Our Modern Quilt Guild (Cape Fear Modern Quilt Guild) is starting a monthly challenge. The challenge? Take a traditional quilt block and make it “Modern”. Our 1st challenge was a HEART block. Here is my block. I used the “paper pieced” technique for this block. My 1st paper pieced project.
So what do I think of this “paper piecing” technique? I found that you really have to think differently to do “paper piecing” as you kinda do things backwards. So I guess it is a good technique to exercise the brain. Better than crossword puzzles. I just saying.
Now I’m not really into the “heart’s” so I will probably use this on the back of a boy baby quilt (sometime in the future) as a quilt label and add the name of the baby in the grey part of the heart.
I really enjoy this new challenge as it is fun to find inspiration on the web and put your twist on it.
Happy Stitch’n. Mary
