Bits and Paper Pieces

I made a rehearsal block for a big project I’m thinking of doing. It kind of looks like this:

Once I put a small border on it, it should be about an 18″ (finished) medallion. And, no, these are not the colors at all. I was just playing with some scraps. I doubled the size of this free paper piecing pattern by Hot Pink Peonies through Craftsy. Then I added the extra outline to make it look a little bit more like something I am sort of trying to imitate. I think I’m happy with the way it looks. So tomorrow I will start pressing the real fabric and maybe even cutting a bit.

My big accomplishment for today was to install the upgraded phone/modem from Comcast. I’m not sure why it was so important that we do this, but apparently Comcast thought it was. Since the one they sent is a wireless router also, we now have two wireless networks here at home. (No, I’m not taking my Time Capsule out of the mix. It’s my automatic backup.) The installation wasn’t very difficult, but I spent too much time trying to figure out how to turn off the wifi part of the modem. I wish they’d asked if I wanted wi-fi! Ah well.

Yes, I’m posting this very late.

Quilt on!
