Weekend Warriors: Paper-Pieced Mini Quilts

When it comes to paper piecing, accurate points and clean lines are all a part of the design. Though they often look complex, paper-pieced mini quilts are actually quite doable to sew up over a weekend. We recommend taking one day for coloring your layout and cutting fabrics. After the planning stage, you’ll be ready to paper piece your mini quilt in just one or two sewing sessions!
