My first try at Paper Piecing a Halloween Kitty

I was trying to beat the deadline for Quiet Play's Paper Piecing Blog Hop....I didn't succeed but that doesn't mean I wasn't successful!  So what if what I thought would take me a couple hours took me several hours and this is what I have to show for my time!

I really thought I picked an easy project!  Well, maybe for someone who has more experience than me.  Maybe simple for someone who can look at the pattern and go from there!  That wouldn't be me.  I didn't even know this might be more advance for my level of experience.  I am really proud of myself for not giving up...even after having a seam ripper in my hands more time than not.  Even though I don't have a finished project, I am proud I tried.  I will work on this project on Wednesday and share my success.  I found this pattern at Artisania, Sonja was gracious to give quilters a free pattern.  Thanks Sonja!


  1. Well done you for giving paper piecing a try! You did a fantastic job!! I love the fabric you chose for the cat!

    If you get busy in the next day or two - you might still manage to squeak your project into the linky party! ;) But if not - well I think your block looks just wonderful all the same!

  2. It looks great! I like the fabric you selected for it. What will you do with the block?

    1. Next month I will hang it with all my other halloween decorations!
