Today, for My Creative space I've decided to post my English paper piecing that Amy taught us at Brown Owls, AND the baby quilt I've been working on (as I've missed several "creative space" days!)
Here's my very first paper pieced shape. I still need to remove the pink tacking thread.
I thoroughly enjoyed paper piecing. It's time consuming but you end up with perfect pieces and you it's a "take anywhere" kind of craft. I bought a great jelly roll at the Craft fair, so I think I'm going to use it to make a whole "grandmas garden" quilt done by hand.
Then there's this quilt top that I've finished.
Amy's quilt was my inspiration for this one as I finally let loose with my quilting (rather than having everything perfectly even). It was meant to be for my soon to be niece or nephew but I think it's just too bright for a newborn bubba. So I'm going to finish it and put it away for a while then give it to them when the baby's 1 or 2 and they can use it as a bright floor mat or something. I love it, but when I saw the colours of the room (pale greenish and cream) I decided to change my mind.
Plus they love Peter Rabbit and I found a whole heap of Beatrix Potter fabric at the fair:)
EDIT: I was taught to paper peice by this lovely girl whose tutorial can be found here
