Last March I took a class in paper piecing and this was the project. I had a little difficulty. First attempt, I put 4 or so rows together and realized the pattern wasn't right. Ripped those out and the 2nd try it went together perfectly. Last night, while sewing on the border, I realized I didn't have enough. Went back to the store and they didn't have anymore. Came home and figured out where I went wrong, did some ripping and cutting and piecing and ended up with enough of the green to finish. Now I just have to sandwich and quilt. Since I've only quilted 6 potholders this month on my new machine, I don't want to try anything too difficult and mess this up. Although I had a goal of finishing it by March, I may set it aside and do some placemats, etc, for myself to practice before trying to quilt this. Any suggestions for how to quilt it would be appreciated. I can do in the ditch since it has straight lines, but would you add more? I think it is 49 x 61 and it is a wallhanging.
