Virginia Bound

Today I was able to sew with the Piecing Friendships Group.

Bonnie was teaching her Virginia Bound quilt from her book, Scraps and and Shirttails.

Here are a couple of views of the room we were sewing in...

...and another view.

This quilt is a combination of foundation piecing and paper piecing. Two techniques that I don't have a whole lot of experience at doing. It was fun to learn as I pieced and felt more comfortable sewing the block quarters together! I would sew a strip that I thought was very wonky and when I flipped the looked *almost straight*! By the end of the workshop, I was getting more adventurous with my angle strip placement.

Here are four of my quarter units that make up one block! Yes, I *stole* the reds from a *back burner* project and added a slew of greens for a Christmas-y effect.

My table mate to the right had chosen lights as her background and blues/greens for her kite. It is always amazing how the same quilt pattern will look so different dependent on where the fabric colors are placed.
