I am getting more comfortable with paper foundation piecing :-) I have found that choosing fabrics I do not have much of makes it a bit more challenging - um, 10" squares from layer cakes!
The colors I used were inspired by the S & P shakers we kept in our camping box as a kid. Assuming you did not have a set in your camping box, I found a pic to share:
I also whipped up this Mother's Day Block over the weekend. It is part of a monthly block tutorial series - each month is hosted by a different blogger. Designed by Amy at Stitchery Dickory Dock, I love the color selection and placement, so I kept mine very similar to hers. I shared it with the Aurifil Thread Flickr Group for a chance to win a big box of Aurifil Thread! I found the pattern HERE.
I also wanted to share my Hello Moon flimsy today, but it is still on my design wall:
I just finished the block on the lower-right as well. It will be a pillow, a Christmas gift:-)
