Paper piecing is great for beginner quilters
I taught my first quilt class last Saturday on paper piecing.
I love this quilting method because it allows you to get really sharp points without templates or insanely accurate quarter-inch seams. It’s kind of like sewing by numbers and its really easy once you get the hang of it.
I was teaching the class because I’m in charge of designing a tree for the Festival of Trees. It’s going to be filled with ornaments made from fabric. The hope is that if more people know how to make paper pieced Christmas ornaments, hopefully I won’t have to make them all myself this November.
Here’s the blocks my students came up with. They did a great job for beginners.
