I can't believe it...all the tree blocks are done! WOOHOO! Now it just needs borders.

There are five foundations left over. Eventually I'm going to sew them up into a miniature for my guild's next quilt show. But it will be a while!

It's only taken a year, but I finally have my Cat Magic test quilt for Jess all quilted and bound. I am using it on my couch as it is too big for my hanging quilt rack. But I love it and so do all my friends that have seen it. I also showed them all the issue of Connecting Threads catalog with the pattern in it for sale so they can buy it. I also updated my blog today and posted it on there with a link to Jess at Q&N. Not the best picture-the flash made the right corner really light, but it's on display. I already heard from
Pat-she likes it too.

Donna- Empress of Paper Piecing indeed!!  Great looking blocks, any tips on getting the paper off of the back?

Dana, it's pieced on foundations of stuff that feels like light weight interfacing. It stays in :). It also makes it thick enough to make a bullet proof vest! LOL

Dana.... what type of paper foundation are you using?  try a slightly larger needle, and stitch smaller.... then give a slight tug and the seams should perforate. 

If I'm printing a foundation, I use sheets that are like coloring book paper... I get it at the dollar store... It's softer and a little more fibery (is that a word?).. and tears away much better than standard copy paper.  The drawing pads have 60 sheets for a buck... you need to trim them if your printer only takes standard 8.5 x 11... 'cus the sheets are 9 x 12.....
