|Greenfield and Stockton from last |
week... all fixed.
So let's get started on the final two blocks from this section of the book, 'Sorrow' and 'Gloomy Prospects' Both blocks are paper pieced. If you need a refresher coarse on paper piecing, I found this website helpful...http://www.daystyledesigns.com/paperpiecing.htm
|'Sorrow' is broken down into 10 paper piecing sections. I label all of the colors in each section of the paper piecing templates. I find this very helpful while working on these blocks.|
|Sewing on the lines of the foundation paper... remember to sew beyond the 1/4" seams.|
|What my block looked like after sewing but before trimming....|
|'Sorrow' completed. I think this is my personal favorite block so far... 43 pieces to this block, I counted.|
|My fabric choices and foundation paper for 'Gloomy Prospects'.|
|Stitching on the sewing lines. Going in the numerical order printed on the foundation paper.|
|Here I am trimming away the excess fabric as I work on the block, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance. Don't cut the foundation paper!|
|The three sections of the block completed and trimmed leaving a 1/4" seam allowance.|
