I GOT IT!!! AND I AM TOTALLY HOOKED!!!
I’m so excited to share this that I didn’t even rip it off the foundation paper (vellum)!!
There’s my first cup/mug!! ( I gave up on the apple…to small for a first project).
I’m so excited I don’t even know what to do with myself.
Look at the detail on that handle…wow!!!
The only question/issue I have, which I’m hoping one of my readers who’s done this before can help me with, is how did I transpose/reverse the image? And how do I not do it again….?
I’m not going to lose a ton of sleep over it because I’m to thrilled with the results.
And I made pieces #9 & #14 white instead of solid pink…again, a big deal…NO!!
The wrong color on #14 (in the side by side picture) was getting to me a bit so I had to change that one as you may have noticed above.
But #9…Do I care? Not in the least. Beside there was way to much re-doing to fix that one. I understand the technique (most of it!!!) That’s what counts. Now I can work on that shawl for my aunt without this puzzle nagging me. Once the shawl is done I’ll be back to piecing!!
I also wanted to mention…the tools that made this all happen (beside the YouTube video). The subscription card and the Add A Quarter Ruler…can’t work without them. And the books…Cups and Saucers Paper Pieced Kitchen Designs and Needles and Notions Paper Pieced Patterns with a Sewing Room Theme. The paper for this block came from the first book.
I’m thinking a little quilted coaster…
Now off the knit!!!! Though I’m dying to start another one!!!!
