It came together much easier than I could have hoped, especially since I am not a paper piecing fan. Except I was disappointed that the curve of the pillow distorts the shape of the tardis and ruins the 3D look. It works better as a flat quilt block, I think.
|I like the fabric I chose for the timey-wimey-outerspace- a Tula Pink print.|
|I used a tone on tone Pearl Bracelet print in dark grey for the back.|
|All those tiny seams look so much more impressive from the back!|
- paper piecing can be totally worth it
- some blocks don't work well for pillows because of the curvature of the pillow
- use dark thread when piecing dark fabric to dark fabric, otherwise any stretch to the seam shows the light coloured thread- my laziness about switching out thread bit me in the butt on this one
- careful pinning with tiny pins is key, but pinning it from the front while looking how it will fit together is even better (I got that tip from my quilty friend C)
And I will paper piece again. But only if the outcome will be really worth it to me!
