Almost back from Sisters
One of the many quilts pictures I took. This was a series done by a local quilt guild--I liked them a lot.
And here is what I did. I took a paper piecing class with my sister--but I hate paper piecing so I figured out how to piece the quilt using strips of fabric. We called it the quilt that never ends. There are lots and lots of seams in each block--but I think it came out looking good. The original paper piecing blocks were 5 inches finished--these are 9--so I made a top instead of a wall hanging and I added a couple of rows to make it rectangular instead of square.
More when I get home. I'm flying home tonight and will arrive in Colorado just about midnight.
