I don't like Porridge - Fact!

Just another useless piece of information about me.  It's true, I'd make a terrible Goldilocks......

I feel so lucky to be a part of a wonderful paper piecing bee, and this month's Queen is Gina over at Party of Eight.  Gina requested Fairytale themed blocks, and the lovely Kristy made up this divine pattern for The Three Bears.


I hadn't had much time since receiving the pattern days ago, due to a number of reasons including school holidays and having my two nieces as well as my four!  Busy busy!  But this afternoon I had a spare couple of hours and got cracking.  I am SUPER happy with the outcome, although I should have probably chosen something without stripes for the wallpaper!  I also had trouble finding a suitable "porridge" fabric.  I utilised some felt instead.  But my favourite part of all?  The lovely view out the windows.  Another good reason why you should NEVER throw away scraps!  It took me lots of brain power to work out how to get the clouds, trees and kite the right way up, but it worked.  Phew.

I'm linking up with Kristy's Paper Piecing Party, over at Quiet Play - You can too!

  4. You are a whiz!! I love this block for so many reasons!! I love the colors and the widow is my favorite too!! The kite and tree are perfect peeking through, and hello, clouds are my favorite!! ( I didn't see them on IG and what a fun surprise!) my quilt with the blocks you girls have made is going to be perfect!!

  5. So cute! I love the kite in the window...clever.

  6. Such a fun theme this month. Clever use of fussy cut kites and clouds and i do think the striped wallpaper works.
