The rest of the block was paper piecing, which I love because all my points and corners look perfect.
The four t-shirt centers of the blocks:
|The t-shirt squares will go in block 1, then using the numbers on the paper to add additional fabrics. Sewing is done on the paper with the fabric underneath.|
|Parts 2 and 3 are added then 4 and 5.|
|First five completed.|
|Oops. The material is under the paper when sewing so have to be careful not to catch some of the material in the seam incorrectly. Not fun tearing out those tiny-tiny stitches.|
|Pieces 6, 7, 8, and 9 completed.|
|Second time. I believe I did this three times.|
|Cutting off the excess material with a fancy 'add a quarter' ruler.|
|Neat quarter inch seam allowance.|
|A lot of cut off when doing paper piecing.|
|Tearing off all the paper. This is the only part I don't like about paper piecing. Had to get a pair of tweezers out to get some of those little pieces.|
The final blocks before quilting.
|The Harley patch block, front and back.|
|Ride Free - 2003 - front and back.|
|This was posted on face book not too long ago, my husband liked it. He has recently started drinking coffee and he hates Mondays. The back is below.|
|The date is when we got married. Yes, celebrating 30 years tomorrow. The back is below.|
I really liked doing the paper piecing on this block. Block nine was not my favorite, too many small pieces. Will be posting those results in a few days.
