New York Beauty swap - I've moved these blocks around a few times, and I just can't seem to decide how I want to finish this one up, so I decided to make a few more blocks to see if that helps me out. I decided that I wanted to make a mini, and use some tiny quarter blocks in the corners of the mini, so I shrunk the templates by 50%, and attempted to make a corner block that failed miserably.
The tiny paper piecing was a cinch, but I was totally defeated by the tiny curves. Just not enough fabric to work with! So, I'm heading back to the drawing board, trying to figure out what kind of border to add to this mini to make it pop. Maybe I'll freehand some other kind of paper pieced border, we'll see.
The munchkin's new quilt - The munchkin announced at lunch a few weeks ago that his quilts are too big. That he wants one he can snuggle up with like his Grammy blanket, a ratty old blue fleece blanket my mother gave him. He has asked that it be a superhero quilt, with lots of blue (still going strong as his favorite color!), but that's about as far as I've gotten with him. So far, I've pulled together these fabrics, working from a Batman-inspired color scheme.
