This looovely quilt by Tina Seaside Stitches is my inspiration to tackle my next Paper Piecing Project PPP!
I have fallen in love with the greens and blues and aquas and limes of these batiks and well, frankly I am going to copy it - well, you know make it my own ;)
The pattern is on sale atm here! :
and I have my lovely pile of ice blues and deep forest greens and tropical aquas and chartreusy limes batiks - all had a throughly good wash and dry and ready for action.
Now I know a few friends had wanted to have a go too - Jeannette and Janine? Want to start one too?
This pattern really is a good one for Paper piecing beginners - just lots of good ol straight lines though you have to make sure you use plenty of fabric to cover the triangles.
Can I also recommend some Foundation Paper for the piecing - I am using Carol Doak's Foundation Paper (100 sheets) - she is the Dame when it comes to PP! I got mine here:
