Paper Piecing: new class


Just a quick post to mention that I decided to teach a paper piecing class up in Oakland at A Verb for Keeping Warm.

Paper piecing is something that I have loved for ages.  I'm really addicted to the 'for free' perfection of it.

We'll be making a hot pad that you can use as a holiday gift. 

If you cannot join us because you are not local to the bay area, feel free to give me links to your blog posts about paper piecing you have done.  I love to see what else is going on out there.

One quick question for you - has anybody seen the Richard Scarry fabric in local quilt shops?  I'm looking to get my hands on some (at PIQF maybe?).

I do a lot of paper piecing. I think it is wonderful skill that every quilter should try at some point. I am currently working on a diamond log cabin wall hanging. The layout is concentric stars and I am doing it in various shades of Taupe (gray, blue, tan, green and pearl). Just have the center done, but it's looking lovely. I will send you a photo when it is done.
