Coming Back

It's been a long time since my hand surgery, and physical therapy goes on, but I needed to try doing something creative again. So I joined a Facebook group for making and swapping 4.5" paper-pieced blocks. There is a specific color theme for the outside triangles each month (yellow-orange for June), and the inside triangles/fussy-cut centers are sewer's choice. These blocks aren't hard, but I had to re-learn paper-piecing. After numerous "duh" mistakes, I was able to get these 3 done and will send them off. I will then receive 3 others in return. Fun!

These are cute. It's a nice way to use scraps.

I just turned on the computer and was going to send you a note after I read my list and there you ARE!! So glad you are able to feed your creative soul. Guess your recovery is progressing nicely.
xx, Carol

I love them! If you go back to my very first quilt block in March of 2008, you will see that this is the paper pieced block that started my quilting journey.
The start of my quilt journey

It's wonderful that you're able to create something again, Barbara. What fun to join a swap. I'd have to re-learn paper-piecing also. It's so long ago that I used that technique. Your blocks are lovely, hopefully you'll get some sweet ones in return.
Have a wonderful week!

Your blocks are beautiful and your work is so skillful. No one could even tell you have had hand challenges by viewing this work.

I'm so happy for you.
