I made a discovery today

I hate paper piecing. This is probably the only paper pieced block I will ever do:

The actual construction isn't so bad, but if I had to tear the paper off the back of any more blocks I would go absolutely batshit crazy. I do very much like the yellow and blue combo and will draft some more blocks that are NOT paper pieced to go with this one :)

I also made a journal cover for the Karate Kid's friend's birthday party tomorrow:


Bright colors and some sparkles on the fabric, metallic quilting in straight lines. She writes, so hopefully she'll like it.

That blue and yellow looks tedious, but pretty. Maybe one of these days I'll have to pull out the sewing machine and try quilting. I was in the fabric store not long ago and they had so much stuff it looked like you had to buy to do it--or is it like baby stuff--lots of stuff to buy, not much you really need?
