    Saw a project idea this weekend for scrap quilt using super small squares – I think fabric would look great in it!

    Your Christmas project looks amazing. I have to admit to never trying paper piecing, I get worried just thinking about it and getting it all right. x

    Oh my gosh, those Berry Merry blocks are gorgeous! And in your scraps, I spy those wispy blues from last week (?), now made into scraps–you’ve been busy, as always.

    Your paper piecing is lovely! Paper piecing is my favorite thing — so many gorgeous things can be made that way! Love the green print with the diamonds in your scrap pile.
