My youngest son loves his Build-A-Bear critters! They have their own "closet" full of fancy (expensive) clothes, cute little names and now, one of them even has his own quilt. Using scraps from the mountain of fabric in the stash, I made a couple of "wonky" log cabin blocks just for fun. I can't remember if I shared that photo with the blogging world but it doesn't matter. What does matter is that the morning after I finished that quilt top, my box of paper piecing supplies from Connecting Threads arrived and I just had to try a few of the patterns from the new book. Sure, I've seen paper piecing videos and tutorials but never tried it for myself. I'm hooked! These are my first two paper pieces blocks along with two more wonky log cabins. Ol' Jack the Black Belt puppy has been recreated onto his own quilt block. :) My son loves it and I'm sure Jack will, too.
