You've see them popping everywhere. My friend Adrienne is pretty good at it. Me? I was so not excited about making this. Paper piecing is not my favourite method. It took a while to get started but really, all it took was a quiet Sunday morning, a nice coffee and some good country music on the radio!

I like that Janet asked us to chose colourful prints and, not being a fan of the flag itself, I liked the option to reverse the red and blue placement. I briefly considered using a fleur de lis print but then I thought it would be a little over the top. In the end, it was quite enjoyable to make, but I can definitely say I have no intention of ever making another one in the future!
Since last week, I have been on a roll. I whipped up a sunglasses case (to be revealed soon) for the MMQG swap and I "sorta" finished quilting the plus quilt. I say "sorta" because I have not quilted the plus signs yet. I have an upcoming trip and I needed the binding on so I'd have something to hand stitch during my flight. I may add more quilting when I get back.

My next challenge... Figuring out what block to ask as Queen Bee for November. So many choices... For those of you who are part of online bees, how do you chose what block you want?
