Hi and Welcome to Greece! We are now in Chania in Crete and I hope you enjoy your visit!
I was so happy when Laura from ‘Quokka Quilts’ asked me to join this blog hop … but also a little bit worried because I had never done English paper piecing or joined blog hop.
I would love to show you so much from Crete, but that would become a huge post, so here are few photos I tried with the ’Play-Crafts’.
I had difficulty to find right colours from my fabrics and I had to imrovise a little bit.
Something from the beginning. Perhaps I should have stayed with my first colours.
Because this was my first time with paper piecing, I thought it’s better to start with bigger pieces and first I cut diamonds with my GO!Baby cutter and then I made all the templates with paper. I basted all the pieces and got this beautiful bundle! I used hard paper – I’m not sure if I should have done it with normal copy paper. With the hard paper it was more difficult to baste but more easy to sew (now worry to sew the paper) and they can be used again. Best is of course to use ready templates which you can find from ‘Paper Pieces’.
My block became quite big and I didn’t find yet good idea to use it. Now I wish I had made it smaller because I have seen so many beautiful pouches in this blog hop. So I guess that’s my next paper piecing project. But no worries, I know that one day also this block will find just the right place!
I know … don’t play with food, but few days ago I was trying to think what I can do with this block … then it was lunch time and I placed the Greek Feta on a plate add some oil and oregano … and I looked the colours! They matched so well to my block and made much better center piece than mine.
Don’t forget that November 30th there will be amazing prizes from all these fantastic sponsors!
Yesterday we hopped to Erica at ‘Kitchen Table Quilting’ and tomorrow is Dianne’s turn at ‘Quiltova’! You find also the link button on my sidelist, so you can easily visit and enjoy the blogs who join this blog hop!
Thank you so much for hopping to my home and joining me today! I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy this Blog Hop! Laura and Katy are travelling around and taking photos and making English paper piecing – come to follow with me their wonderful journey!
I’m sorry if you were here earlier – no excusies but my blog partner woked me up many times last night. He wanted out, he was looking from the window, lying down, then again out … so we woke very late today and now he is sleeping!
