Fabric Bundles and Paper Piecing

It’s been a flurry in my house this week as we prepare for a bit of downtime next week for Spring Break. Between some quilt designing, laundry folding and errand running, not a ton of sewing got done. That’s ok, I did do a lot of prep work for my next project.

Isn’t that fabric up there pretty? That is a really fun Fat Quarter bundle I put together for Fabric Spark. (And yes, you can buy your own!) I’m so happy with how it turned out! I’m sort of picturing tiny wonky stars made out of those colors, but not totally sure yet.

I did cut all my fabric for my Shimmer blog hop project this week. And my paper piecing templates.

Next time I sit at the sewing machine, I should just fly through these blocks (hopefully!) These are pretty similar to the Arkansas Traveler blocks.

Things will be a bit quiet here over the next week while I take a little break with my family. I hope to be nice and relaxed when I return! 🙂

    Faith, absolutely pretty! Love paper piecing too! Can’t wait to see more and love the colours of your fabric. That yellow against the pink is so hot too! Considering I am a blue fan I must be having a funny week too!!!!!
    Enjoy your break. Julie

    Faith, you are the paper-piecing queen! I am going to call you Queen Midas–every fabric you touch turns to gold. Enjoy your ‘break’ and know that we are all looking forward to your return! You will be missed!

    I always love your fabric choices. I recently bought your book and am especially drawn to the Star Bright Quilt. Thank you for all the great tutorials you post here. I’ve followed your blog for a while now. Have a great break with your family.

    Enjoy your Spring break, Faith! I’m definitely looking forward to ours, even though my husband has to travel for work part of that week. My kids have had so many projects for school lately that this momma is a frazzled mess!

    Does that block have a name? Where can I get it?

      Hi Stacy – It’s based on the Arkansas Traveler quilt block. I did make a change in the center area. I’ll post more details in my wrap up post on Saturday, with the finished quilt. 🙂
