Craftsy Block of the Month 2013 with Laura Nownes »
InstructionsIt does speed up the process as you don't need to press at every stage. I'm going to make 4 small panels instead of one quilt.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Mod, Eco-Friendly
Magazine paper - not having a patchwork ruler, I'm using a regular ruler and marking the widths then cutting on a cutting mat with rotary cutter. Also not enough fabrics of similar weights, so I'm using magazine paper, to practice cutting and seaming.
What was your inspiration?
I have quite a stack of old magazines, and as the quilt design can be divided into 4 sections with a bit of jiggling of piece placements, its a great and cheap way to learn cutting and precise seaming.
Haven't worked out how to do the quilting yet, may just have to settle for free motion stitching over the finished panels.
What are you most proud of?
Bringing new meaning to paper piecing
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Its a great way to try new ideas without wasting precious fabric.
