Paper Pieced.

I took an unintentional break from paper piecing. Like a year long break. Which is really strange because if you've followed me for a long while, you know that I LOVE paper piecing. I made the whole Harry Potter Project of Doom quilt a few years back.

(And of course, now I realize I never posted a picture of the finished quilt because my mom quilted it and gave the quilt to my sister because it was a gift for her.)

In any case, after doing the Sew Kitschy BOM last year, I bought both the Sew Retro and Sew Retro 2 bundles to make a REALLY big Suzie Homemaker quilt. (Patterns all from Quiet Play on Craftsy and PayHip) Aaaaand then I made one or two from the Sew Retro bundle and put everything on the shelf for it to sit.

So over the last few days and lots of playoff baseball, I made it thought a whole block! This one is three utensils.

In progress shot! I realized that one of the reasons I must have shelved this project is because I needed more blues to work in.

Here's the finished product!

Just for scale, this block is 10.5 inches square. Lots and lots of little pieces for the spatula and the whisk!

Hopefully this project won't be shelved for another year! But who knows with all those dang baby quilts I need to make.

Sharing at WIP Wednesday!
