...and being a Bad Blogger. I will have no news until late tomorrow about my house sale, and everything hinges on that. So my apologies for the silence and lack of blogging and blog reading.
Thanks to all those who have wished me well. There just seem to be so many things to think about, and my creativity is at rock bottom, what with most of my stuff being packed away.
However, another quilt still hanging at home is this New York Beauty variation, which I have never named. This was from another Donna Ward class. I decided to work outside my comfort zone of colours, and chose Japanese fabrics in browns and indigos (click on the photo for a larger view).
Much as I love the effect of this pattern, I discovered I really disliked the fussiness of paper piecing, being much more of a "random rotary-cutting gal". Consequently it took an entire year to finish this small wall hanging, which I ended up simplifying as I couldn't face all those fiddly points.
