30/30 Update - Day 22


Paper piecing for Tropical Whimsey Block #3

I missed one day of sewing for the 30/30 challenge this week, but I was able to sew for several hours a couple of days, so overall it was a good week. Once again I did bits of this and that each day.
  • Put labels and sleeves on stuff for the AQG Quilt show (which starts today!)
  • Put binding on the baby quilt
  • Hand sewed binding on Sam's Quilt
  • Worked on my paper piecing over several days and finished another circle
  • Picked out fabrics from my stash for the Sassy Quilter's Triangle Quilt Along

  1. Oh, Mary! Your star block is amazing! What goes in the center? Is it appliqued on top? Hope you have a wonderful time at the AGQ. Sounds like it will be sew much fun! Speaking of fun... Glad to hear you are joining in the Triangle Quilt Along!!!

    1. Thanks! The center of the block is a circle with a swirl in it that you applique over the raw edges. I have 48 different fabrics + the background going into these blocks, with 3 repeats of each fabric including in a center swirl, so I am waiting until I have all the blocks paper pieced and will then decide how to pair off the fabrics for swirls.

    1. Some are batiks, but not all, probably about 1/3 are batik and the rest are assorted other stuff I liked.
