Quick-Strip Paper Piecing »
Type of item: Home Decor
Batik fabrics, wool batting
What was your inspiration?
I am a beginner quilter but have always loved colour and admired the NYB block. A couple of weeks before I started the course, I went to a quilt show and picked out a few batik fabrics. I had never bought batiks before and they were on sale. I didn't have a project in mind. I have been so lucky. I think the colours went together well. No auditioning, just luck!
What are you most proud of?
I never thought I would be able to paper piece. I'm sure I could never have learned from a book. Peggy's videos make it so easy. I don't enjoy carefully cutting out lots and lots of small pieces of fabric, so this method is perfect for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you haven't paper pieced before, try it. It's addictive!
