April Book of the Month

It's time for the new Book of the Month selection!  Carol Doak's
40 Bright and Bold Paper-Pieced Blocks wins this time!
I chose this because of Carol's new Craftsy class I took this weekend, Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing.  I've done paper piecing in the past, but have to admit there were a few things I didn't know that I learned in her class to make it a lot easier. 

So my first project is the Black Eyed Susan from the class, though I'm making mine white like a daisy.  I've printed out the blocks, gathered the fabric, and since I enlarged it, made new measurements.  Now to cut the pieces and start sewing!

After that one is done, I have 2-3 projects from the book picked out.  Let's see how far I get...

I hope you'll join me in paper piecing.  And if you've never tried it, I really recommend learning the technique from her class,
She is a great teacher, and well experienced about her topic.  She's also a lot of fun to watch!

Happy Quilting!
