Anyhow, the timing of her request was just so that this seemed a great opportunity to test my newly learned ability to print a paper-piecing template from my EQ7 program. I had been playing with a spiderweb quilt on EQ7
and thought I would test my skills on this one block... Oh, and for you Seams Perfect gals - you'll likely be seeing this illustration again in the future, but that's a topic for another time. Anyhow, eventually I managed to get the pieces printed, then had to cut and tape the separate pages together like a puzzle until I had (4) 45-45-90 triangles. Next time I do this, I'll try running legal-sized paper through the printer and see if that helps.
Then on to the fun part - fabric selection and the actual paper-piecing! The scrappier the better, I say, so I went rummaging through my blue and white scraps to see what I had to work with, within Jennifer's parameters. I had forgotten about this excellent Amy Butler Love fabric until just recently, and it's doing well for me!
Then came some adventures in paper piecing...
... until I ended up with 4 pieced triangles...
... and finally a finished block!
I look forward to my next attempt, which will hopefully go smoother than the first, but I certainly cannot complain about what it yielded!
