A few months ago, I decided I would join in the Riley Blake Mystery Block of The Month. Yes, I've made a Pinterest board to store them! And now it's March! Today brought an unexpected day off work, due to another mystery - the tiles smashed off Chloe's creche's roof on Monday, for no apparent reason - so creche was closed today! Day off work = catching up on planned projects.
I started with February, as you do. It is a paper pieced heart. This set my heart racing. I have seen so many beautiful and amazing paper pieced projects, that I never thought I would be able to do it. But it seems I sort of can......
|Trying to wrap my head around how this all worked literally gave me a headache!|
|All pieced together - with a couple of added bits here and there due to - ahemmmm - someone stuffing up. Note to self - do not take the paper off the back until the end! Whoops!|
|All trimmed up! It's still not finished, as I have to work out how I am going to applique it on to the backing piece? I'm wondering if I should do it as I did the Dresden? Any suggestions would be welcomed!|
|I then moved on to January's block. Which entailed HST's. Remember when I said I would be happy to never see them again? Well, today reminded me why. I must say - the trimming was made much easier with that little square ruler there ^^^^^^|
|All laid out ready to put together!|
I'm using the Willow range by Riley Blake, which I bought from Pink Castle Fabrics last month. Once the nine blocks are made up, I think it will be beautiful!
So, that's what I'm working on at present. You?
