WIP Within A WIP

Time seems to be slipping through my sewing fingers … I find that always happens when I start a project with a deadline – do you?

Any-whooo … I've almost completed another block for my MIL's quilt.  As she is English I've made a Union Jack to add to her story quilt.

It’s  a paper-pieced block (my first ever!) and I really enjoyed the process.

I used this template to make it.

My hubby liked it too (being English of course) and asked if I could make a WHOLE QUILT out of these little babies – hmm I'm not sure if I enjoyed the process that much?

Now to sew all the bits together

It’s a tiny little block so I think I’ll add a white border so that it matches a little better with the Apple Pie block I've already done.

Hmm, now that you have my attention paper piecing … what will you do with me?



  1. Lovely idea to add to a story quilt! Paper piecing is a little addictive - looks like you're off to a great start!

  2. wonderful...I love that pattern and have yet to make one...shame on me!!

  3. Lovely, if you want a bigger block there is a free pattern on Craftsy

  4. this block looks great and turned out wonderfully, I tried paper piecing as well and agree, not sure if a whole quilt would be fun lol

    I am stopping by from the WIP hop, hop on by if you can!

  5. This caught my eye, not only for the colors, but also for your pristine piecing. I think it looks fabulous!

  6. Ahhh paper piecing can be really fun, but tricky too. Taking your time I find is key. I absolutely love the fabrics in your block.
