More Blocks

Moving right along. I have three more blocks done. All are new or relatively new techniques for me.

This one is for the TMQG bee. It was the first time I tried any improv. I really enjoyed it.

This next one is my third try at paper piecing. One of our bee mates wanted a chicken block. This is Hen with Chick which is a free pattern I found on Sew Hooked. Credit on the site is given to Catherine Magraith. Thanks Catherine. It is a 5 inch block, so I made four slightly different yet related chickens with their baby chicks.

Finally, I made a version of E.T. Phone Home which is a new, free paper piece pattern from Lynne of Lily's Quilts

Lynne asked for those who made her new block to show it to her, but mine still has quite a bit of room for improvement. I think I will leave the paper in the star points until the entire block is sewn next time. I really love this block so I already have plans for some more E.T. Phone Home blocks.

What are you working on?
