Paper Piecing

Paper Piecing is one of those techniques a quilter either loves or hates.  I enjoy paper piecing, although I don’t do it very often.

I came across a paper pieced pattern that I had planned to make for a dear friend.  I finally sat down to work on it before Christmas.  I didn’t meet the Christmas deadline (ugh!), but it was gifted shortly after.

The pattern is for a small wallhanging, so some of the sections are tiny.

It always takes me some time to get my head wrapped around a foundation pieced project.  You have to think backwards!  But once I’ve adjusted, sewing is quick.

And then there’s all that trimming.

Yup, lots of tiny pieces.  But foundation piecing is the best way to handle all those pieces.

There’s quite the pile of trimmings at the end of the project.

And – Ta Dah! – a cute little wallhanging with the best message.

You Rock!

Thanks to Sam Hunter and Hunter’s Design Studio for a fun pattern.
