My WIp's for this week


Today I have been working on some Courthouse steps, these are  super easy and a great way to start paper piecing. It is also a scrap buster!!!!!



Lovely greens

Pretty Pinks


Gorgeous Grays


The pattern I used was from Elm Creek Quilts Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I checked it out from my library.




I am also practicing on some quilting but I need a new foot {I am hopefully getting today} to see my stitching better.  I was going to do some quilting but I am making too many mistakes because I cannot see through the plastic that is supposed to be see through but is not!

Your courthouse steps are fab! Love that they are all in their own color. And I'm a sucker for all matryoshka prints! Way to go!

I've been scrolling through and it is so nice to meet the face behind these courthouse steps I found first on Flickr. They're beautiful! I also really like the quilting on the left in your picture. I see a kind of heart chain =)
