The first lot of news I wanted to share was that just before I left for Australia my fabulous local quilt store – Modern Domestic – asked me to teach introductory classes on paper piecing. My immediate response was YES… of course…I want to corrupt/bring to the darkside as many quilters as I can.
I love paper piecing and love the amazing results you can get from the process. It initially surprised me that so many people had not tried this technique (I wrongly thought that everyone started with paper piecing and went from there!).
So for this class I designed a 16 inch star block, which can easily be turned into a pillow.
It really is a pretty easy pattern but very effective. This sample uses some of my Liberty bits and pieces, a splash of Kona cotton and Essex linen for the background. I loved how this sample turned out… but I did not stop there. I also made…
A Pearl Bracelet version…of course.
If you are interested in the class you can find all the details on Modern Domestic’s website…JUST CLICK HERE. My first class is next week, and we plan to offer this class throughout next year.
