Work in Progress Wednesday - Week 29

Finally - finally - I learned paper piecing!

I'm doing the St. Paul quilt block in batiks. It's supposed to look like stained glass windows, and I am so in love. I've read dozens of online tutorials, but it didn't make sense until I took a class and just did it. Thank goodness for excellent teachers!

Hunter's Star, round two: 32/90 light blue half-blocks

 Five Swoon blocks done; working on #6, a 16" one. I saved the HSTs from the flying geese in the bigger blocks - soon I need to figure out if I can use those in the smaller blocks.

I finished piecing Sunkissed Jewel Box.

Mom's Tennessee Waltz is quilted and bound and packed for Virginia.

Fat Quarter Stars - first block posted yesterday - haven't made mine yet
Argyle Quilt Along - starts 10/3 - I'm using a stash of fall fabrics to make a slightly smaller version
