So this is how the evolution process began. I grabbed some paper, scribbled a wonky house on it in a matter of seconds and went straight to the sewing machine. Typical me - not to think things through first. That's what my efforts turned into. Hmm... My not-so-Little-Boy said "Sorry, Mum, but it doesn't look like a house really". No, it doesn't, I concurred. I didn't even attempt finishing it but kept it anyway.
More paper was used, with a better design this time and the block was coming along quite well until I took a photo of it and looked at it on the phone screen. The sky is hanging on the sides of the house and takes too much space.
I tried fixing up the sky, I added a felt cloud and the sun but still I was not happy with the way how the whole block looked like.
I made myself a cup of tea and went to my work desk again. Deep thinking happened at this moment and some planning took place. I drew a new house, scanned it, printed a few copies just in case, chose pieces of fabric carefully and made sure to stop and look at my work throughout the process and this is what I managed to come up with.
It took me a few hours, but the result is totally worth it. I can see it developing into a quilt or some cute things for kids. I can even change the seasons now. Not bad for the first attempt at making a paper pieced block from scratch. What do you think?
