In good trading post fashion, we did tray something new and out of our comfort zone again. This time around we were joined by another fellow blogger, Morgane from Bear, Dolly and Moi, that graciously agreed to school us in the art of paper piecing. Both Amie and myself were a bit nervous but very excited to try out this technique. Morgane made it easy and fun. She brought a pattern selection and great tips/expertise for a successful first experience.

Euuuhh I swear this mess will turn out good
See Amie proudly showing her completed bunny
Yay! We made it!
Not bad for a first time :)
Now I'm working on turning my bunny into a small Easter quilted wall hanging.
