I completed my first paper-pieced project! Woot! Via Connecting Threads Incredible Tutorial, for the Fussy Square Swap on Flickr hosted by Amanda at What the Bobbin. This holiday swap has been inspiring, motivating! I printed the template out Amanda has up on Google docs, and attempted to figure it out with no tutorial, which ended in failure- twice. Then I checked out the video Amanda recommends, but I needed even more help- I've never done this before. I needed tips and advice for the very beginner. The Connecting Threads tutorial did the trick don't you think??
I'm doing the last bit of the iPernity Holiday Mug Rug Swap as well. The binding. The last bit of sewing on the binding trips me up a lot, wishing myself some luck. The binding will not get me down this time!
Well, the binding got me down a little...
My swoon quilt is on its way back to me from being quilted by Abby at Latimer Lane. She is based in Utah, which is where I was born, and a lot of my dad's family lives. I'm excited for the arrival of the quilt back into my home. I suppose I should be working on getting the binding ready, eh?? Must master binding. Must master binding. That sounds a little weird. You know what I mean though, I hope!
