I participated in a mini quilt swap between the Atlanta and Ireland Modern Quilt Guilds that just wrapped up.
This is the quilt I made for my lovely partner, Eva.
I was a bit intimidated in my pairing because she has such great taste and talent!
I stalked her flickr favorites and soon realized that we have very similar likes.
She had a lot of paper pieced patterns ( Ringo Pie-style) marked as favorites, and I’ve really wanted to give that style of piecing a try.
I am so glad I decided to give it a go. What an absolute thrill to complete!
This is the type of project that gives you such a sense of satisfaction. It’s like putting together a puzzle and as each section would come together I was straight up jumping around with excitement. ha! I’m a total nerd!
I would have never thought I could make something so intricate. Paper piecing is an amazing technique.
The pattern is from the Sew Out Loud quilt along from a few months ago. All free patterns that are blow-you-away amazing!
Her post includes lots of tutorial links that help you get started paper piecing with freezer paper templates.
The quilt is still en route, so I hope I got it right!
Mine has arrived from Ireland and I need to get it photographed to share with you.
It’s beautiful! (Thank you Eva!)
Thanks for visiting,
