I have finished my first paper pieced block and I messed it up, but I still thought it turned out cute. I did a number of things wrong. I cut out material for 2 different swords. I grabbed the first 2 pieces to sew together (the larger part of the sword I on accident grabbed 2 of the same color rather then 1 light and 1 dark as my son's desire was. So to continue the mistake I just did the same alternating gray for the other part. I also made one other big mistake on the left half of the sword I cut down the block edge instead of the 1/4 inch seam edge on accident so my block is smaller then what it should have been. I did this Christmas afternoon and only had time to do one because the family was rushing me to go visit others in the family. Anyway 1 sword down. A million to go. Though I have to admit this is going to be a time consuming, but fun quilt to make. (Sword Pattern Here, Shield Pattern Here)
I am looking for help making a charity quilt with these paper pieced swords and shields please look at this post for more details.
