Bird Teaser Rule 8

Here is a portion of the paper pieced portion of my block. I have never done paper piecing on such a technical pattern, so this was a real learning experience for me. I am pretty happy with it though.

I have news! For those of you who haven't heard, we got our mission call this week. We are going to be temple missionaries in the Washington DC Temple!!!! We enter the MTC on September 19 and will be serving for 12 months. Not sure yet how that will affect my quilting. Since we are driving to the mission, Gary thinks I can take my sewing machine and keep up with the quilt on P days. We'll see!!!

For those of you who are not LDS, you may not have known that retired couples can be Mormon missionaries, but we can, and we are very excited. To translate the initials, MTC is Missionary Training Center, and P day is preparation day, or our day off.

I just love that material. Your paper piecing looks great. I still don't know what I am going to do, so no teaser yet.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't paper pieced before! It looks good from what I can see!

It looks good. It will be fun to see the whole thing since I'm not sure what you have there.

How excited you must be about the call. And Washington, DC! What a beautiful temple in which to serve - not that there are any ugly ones.
