Hello Quilters! This week's block is Betty's Bloom from Carl Hentsch and it has us paper piecing again. This block went a lot more smoothly than the last paper pieced one I did. It had been years since I had paper pieced and that last block took a bit to get in the swing of things again. I was ready this time!
The paper I use is from That Patchwork Place. I like it because I don't have issues running it through my printer yet it is easy to sew through and remove. I used darker fabrics for my block to create more contrast with the cream script print. I think it gives the block a nice graphic quality.
That's quite a pile of loveliness! You can get your block at www.thesplendidsampler.com.
The Autumn issue of Simply Vintage will be here tomorrow and listed on the website. Until next week...
