Paper Piecing

I am working on a Noah's Ark quilt for my sister's new baby. Here are the flamingos:

These are from the bookA Quilter's Ark by Margaret Rolfe. I've had this book for a long time and this project is the first time I've used the patterns in the book. I'm enlarging all the animals by 50% so the finished animal blocks will be 6" square instead of 4". I've also made some zebras that I'll show pictures of next time.

I'm having a hard time being motivated to work on this, but I need to get it done. So... I'll set a goal now to finish another pair of animals this week. I'm also going to sew up another maternity t-shirt and show pictures of the one I already made. I just got a box of fabric in the mail and have a few pieces of maternity clothing I need to make for myself.
