A new quilt

At the time of writing, Cuzco is a couple of hours of hand stitching from being finished.  I know, you have no idea what Cuzco is as I haven't mentioned it in aaaaaaaaaaaaages.  It is the quilt I've been working on since summer 2014 using the Cuzco line of fabric by Kate Spain.  You will see it again soon as it's nearly finished.

Enter a new quilt.  

Take a massive pile of FQs in the colours of the colour wheel...


One massive and insanely intricate paper piecing pattern...


and cut, cut, cut, cut, cut.

I was starting to think you had given up on sewing - I'm glad to see this post - can't wait to see the quilt :D

Yeah, that's insane. Wow! It's going to be pretty, though, with all those colors!

That looks like a great pile of fabric and a ridiculously hard pattern. Which will mean this is going to look stunning when done. Good luck x

I'd be stressing over how many incomplete FQs I would now have!

A mariners compass is on my wish list. I can`t wait to see this one come together.

I love the fabrics, but paper piecing is my least favourite method!!

My word! 'massive and insanely intricate paper piecing pattern' is understating the case I think! Good luck with that! :)
