Using Texts Fabric Block 1

Blocks using  Text in the Fabric  Block #1

Today is the day to officially post my blocks for  During Quiet Times  Texting While Sewing Contest!  I am a beginner at paper piecing, but have fallen in love with all that you can make with it.  And I can't believe how imaginative people are with their paper pieced designs!  Go on over to look at all of the beautiful work!

The contest  guidelines were to make 12  inch blocks, incorporating text fabric in creative ways.
I knew what I wanted to make as soon as I saw this pretty fabric on  
It was called French Post Cream  by Michael Miller.  I loved the romantic colors and style of it immediately.  Then I remembered seeing a rosebud paper pieced pattern online. It was a design by Cat Magraith, which I enlarged.

I want to make it a mini wall hanging someday soon.

I had so much fun making this block!    Part 2 to follow....
I'm off to my sewing room!
