I have been doing a little paper piecing. I decided to start easy with the 5 inch economy block from Red Pepper Quilts. I used a scrap of umbrella prints. I have no idea what to do with it but it is very cute.
Then I made a lego batman block which still needs the mouth embroidered and will become a cushion or placemat. This is free and one of many patterns from Quiet Play, a blog I follow. Kristy has so many great patterns availabe in her craftsy shop including freebies and BOMs.
Finally I made a 7 inch economy block from the Quilters Cache. This uses scraps from a quilt I made my dad and will be given to him for his birthday, hopefully with a something else I will come up with soon. He is very hard to buy for.
