Arkansas Traveler Block

We had a great time at the Austin Modern Quilt Guild March meeting on Thursday night. There were 40 folks there, which was amazing! I was so glad to go to the meeting, but I was sad to have forgotten my Summer Sampler Series blocks to swap and donate. Thumbs down. 

Thank you Canon Rebel T1i for taking such a great photo at dusk on a rainy day!

This is what they look like, though! Taadaa! Paper piecing success. I understood paper piecing in theory. Though, even after a hands-on class at International Quilt Festival in Houston, I had yet to successfully foundation piece something using paper this way. (Thanks to Clare at selfsewn, I have gotten the hang of English paper piecing.)

I can't wait to make more blocks! I think I'll keep using my Terrain fabrics by Kate Spain. What a fun series. I definitely upped my skill level on this one. I hope everyone is having a great weekend of sewing.

Remember to spring forward for Daylight Savings Time. Here's to longer daylight hours for sewing in 2012!
