Hi and Welcome to Day 6 of the College Days Blog Hop hosted by the wonderful Soma of Whims and Fancies! I was so excited when Soma asked me to be part of her upcoming blog hop. I said yes before I even knew what the hop's theme.
For college, I went to Carnegie Mellow University over in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for Chemical Engineering. When I heard the theme of the hop I immediately thought of the late nights studying and all of the 101, 201, etc classes we all took.
There are some paper piecing super stars in this hop and I have been in awe of their designs. Being a new paper piece designer, I designed a very beginner friendly College 101 block. There are two versions of the block:
Version 1 - Block with paper pieced 101 and embroidered "College"
Version 2 - Block with paper pieced 101 (for those that do not wish to add the embroidery.
The block (both versions are included in the pattern) can be downloaded for free on Craftsy right here.
For my version, I used Kona White as the background, some shot cotton (sorry I don't remember the color) for the letters, and some gray thread for the embroidery.
Please head over to Whims and Fancies to check out the rest of the patterns!
