Happy Saturday all. I hope you week-end is going well.
I’m beyond excited to share with you my first experience with the one technique in quilting that I was lacking and that, honestly, scared me to little pieces… (get it, pieces???).
I’ve had quite a few people try to explain it to me, I’ve gone online trying to find tutorials that were clear, and I was having issues. The fact that I couldn’t grasp the basic concept of it was making me feel like an idiot and I was getting increasingly frustrated at all these beautiful blocks I was seeing that were all paper pieced.
Well, last night, I finally found a tutorial that spoke to me. Thanks to Vanessa at Crafty Gemini, I got it! Now, mind you it’s not the most complex block I’ve seen, but I did it… Made the 4 parts, put it together, and here we are :
I can see why people get addicted to these. They are so much fun!
Now back to making dinner!
To all my quilters out there, what technique have you mastered that used to make you nervous? Which technique are you still hoping to master some day? I’d love to know…
