Ima Bee Catch-Up

I made these lovely Schoenrock Cross blocks for Leila, a member of my Flickr Ima Bee.  They look great, but what a headache!  These were paper pieced, and I found it easiest to make freezer paper templates first.  When you do that, make sure you are consistent with the side of the fabric you're ironing them to, otherwise things won't turn out right :)  

Leila sent us the background fabric, which I think was Bella Aloe, and then we had specific instructions for the rest of the colors.  She already has the quilt top put together and is adding borders.  Meanwhile, my blocks are sitting next to my sewing machine but I have so many other WIPs on hand right now, I won't be getting to them in awhile.  If I'd get off Bloglovin, maybe the quilt in my lap would be bound by now!

I'm posting this on the Paper Piecing Party at Quiet Play, which will be happening every Friday.  Join us!
