The Cleanest Cat of All?
Over the past year, thanks to a Guild mate or two, I've become somewhat more comfortable with the technique, but only somewhat.
The twenty blocks from Project 48 that I've been calling "word salad" are all finished and most of them are latticed. Before latticing the top row, I thought it was time to piece the letters to make the name of the quilt at the top. I don't know why I feel compelled to do this, but I have to do it.
It takes me about a half of a day to get back into my paper-piecing groove when I start up again. So here I am on day three, with five false starts leading to five discarded letter parts, with four letters finished and five to go. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go and print out yet another copy of the patterns for "d" and "r."
See you on the other side . . . .
