* paper-pieced geese

Posted on February 14th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

Paper piecing, why have I never tried you before?  I think when I’ve heard about it before, it was always kind of presented as tricky or hard, but goodness, this is my kind of sewing.  No fussy cutting, no squaring problems, none of the parts of patchwork that I normally struggle with.  Instead you just follow the numbers and cut amorphous scraps of fabric that get trimmed as you go.  I think the cleverness to the construction appeals to me too.  LOVE IT.


This is the Colorwheel Geese Block from Piece By Number, which I first saw at The Sometimes Crafter.  I think my tone balance is a little off with the orangey dominance on one half (meant it to go more naturally into the yellows), but oh well.  I’m going to make another one with cool colors and then do who-knows-what with them.

    Oh wow, that is amazingly beautiful! I just started quilting and simple patchwork, I guess I should look into this paper piecing thing if I could eventually make things like that. Great work!
