So I have never really done any paper piecing before. I was always a little afraid of it. Plus, having to rip all that paper off the backs -- too much time investment for me. Well, when I saw Anina's BOM, it was too cute to pass up, and her paper piecing method is better than the sew-along-the-lines one I had always seen. She tells you to fold the freezer paper back on the line and sew along the edge. It works!
I am WAY behind on this one, but I finally have enough blocks to show on here. We're in month 4, and I haven't completed any sets. There are six for month 1. I have four. There are 27 for month 2. I have four. There are ten for month 3. I have two. There are ten for month 4. I have one. I was thinking I might put this on the back, but there is no black anywhere in my blocks. I'm trying to reconcile this. I had considered just making a few of the triangles black. My oldest daughter suggested I put a black border around the quilt top and then put another border of the bright fabrics. She also suggested that I do the background of some of the blocks in black. I don't really want to do the background in black on any of them, because then you would notice the negative space. Anybody have an opinion on how I should proceed?
