Fancy Block #2
Amanda and I are still practicing our paper piecing, improv piecing and block design skills. But, I must admit that I made this block at Penny's workshop back in April. (This week has been all about cleaning the house and preparing for Henry's birthday party. The other night I was up until 2:30am frosting a three layer chocolate cake.) But, back to the block....I drew up a picture for this in my sketchbook. Then I split the design into two sections for paper piecing. Then I added the border and lastly I added the whipped chain stitch embroidery for the chains on the swings. I don't have a plan for this block right now, but making it was a lot of fun. Check out Amanda's fancy block for the week here.
