Eeeeeeeee!!!!

Working on the Schnitzel and Boo Mini swap for a partner who likes Tula Pink... I decided this would be a great time to try out some envelope blocks. I haven't paper pieced in a long time... since I made the Ribbit quilt many years ago. I got my hands on a copy of Patchwork, Please! (yeah I know, I'm about 18 months late to the party!) and got to work. These weren't the fastest couple of blocks, but i'm happy with how they turned out and I'm looking forward to making more.

      The book Patchwork, Please! by Ayumi Takahashi has this paper pieced pattern and many other cute little projects in it. If you can't find it locally or at your library, Amazon sells it. Enjoy!
