I was fortunate to test a few blocks for Quietplay on Instagram for her new series due for release by month end.

The word I tested was ‘QUILT’ and I love the way it turned out. I could never imagine that cursive writing was possible using paper piecing…what about all those curves! Butt Kristy has made it possible; the pattern is due for release by end of January.

Shruti, From 13woodhouseroad had Bella Parade’2015 on her blog and tested out the thread combinations on her set of FQs. There were about 8 straight line stitches on each FQ. She was unable to unravel the stitches for lack of time and asked if I’d want the FQs. I jumped up with joy!! Which fabric loving girl ever says no to fabric, EVER…

This is how they looked originally with 8 straight line stitches across the breadth of the fabric…
