MY CURRENT PAPER PIECED OBSESSION....


This is my newest project, and I'm feeling a bit obsessed about it! It's still in the early, infatuation stage, as I only have these two blocks completed. I have a lot of Daiwabo scraps. I'm going to keep the darker diamonds and jewel shapes the same fabric throughout. The centers will always be red, although not the same fabric. The large hexagons and the half hexagons will be different in each block. Jane made this block a couple of years ago, starting with a 1/2 inch hexagon in the center....her finished block measured four inches along the sides. I've double the size, starting with a 1 inch hexagon, so my block measures eight inches along the outer edges. I figure I will need about 45 to 50 blocks for a large bed quilt. Each block takes a couple of evenings.....and that's when I don't do anything else. It will be a while before it lands on my bed, but I sure am having fun playing with the Daiwabo scraps!
