That's it I'm hooked on paper piecing. I signed up to " This goes with that " BOM at our local patchwork shop awhile ago and got my first month the other week. Well with the start of the school holidays and beautiful weather this weekend I thought I would sit out side under our trees and start sewing theses little 4 1/2 " hexagons. Now this is the first time I have done any paper piecing on such a big scale as 272 blocks are needed to make a quilt the size of 65" x 68". I have attempted small paper piece projects but only a small amount, I was so engrossed in sewing that I didn't realise how long I was out side and although underthe shade of a tree I still got burnt and now have legs the same colour and the red in the centre of one of the hexagon. I sun screened my face and arms but forgot my legs ( in to much of a hurry to start silly me ).
I have started my SSCS and wonder how big is to big for a ornament for the tree........ hehehe.
Have a great week and happy sewing I am of to fine the Aloe Vera spray for the legs.
Big Hugs Bec
