The Fun Stuff

Mom had these blocks already paper pieced. She had taken this "Rattlesnake" (for Karen K. Stone's pattern, click the link) class some years ago and had the unfinished work stored away. It is what we work on when I get to visit. I love the beautiful Robin Pandolf fabric Mom chose to use. I stitched the crescents onto the "melons" then spent a lot of time pulling out paper.

I got one of her books with the cd, but the cd won't work on my mac.
I have never paper pieced, looks like a lot of steps to me;)

Hi Debbie,
Mom was going to show me how, but we ran out of time. She is not fond of the process, but thinks I may like paper piecing. Thanks for the comment.
