Paper piecing

There has been sickness, lots of work, some sewing, design and creation for the embroidery guild's wearable art, more crochet and some costume working out in my head designing for a play.  All of which keeps me away from here.

So today is the super quick paper piecing done after finding this post from Ellison Lane Quilts.  I don't use 'super' often, but really it was super quick.

I have done some hexagon English paper piecing and have wanted to try machine paper piecing.  I couldn't believe how quick it was to complete one block.   

Don't look too closely at the seams I was against the clock.

So now I have a starting point for this selection of fabric.

Once I get the rest of my sequins on, I'll be back to tell about my contribution to the wearable art project.

Free quilt pattern

I've been away for some time, sorry.
It doesn't help when you are an inconsistent blogger, but as I have said before, '...must try harder'.
I really don't want to bore you with the why, just let you know that I'm back and lots of change is on the cards for very soon.  
So getting to the point, the lovely Sew Happy Geek has offered a rather nice free pattern which I will be doing hopefully this year!
And in between all of the other things, I am still getting some sewing done...

Until next week
