I started the Celtic Solstice Mystery from Bonnie Hunter.
But following guidelines it's just not my style!! :)
So first of all, I decided to do the small version/4 because I don't want to buy too much fabric and I want to see the mystery before deciding if I want to do the small quilt or something smaller.
Then I hate triangles, so how did I do the first step which was triangles-in-a-square? Paper piecing obviously :) I draw my triangles-in-a-square on graph paper and then sew on them. No triangles to precut, no dog ears to match or not match, no scant quarter inch seam, no seams to rip... just sew on the line and get perfect (or pretty good) triangles! And I left the paper behind them so that they have an added stability until they will be in the final layout!!
(Chesire Cat is there to remind you to like my project for the Iron Quilter 2 (Alice's Game) on Facebook...
And +1 it on Google plus following this link!!)
For the Tea Towel Challenge 2014 I picked the following tea towel to be the center of my wall-hanging (probably... maybe quilt? I don't know, we'll see where the project will bring me).
And since for the Paper Piecing Vintage 2014 I picked white and blue as colors as well, I decided to put some of those blocks around the Tea Towel!! Plus some more elements that I still have to design myself :)
I will use half of the tea towel because the other half is completely white... but that part will be used in the paper-piecing part so nothing will be wasted! :)
This is going to be a big challenge for me because I don't like to work with white.
But I choose it on purpose to push my boundaries! :)
I am very excited about these events!
Let's see if I will be able to keep up with the deadlines... if not that's life!
And again, please please please, like my project for the Iron Quilter 2 on Facebook...
