First Paper Piecing Project


Craftsy

I seem to be in a major learning mode - the stars must be aligned! Love it!!!

Since I'm addicted to learning, I've become a very good customer of Craftsy's. I've bought more classes than I have time to do, but since I can watch them anytime, it suits me. 

Since I was intrigued by my initial trial of paper piecing in April, I thought I would learn more about it. Of course I can't just follow along with the course. I watched the first four lessons of the Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing with Carol Doak and then went off on my own. In the course resources, there are tons of 3 inch paper piecing blocks to make. I chose three that were fun and that might appeal to my niece and then went to it.

My first block was these cute crayons. That was a lot of fun. I got lots of practice since I cut it too small and had no seam allowance left to sew it to anything....oppps!

My next piece was the framed picture. I love how it turned out.

I then pieced the bird house. How cute is that?

I framed all of the blocks and Voila! A wall hanging for Anna.
