My son would like me to make the following sword and shield quilt and has created 2 paper pieced patterns. I tried to make the shield but it was too hard for me. Since neither James or I have experience with paper pieced things we need to know if the pattern is too complicated. The material we ordered for the sword showed up today so I have not yet tried that but it seems much less complicated so should be easy I think to make.
(Tanya laughed at me Shield is spelled wrong on our pattern, So no laughing. No I mean it No Laughing.)
Here is a mock up of the quilt. We have bought material just nee help advice so we can make the quilt. If any of you have experience in paper piecing we could use your help.
If any one is interested in trying to make either of the swords or shields I was thinking I could collect donation blocks and make a quilt (assuming I get enough blocks) for the Autism School that Jared goes too (and James went too) for their auction in March. If your interested in making one or more blocks to donate let me know. If you just want to make one and send us a picture that would be great too (with any suggestions to improve pattern if you have any)
So any way this is my Quilting Challenge if any one wants to take me up on it?
Here is a list of all those that have contacted me with completed blocks.
