learned that I really, really, really do not like paper piecing.  It seems such a waste of time and effort and paper.  Some I turned into applique.  It’s so much more fun.  Some I skipped.  And some I thought about enough to cut the shapes and then just sewed them together to fit.

This is Don.

019  He is a Labrador/Springer mix.  I was rather surprised when I searched the two breeds how much he favors Springer Spaniel rather than Labrador.
