This month I have been on a roll with Celebrating Mary Brown.
There are a couple blocks in CMB that I have made with an English Paper Piecing technique, this works especially well if I want to do fussy cutting. After I piece the sections together by hand I starch and iron the piece, then remove the papers and press one more time and applique the paper pieced unit onto the background.
The other quilt I am working on is Panama Pyramids. I have put a nice dent in my reproduction scraps and have all the pyramid blocks cut, I try to get a couple sewn every day.
Lots of fussy cutting opportunities in this quilt also. I am anxious to start cutting the background triangles but I think it would be better to remember which side of the large background triangles is on the straight of grain and have it on the bottom edge of each row. So until I am ready to start sewing the rows together I am holding off, but here is a little preview of pieced blocks lying on the background fabrics.
Happy Stitching All,
