peppermint candies quilt

One block done after joining 8 sections
ironing seams open after removing paper
I have a love / hate relationship with paper piecing.  First I love the accuracy with paper piecing but I hate  the  mess of removing the paper.
This block came together perfectly, look how those seams come together to form the peppermint candy....yeah I love that part!

I'll show the whole quilt after it is released by Quiltmaker mag., this pattern was shown in the  Oct. /Nov. issue but did not look anything like this. :0)  Happy Sewing, Kim

Home again, Home again

broken branches in the wires

Nine inches of heavy wet snow

Broken branches everywhere but none through the roof :0)
I've been away from home for a family emergency and returned to this!
