I've been plugging away this week on a UFO from way back... Jewel Squares from Kaffe Fassett's Glorious Patchwork. (Click the book image and you'll see the original version). This UFO got lost in space for a while. I actually started it in 2011 and re-discovered it on a closet clean out. Finally, I've finished all those fiddly little paper-pieced blocks. There are 155 of them, ranging in size from 9 inches to 1 and 1/2 inches. Yikes!
And here they are laid out... though I couldn't actually start sewing them due to technical difficulties. I took a little break from quilting to do a repair job on a piece of Himself's clothing. Turns out my dear Pfaff wasn't a fan of so many layers of heavy fabric! I was forced to bust out the back-up...

|Just part of why Q-A hates paper piecing!|
The snow's still falling... but even I have to leave the studio once in a while!
