Thanks to Dianne at Rosewillow's Unfinished Business, I am now a blogger. In keeping with my aims for 2010 I chose a Hoffmann "Kimono" fabric that has been in my stash since ?1997. Unfortunately, my beloved fabric does not have enough contrast for the pattern I chose. Undeterred, I turned to some beautiful batiks that I have petted since 2000. To challenge myself further, I chose Jambalaya a paper pieced pattern that I bought in 2001.
The tiny pieces frightened me, so I enlarged them 180%.
I am very pleased with the first block.
Thank you Dianne. The first cut only hurt a little.
