Yesterday I had quite a surprise. Denise from For The Love of Geese reached out to me and asked if I did paper piecing. I have not, but I’ve watched some videos and read about it. It is something I’ve wanted to try but have not done so yet.
Now I have a reason to try. She asked me to test her pattern and review it on my blog. I’m honored. This is the first time someone has asked me to do anything like this. The quilt is stunning. I noticed it during the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
The pattern is available for purchase on Craftsy, but since I agreed to test it she sent me the pattern. Here’s a picture of the quilt for you to see.
I’ve downloaded the pattern and I’m reading through it. It looks quite difficult for my skill level, but I am up for the challenge. I asked her for any hints that might help me. She wrote up a blog showing the tools she uses while paper piecing and hints to go along with it.
So I’m off. I’ll do further research on paper piecing and give it a try on some scraps I have around here while I come up with a vision for my quilt.
I am asking my friends and readers to also share any hints they may have regarding paper piecing that might help me. If there are any tutorials out there you think are good please share with me.
It should be a fantastic journey. Stay tuned. I’ll post about my progress along the way.
Well that’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
