Juliet, who blogs at Tartan Kiwi, is a phenomenal paper-piecing pattern designer. I had the privilege of testing her paper-pieced Falcon pattern a while ago, for her Birds of New Zealand series.
We had a choice of three patterns to pick from and as you can see I chose the Hippo pattern.
Those large pieces of sky were very unwieldy let me tell you :)
There were a couple of blips along the way, when I lost track of which tiny bump was hippo and which was sky, but apart from that it was really straightforward to put together.
You can see all of Juliet's patterns in her Etsy store.
I am debating what to do with this block now that it is finished, so if you have any suggestions I would be delighted to hear them :)
