My eyes hurt this morning! Could be from all the sewing I did last night after dinner!
Don't look too closely, but I'm pretty proud of this paper pieced block. It's the May Threads of Memory block. Thanks to Rachael, another quilter who is also doing these blocks, who sent me her paper piece pattern. Here's a link to Rachael's block.
This is the second block I paper pieced for the Threads of Memory BOM. Not sure I would choose to do this all the time, but it was kind of fun - once I got the hang of it!
Here's a look at all of my Threads of Memory blocks so far.
Finally I got this block finished! I did the blanket stitching on the stem, leaves and star during the week. All of my hsts were made, I just needed to lay them out correctly and sew them together, then attach them to the block.
Happy to have both of these done and checked off my list of works in progress for me!
Here's a link to the Threads of Memory flickr pool.
I'm also linking up to Vicki of Field Trips in Fibre HSTeria Quilt along post. It was finding out about this fun project that got me to get my Halloween 1904 blocks out again and start sewing my HSTs again!
With a Flourish of Joy,
