I’ve been thinking about paper piecing. Not sure if I will like it but I do have lots of scraps.

I tried a simple one in January for the first time and it was fun! I liked the fact that I didn’t have to precisely cut a piece-a bit big was good enough! I can see that it would get addicting!

Most places that sell paper pieced designs, also provide a tutorial with a practice piece.

I love it for working on the components when I travel, or am just chilling. It is a great take-along project for lots of occasions. Waiting room, tv time, picking kids up after practice, endless list!

There are different types of paper piecing. One that you stitch your fabric to the paper for precise points.it is called foundation paper piecing. The other is English paper piecing where you make shapes from small shapes and join them together to create a larger design. Foundation is done on the machine English can be done either way. Lots of information on each on the internet. I live EPP.

It's actually really easy. It's like color by numbers only with fabric.

I find I really like paper-piecing. it gives such a nice finished block. it's messy, and putzy, because you have all these pieces of fabric to layer on, and between each piece you need to stop and cut down the seam allowance before sewing the next piece on. Just make sure you are cutting the correct piece (SEAM ALLOWANCE SIDE!) not the side of fabric you want to keep!

I am doing my second miniature. It is time consuming but very precise and beautiful, therefore.
