Design Wall Monday

This has been a weird couple of weeks. You didn't see any designs from me last week because it was also stomach virus Monday, and it was a rough one. The older I get, the longer it takes to get back to normal after something like that.

 Anyway, I was also traumatized by the English paper piecing snowflakes that we did on the row quilt. I need to learn to do them since I have a whole darn quilt waiting for me to do, but it was still hard. And I was preparing for our Easter blow-out and then recovering from the virus, so I didn't have much time. I didn't finish my row until Sunday afternoon.  I hope next week is a little easier.
Then I finished the first row of the pinkwork bunny quilt and I have more finished to work on.  I need to do more of the patchwork, but I'm also machine appliquing.
EDIT:  Oh no!!! This week is paper piecing!!! I've never done that in my life.  

Well, I'm off to look for some paper piecing tutorials.  I joined this to expand my horizons, so I'm expanding.  Good grief!!!!

Hope you're feeling better. Design wall Monday is way better than stomach virus monday. Love the snowflakes, so cute. Paper piecing is so fun, one of my favorites. Hope you enjoy it.

Your Winter Wonderland quilt is coming along nicely. I really like the last snowflake row. For Paper Piecing I found Amy Gibsons lessons on the Craftsy site were fantastic. It is free to sign up. The October lessons are the FPP ones. Good luck with it.

Wow, you have a lot on your plate. But what you have done looks great. Sorry you had the virus. It went around here a month ago and those who had it were sick for quite awhile. Glad you are better and back to work. :-)
