I have never been much of a joiner. I prefer to do things by myself. However when I saw this sew along and it was all paper pieced, I was hooked.
Kristy at Quiet Play has some of the coolest patterns. She sells them on Etsy. Starting in January she is having a block a month sew along. Each month you can get that pattern free. If you are really anxious, and feel the need to get all the patterns at once, she will sell them all to you.
Here is what the completed wall hanging will look like.
With a Christmas gift card to Hobby Lobby in hand, I went shopping. I picked out these 7 fabrics. (The Christmas fabric is not included, but it was a good buy at $3 a yard)
Here is my first block. I might add some embroidery to the pot holder. The oven mitten doesn't stand out as much as I thought it would. I might make a new block. I have a whole 12 months to live with this one.
Won't you come and sew along?
