Are you always looking for fresh, new quilt blogs to follow? Are you new to quilt blogging yourself and in search of inspiration and tips to get started? Do you just love beautiful quilt eye candy? If you answered
yes to any or all of these, then be sure to check out
The New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop, which starts today at Plum & June. So many inspired writers and lots and lots of gorgeous quilts to ogle! Can't wait to jump in myself when the next round of the hop gets underway.
I also wanted to share a little of what I'm working on... wrapping up small projects so I can get started on my next big task with a clear plate - err, clear cutting table ; )
The butterfly bee blocks are for Daisy at Ants to Sugar. I tried the Economy Blocks on paper and failed miserably - my machine's tension was a mess - but remade them sans foundation. Then I turned to my trusty Late Night Quilters Club, and went with their interfacing tip so I could tackle the more intricate block below. If you love butterflies or paper piecing, too, here's the link to this great pattern by Juliet at Tartankiwi. What do you think of my first attempt at the technique? Have you made this pattern before? Do you use regular paper, specialty paper or interfacing when you paper piece?
