Catching Up On March

Well I’m getting there. Here is my finished March block for the Sugar Block Club. I like it. I was waiting for a block to showcase that bear print! I think it will blend well with my other blocks. Apparently there is a storm on its way here. We’ll see what becomes of it. I’m not holding my breath for a snow day, but it sure would be nice!
One more block to get caught up. That one is paper piecing, which I have grown to love but seem to take a bit longer to put together. Ill keep you posted.

Happy Crafting!

Getting Ready For Paper Piecing

20130201-201924.jpg

Tonight I’m busy cutting out the template for my sugar block club tomorrow. We will be paper piecing and making a North Star block. Have any of you ever made this block? I am looking forward to it. This will be my inaugural attempt at paper piecing. It looks pretty easy to get the hang of.
I’ve seen a lot of complaints lately while I was researching info on paper piecing. A lot of people think its wasteful both with paper and fabric. This block’s instructions came with cutting info too. I believe that this is to limit waste. As far as the paper is concerned, I don’t mind using some paper to make a beautiful block or a few.
I have no idea which fabrics I’m going to use but it will be gorgeous no doubt. I’ll take more pics tomorrow so check back to see my progress. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hugs,
E

“Snow Blossom” January Block

I’ve done it! I finished my first block of the Sugar Block Club. I love it and I had a great time making it with the club creator, Amy, at Fancy Tiger Crafts this afternoon. I decided to go with my bloggers choice fat quarter bundle from Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson blog fame. The bundle is from The Fat Quarter Shop and I just love all of the colors. I did add two of my own solids, the dark gray and the ashy white.

I struggled with choosing which fabrics to use on this block, but I am super happy with how it turned out. Can’t wait until next months block and class. I hope you all are having a great weekend, and for all you Downton Abbey fans out there…one more day!!!!!
