In Flight Quilt-Along - Third Linky Party

I've just spent a very enjoyable hour visiting all the blocks that were linked up to the second linky party- wow you lot are a talented bunch.

I love seeing how the fabric choices affect the finished design and the way that many of you are making the designs your own- keep up the good work! I am also loving hearing that many of you are finding paper piecing a bit less intimidating now.

Before I go any further, the winner of the second linky party is Wendy. Please email me and I will get your prize sent out to you as quickly as possible.

Another thing that I should mention is that I am beginning to write a question and answer post about paper piecing. If there is anything that you want to know, then leave your question in the comments and I'll do my best to address it.

You will find the linky for the next two blocks at the bottom of this post. As always, a winner will be chosen at random and will win the following prize:
The winners choice of 2 Tartankiwi patterns

To be in the draw to win an Oakshott Charm Pack and two Tartankiwi patterns of your choice, please post a link to any of first six blocks of the quilt-along (on condition that you did not link them up to the previous link-ups). I will be checking and any repeat blocks will be deleted.

 The Linky will stay open until 8:00am on April 7th (NZT)

Don't forget that my awesome sponsors have donated some amazing prizes for the end of the quilt-along: Hopefully these moutwatering prizes will help to keep you motivated until the end.

  1. One question I'd love for you to cover - any tips on what to do when the first couple of bits of fabric on a pattern piece are tiny, so the seam between them is really short (e.g. on section A of the buzzard)? I've been having problems with those tiny starting seams, because there's so few stitches that it's really easy for the paper to perforate along the little seam so that the fabric gets loose and slides out of alignment before I've attached the next piece. And of course, because the fabric pieces are so small, it's really hard to use pins to hold them in place. Help?


I love your comments and do my best to answer them.
