Paper piecing

Linda at Paper Panache combines 2 of my favorite things...mystery and paper piecing. I don't know why I enjoy it so much, but I have enjoyed sewing these blocks for years.  Some have been made into mini quilts and given away,  but I have quite a collection of sewn blocks, and might one day turn them into a great kid's quilt. 
I challenged myself with mystery block #52 to paint all the fabric using Setacolor paints and here are the colours I made.  I worked away on piecing parts over the summer and since the new mystery has been posted (block #53), I can now show you my finished block.
Ta da...my pink flamingo!
