Playing Field Blanket

This blanket I recently completed was made for my Aunt Pat.  She gave it to her son, my cousin Steven, who is a large Boston Bruins Hockey fan.  It was made from a Robert Kaufman Kit.  I made a few adjustments in the corners to add the Boston Bruins decals.  I think it turned out very well.  He seamed to really like it on Christmas morning. 

Christmas Tree Paper Piecing

Recently I took a paper piecing class at The Quilt Patch a quilting store here in my hometown Tecumseh, MI.   I have fallen in love with paper piecing.  Below is a picture of my first project that was done in class.  I found it so easy and in the end you get a beautiful and detailed picture. Plus bonus you can use up all those little scrap pieces of fabric.  I ordered new patterns as  soon as I got home from class.  I can't wait to start my next project :)
