My paper piecing adventure has finally begun..it started with the paper and then I decided I wanted the ruler!
I have paper pieced before but it had been years…so I did spend some online time refreshing my memory and also discovering new tools etc…
Carol Doak taught the first quilt class that I took…she was teaching at Quilt Canada and a new friend suggested that we take a class… that was in 1991! I never finished the project, however I met Alva in that class who really took me under her wing and mentored me for years.
I highly recommend Carols paper, I know that there are other ways and means but her paper made it easier.
I watched a YouTube video by Berene Campbell on the appliqué portion of this project which was well worth the time. As a long time Longarm quilter I have a pretty good stash of thread so found just the right colour and weight.
I thought that I would start out with mine to make sure that I knew what I was doing before I embark on the blocks for the seven others in my group. It was fun and will be on the table this week to complete.
