This morning was the first meeting of 2016 for the London Modern Quilt Guild. After a very brief business meeting, Kristin led us in a paper piecing workshop to make these pincushions. This dark gray one is the sample that Kristin made to show us. She had made up kits for each of us to use, trying to fool herself into thinking that she was reducing her stash...
I sorted out my pieces of fabric from light to dark in colour families.
This is the first of 4 sections.
I managed to finish 2 sections before the end of the meeting.
Tonight, I made the last 2 sections and sewed them together. It finishes at 4.5" square. This looks so cool!!! (There are 18 pieces in each section of this project!)
This weekend's handwork project is removing all of those little pieces of paper!
A couple of years ago, I received these tweezers with a magnifying glass attached. They are for removing small pieces of paper when paper piecing. They are perfect for this job!
I hope to finish this pincushion sometime this week.
We had warm weather today... and some rain. There is no snow. Very weird weather for this time of year.
I am linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. Once I get all that paper removed, maybe I will have time to do some hand quilting on my wool applique squirrel project...
