Making Kites

 These are paper pieced kites.

 Making sure I trim as I go.  I don't want those oddly shaped scraps to have too much fabric behind them.

 Oops!  I stitched over the other seam.  Can't do that!

 Half the square put together.

 I was using scraps so I attached them to a long white piece for a strip set.

 My 4 squares all done and attached to the plain white square.  There was a backward one here also.  More ripping out to do.

 The kite and tail all done.


12 kites and tails all done.  Now to the store to buy sashing and border fabric.

  2. This is so adorable... thanks for including a link to the tutorial too! Another someday project for sure.

    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie
