I started this paper piecing project quite a while ago. Then I stopped because it was A LOT of paper piecing, and I got tired of it. Then, after I finished the heart bibs, I was looking at my list of other things I’d like to make. One is a spring table cover for the table by our front door. I was looking through fabric and patterns for inspiration and remembered this paper piecing project. So, I dug it out of the box of unfinished projects in the basement and took a look at it.

After finishing piecing the Crackpotty Backing for the Round Robin Quilt, I’ve been making these three paper pieced log cabin blocks. They form a flower basket for a 14″ block I found in one of the quilting magazines Marty brought to All Together Week. The rest of the block is appliqué, and I hope to make it into a wall hanging for our downstairs half bathroom.
