Quick-Strip Paper Piecing »
InstructionsThis quilt incorporated Peggy Martin's strip paper piecing block - Sailor's Delight for the center and top and bottom half stars. The setting was inspired by a quilt pattern from Kim Diehl and the star fish blocks were my own design.
Type of item: Functional
100% Cotton Fabrics. The colors were all from a 24 set of coordinating fat quarters from Blank Fabric. The background was a combination of medium and light tone on tone grays.
What was your inspiration?
I've just started to learn to applique and I took Peggy Martin's strip paper piecing and I wanted to incorporate the two techniques into a project with traditional piecing.
What are you most proud of?
I had the set of coordinating 24 fat quarters from Blank Fabrics that I won at a guild meeting. I don't typically like really bright colors so using them ALL in the project was really a stretch for me.
