What the heck ...... I didn't have anything to loose. If it didn't work out, the trash can was near by, and nobody would ever need to know that I'd attempted it.
I had two fat quarter packs, five pieces in each pack of fabric, in different shades of blue. Time to get cutting and sewing ..... not forgetting the ironing that goes with this kind of project !!!
Here's the back of the project ..... see what I mean by LOTS of paper piecing ....
The four corner blocks are pieced together individually, and then attached to a central square, by four strips.
It is far from perfect, but I'm thrilled about how well it turned out. The completed square measures 24" by 24", so they are big. I'm wondering whether I have it in me, to make another eight of those squares, join them with sashing, and create a quilt ...... Hmmm, maybe it needs to be one of those projects that's created over time. Although, this square only took me two days, working for a few hours on each of those days.
Here's the front ...
I need lots more practice to reach even close to perfection, but for a first try, I'm very happy with this square. A square every couple of weeks .... this may just be doable :-)
