I finished it! well the top anyway, I have not yet quilted it.
I was just really excited to show it off. It's a paper piecing technique. You may have seen it around a few times since there is going to be a quilt a long real soon about it:
but for now I found a different quilt along using your scraps and I thought this would be perfect!
This is what one block looks like. So I just did 4 blocks and put them together.
If you have a lot of scraps laying around (most of us do) then I would suggest a paper piece quilt because if you are like me then alot of your scraps are cut on the bias and paper piecing helps stabelize them.
Some tips for this block is to use a lot of starch and pin, pin, pin, which I talked about in this post
