|This week one of my blogging besties, Kristy, has started a weekly (don't quote me on that, I am not sure of the frequency) link up for your paper piecing pleasure, I mean progress. You can link up a fabric stack you have pulled to do some paper piecing, a project you have in the works, a completed paper pieced block, or a completed project. I think anyone who reads Kristy's blog gets hooked on paper piecing. She comes up with inspiring projects and I think her paper piecing patterns are some of the most user friendly around. I am not just saying that because she is my friend; I am saying that as a relatively new paper piecer. Her patterns are always adorable and not so overwhelming that you feel like you can't do them.|
It took me most of this month to decide on fabric for this block. I did end up failing on the contrast of the iron to the background. I thought since the background was cream the white iron would stand out, but it did not. I might go back and outline the iron with some black thread to help define it. It was a fun block to put together and I am excited to turn these blocks into something when the Block of the Month finishes in October.
This post is playing double duty- I am linking up to Kristy's Friday linky party and then I am also linking to the monthly block of the month post where you can check out how other people have interpreted the block.
