I’ve wanted to do a paper pieced quilt for a while now…but whoever invented this technique was nuts! I’m using thin, easy to tear paper but I can’t see through it worth a crap once I have some pieces sewn on, wish I could print an exact reverse image on it. I’m going to try tracing the lines onto the back before I do the next 1/4 square. I also don’t have much room around the edges of this first one, I’m into my 1/4” seam allowance a little too close. Ugh! Guess I’ll start all over.
I still have some Christmas quilts to finish & the kids bags (they’re half done anyway) but I won’t see them for 2 more weeks so I have time…needed to do a little “me” sewing but those 9 tiny pieces above felt like homework, lol. I’m going to edit my 2011 UFO list to include this quilt, at least a few squares a month, it’ll probably take me all year but if I can do it it’ll open up a whole new range of available quilting patterns.
