Paper Piecing Tutorial Link, Wonky Stars and a Flimsy at last!

First I want you to know about the Paper Piecing Tutorial. Jen O. has a video on her blog today that is very informative. I've paper pieced for over 5 years now, and I learned lots. Check it out at Sewhooked.com

Sorry it's been a while since I posted last. Here's what I've been doing. (Besides cleaning and primping for home showings.  We did sell the house once, but it fell through once we all figured out the timing.  So now we start over.)

For the Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Just one more block...


And it is finally a flimsy for the new grandgirl to be. (Wouldn't it be a surprise if the doctor missed something and she is a he? I am a perverse granny.) Still some paper to pull - just the little crumbs that don't come straight off the first time. It really looks more colorful here even though it's a fuzzy photo. I tried to keep it low grade value wise.

So I'm going to link up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge tomorrow, and to Sarah's Whoop Whoop today. (Links are in the side panel.) Come on by and see what others have been working on.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Terri

  3. Sorry to hear the house sale fell through. That must have been really frustrating for you. Im sure the universe has someone else just around the corner though.

    The girly quilt is coming along beautifully and Im loving those scrap blocks too.

  5. Love your sweet quilt top and those blue blocks! I'm a sucker for star blocks. I have checked out your paper piecing YouTube clip, but it's on my list of things to do. So sorry to hear the sale of your house fell through. Rats!

  6. Hoping for the sake of the beautiful pink quilt that she is a girl. Better luck this time around on the house. Keeping everything ready for showings is so stressful.

  7. Sorry about the house thing. It took two contracts to get our house sold in OK. We already had a contract on this house when the other contract fell thru. When the new contract on the OK house happened, we were happy. It still took way longer than expected, and we were only days away from having to pay mortgage payments on two houses at once (EEK!!!). Thank goodness the old house finally closed in time.

  8. House selling is so tough...requires so much patience! Hope to not have to do that again for a very long time. I'd actually be glad to just in our old house now....I continue to love these wonky stars...I think it's the simplicity of the white against the color...plus you know how much I like wonky...Happy weekend Terri.

  9. Lovely work Terri especially in the circumstances. I was driven crazy by the amount of preparation it took to get the house sorted per viewing. I had to keep tidying projects away and bringing them back out which frustrated me. Like you we had a sale fall through (the buyer had an undeclared house to sell). I really ought to get the house sorted- it's a right mess at the moment.

  11. Your x and o quilt (or is it hugs and kisses) is such a goodie. You did wonderfully on it. I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't have pink blocks to display on the very first day! I still have my fingers crossed for your house selling...it can be such a nightmare. Hang in there and get piece-ful with quilting!

  12. Love those wonky stars. Your hugs and kisses quilt is too precious. If it does turn out to be a boy I'm sure it won't be hard to find a home for the pink one.

  13. Thanks for the link to the paper piecing tutorial. I always seem to need a good refresher before I attempt it.
