And here are the results of my first attempt at paper piecing:
I l.o.v.e. it!!! And it really was easy! I decided not to put a binding on this mini quilt so instead I stitched the front and back right sides together with a piece of batting at the back (leaving a small opening) and then turned the whole thing through the opening. The pattern said to use embroidery for the eye, but I decided to use a small black button instead.
In this picture, I hadn't pressed it yet or closed the opening, but I'll do that this weekend. I'm also going to do some echo quilting around the ducky and something else on the duck itself... not quite sure yet. Any suggestions?
And what did you try this week? I'm linking up at Melissa's for TNT Thursday. Be sure to check out what else everyone is up to this week.
That's it for now. Talk to you all later.
