Having looked back through my email order confirmations…. I ordered this quilt kit back in November of 2016. Its just 36 blocks, so it really shouldn’t take nearly 36 months but… that’s how time goes I guess, I did get my blocks finished and assembled so now its just a border and backing.
On the plus side it was bought to learn paper piecing and well I can say I have learned how and its not my favorite. Though some of that may be due to choices I made. For example, you can buy lighter specialty papers for copying your blocks. I just used a copy machine and ye ole standard A4 letter size. My main issue though is it feels wasteful. The quantity and size of scraps using this technique seems large and then there is all the paper. Which at least I can recycle the paper once I get it all off, which is my next project step.
For fun… here’s the backside with the papers and the original design layout the quilt came with. I inverted the light and dark sides to come up with my layout.
In other news Sock Madness has been a bit rocky going this year. In Round Two I made a rather major mistake in chart reading and though I did manage to squeak into Round Three there was much family related travel and so I was out. Now its just knitting for the fun of it. I’m half finished with my next pair and its the start of the yarn tour so… signs are pointing towards more yarn in the near future. But I really DO need to finish a few of these quilts!
