It's been so long since I posted WIP Wednesday! (June 21 was my last post). I had lots of work but no progress... (ha ha)
At long last I finished the Pretty in Pink quilt. I'm very happy with the result. All I need is to applique baby G.'s name on the back.
I'm working now on a new baby quilt, for baby E., my 3 weeks old lovely grandson. No more pink for now, back to blue/green/yellow and the rest of the color wheel. BTW, who says pink is for girls only? What do think? Would you make a pink quilt for a boy, or dress him in pink?
Enough with gender sociology. I'm trying something new - paper piecing. I'm working with a pattern from Glorious Patchwork by Kaffe Fasset the quilt on the cover. Somehow the instruction are for paper piecing, and I decided to try and master this technique with the help of my great teacher Margot. Well, I discovered I really don't like it. So time consuming! Maybe it's good for other shapes like points and curves, but for this log cabin I'd rather use simple piecing. Do you have a more positive experience with PP? I'd love to hear.
This is the first block I finished. It took me more than 3 hours! At this rate I'll finish this quilt when baby E. will be in school. I don't even like this block, I think the yellow at the end is not great. Well, hope to show some serious progress next week, paper piecing or not.
I'm linking with Lee from Freshly Pieced, who hosts this lovely event week after week. Thank you Lee!
