Welcome to my Show and Tell edition. I haven't made all 9 blocks featured during this BoM and let's face it if I haven't done it till now I probably won't do it any time soon. I have the scissor block printed and prepared but that's about it.
My first paper pieced block ever. I didn't know anything about paper piecing when I started. I didn't cut the seam allowances so it ended pretty messy on the back side. I wasn't happy about my fabric choice either and I got totally different idea later on. I knew from the very beginning that I won't have space for wall hanging consisting of all nine block so I decided I'll cover up my bookshelf which I use for storing fabrics and other stuff. I wanted to work with rainbow colors and create the blocks monochromatic. As you can see I got the orange and pink. I worked with some selvages in those blocks so I added some to create this shelf cover. I also had to add a bit of red to have the colors in right order. Yeah, I'm a bit color order obsessed.
Even though I don't like the other side too much I wanted to try out double sided cover. I had some eyelets on hand which I never used so I tested them as well. According to the handy man in the house I put them the other way round but that's fine with me. It works!
Here's the "before" photo. Not too bad and not too messy as I don't reach up there without a chair so I wasn't able to pile up things. I won't show you the rest of this bookshelf. Maybe one day if I cover it up or finally clean up. We'll see.
Paper piecing technique might not be my favorite one but I'm glad I gave it go. I'm pretty happy about the outcome plus I definitely learned something new. Thank you Kristy for sharing your passion with us!
I'm a bit late but I'm linking up to TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts as well. Plus
