So, when I stumbled on some paper piecing templates that looked like they would be perfect for some floral fabrics I'd been eager to start using....my mind was made up! The main part of the quilt will be paper pieced....I'll show you more at the end of this post.
I started my paper piecing practice with the scrappy part of this bee block.
My first completely paper pieced block is this one, called "Walking Man" and I love it. I love the batik and solids it is made with...so much so, I decided to make more and keep them for my self. And just in case you liked it....sorry partner!
Next, I decided on using this paper pieced Double Pinwheel block for my 1st quarter 3x6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee blocks.
So, to get a little extra practice in before the New York Beauty QAL begins I wanted to do some paper piecing that was a little more finicky or intricate. I thought the tea pot with some floral tea cups would be great practice and look so pretty!
From just a little practice you can see what is possible with paper piecing!
