Paper Piecing Monday fussy cut edition

Today’s paper piecing Monday is a little detour from the regularly scheduled sampler quilt.  Over the weekend Amanda at What the Bobbin? started a fussy square block swap and I was so excited I started making blocks almost immediately.  There is swap joining details and a downloadable pattern on her site.

The idea of pulling out some of my fun novelty fabrics, fussy cutting them and making them into 4 inch blocks was too much fun…. here is what I have done so far.

I have so many great novelty scraps I can see myself getting quite carried away.  But for now I am going to finish making my 12 blocks, then move onto finishing up some of the quilt tops I have laying in pieces around my work space.  I want to have a finish for Friday.

Have a great week.

  1. Those are all too cute. Do you happen to know what line that camera piece came from? Thanks for sharing your work, I am always inspired.

  2. Eeeeeee these are so cute! I’ve been on the fence about joining because I have so many other things on my to-do list. Although I’m sure these work up super fast!

      • But what about the agonising over fabric choices BEFORE the cutting? I could have lost an hour just rummaging in my stash. That seems to be where I get delayed. You must be better at choosing (and in a timely manner) than I am as your combos all look great.

  3. Predictably, the hedgehog is my favorite! I just fussy-cut her (him?) for a project I’m ready to start! Are those robots a Kokka print? They are too cute, too.

    • I love Lizzy Houses designs and the hedgehogs are so cute. I can not wait to see what you do with yours. The robots are definitely Kokka. I bought it ages ago and have been using little pieces.
