Row Robin - Mardi Gras

Working on a new quilt row for the 2011 Row Robin. This person's theme is Mardi Gras! I have already completed 1 block, golden wedding ring.

I really took my time with this one even though it is a paper pieced block I wanted to try and make my fabric last. This seems to be my biggest issue with paper piecing, so much wasted fabric. So I measured each section then added 1/2 inch and blocked it. I then created templates for each section and cut the fabric. I am saving this block and all of the pieces in a clear plastic envelope in case I want to do it again. All of the hard work has already been done!

I really like the black with the color, it really makes the color POP.
