And Sew On - My August block completed!

I don't know where August went, but luckily I managed to get my block done for the And Sew On BOM over at Quiet Play. Its been a great series so far and there's only 1 left!

This block 'I like big stash' has to be my favourite yet, I really enjoyed picking what my fabric piles should be. I wish my craft cupboard was that neat! It came together quite quickly and I was pleased with the result, until my daughter managed to get her soggy apple fingers on it! It's left a dark stain on the fabric of the door, so I'm not sure what to do about that yet. Apart from that it's great!

I'm a lot more confident with paper piecing now and found myself using pins a lot less to secure fabric. Not always the best thing to do, but it is a bit quicker!

Thanks Kristy for a great series, I hope you're planning the next one!
