Way back when I first started quilting I tried my hand a few paper pieced blocks. They were all Christmas themed and I had hopes of turning them into a quilt. Well, that never happened. I still have them around, not too far from my reach.
In the meantime, Kristy of Quiet Play has been trying her hand at making some sweet paper pieced blocks. A little while ago she posted a really darling bird that she had made from her own pattern and I was immediately smitten.
My interest in paper piecing has been rekindled, and Kristy was kind enough to gift me with the bird pattern.
So, today I brushed up on the basics of what to do, and I made my own sweet little bird from Kristy's pattern. It didn't turn out perfectly, but that was me, not cutting my fabric pieces correctly. I'm sure I'll do better next time!
Thanks again, Kristy!
