I am happy to present a new sponsor – Quilt Art Designs a new paper piecing digital magazine created by Janeen van Niekerk. There are 15 neat designs included in the first issue.
If you love paper piecing…..you will love this new magazine! I just
got the first issue and I’m working on the walrus!
I have only done a few paper piecing projects and it had been a while since I did one so I’m a little slow……but I’m getting there! Here are all my pieces ready to put together. Notice my crayons…..I used them to help me keep track of my colors.
There is also a color sheet and a number sheet that you can print out.
The very first section I pieced was the eye (before I used the crayons) when I laid out my pieces something didn’t look right. I don’t know if you can see it but….there is a little teeny, tiny triangle piece and that was supposed to be the white…..I had to remake this section.
Am I the only one who seems to make a mess when I paper piece? I have little pieces of fabric and paper everywhere…..including the floor! Messy but worth it when finished.
Here is my finished piece, can you see the white glint in the eye now? Perfect! My piece is a little wonky so I will just straighten it up a bit. I already know what I’m going to use this piece for……I’ll show you soon!
