Firstly, ignore that my mug above says “merry christmas”. Lol. It’s a favorite because of size and shape.
I hope you have been happy and well this past week. We are off to make out Girl in the Corner blocks this round. So simple. It’s a perfect week to use for catching up and getting on track.
This Week’s Task
We’re working on section #6 this round, the Girl in the Corner blocks. There’s only four of them and they end up as the four corners of your quilt top.
- Girl in the Corner blocks would be a good time for fussy cutting if you are inclined.
- This is another perfect moment for chain piecing.
Fabrics I’m using
I’m using Art Gallery Fabrics Spirited fabrics and Pure solid Macademia for my background.
Everything you need for Para Para in one place!
