Have you ever tried paper piecing? I just recently tried it - and surprisingly - it's so fun! (I don't know why I thought it wouldn't be.)
I might have enjoyed it even more, due to how good it felt to sit down at my machine, since I was able to finally put down my paintbrush. =)
I watched a few how-to videos, but when I tried it, I would get so confused with which direction the fabric would be facing, and how to figure out (from the back) if the paper was over the correct spot, and if it would cover the desired area once it was flipped backwards! But then I watched a tutorial (here) from Ellison Lane, it made perfect sense to me! Loved her method! And it made me fall in love with paper piecing. Well - that, and this fabulous "70's Geese" pattern by Diane at From Blank Pages (available here on Craftsy).Ashley just moved into a new house which has a room just for her sewing stuff - and it has lots of bare walls. I figured she needed to know how much she is appreciated (couldn't we all use more of that?). And...she needed some help filling up all those fabulous bare walls. =)
This pattern comes in several sizes. I used the 18" pattern for this - and made it up into a mini-quilt.
However, I'm thinking this would make a fabulous throw pillow, as well.
I may or may not be making another one sometime soon. You take a guess. =)
