Feeling Splendid

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...
Happy Quilting, 
Dawn
