Bird of paradise

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is my very first paper piecing and turned out as colorful and fun as I hoped for + always great diving into new knowledge! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a postcard or something really stiff, - I rather foolishly just folded a paper. I would also use something else than copy paper... Despite folding, refolding etc it did put a lot of strain on the stitches. Turned out ok but I will def buy the proper stuff.

What you will need

  • pure cotton fabric

Q&A with Emmari

Carol Doak asked:
Very well done!
Emmari answered:
Thank you so much! :) I'm going to make myself a new needle book with this first effort and buy proper paper and that tiny add a quarter-ruler, - I made due with my large quilers' ruler but the correct tools will highten this already fun experience. Now back to watch more!

When I see perfect points like this is when I truly appreciate paper piecing. This particular block is a useful one that I like very much and one that that I do use when I do some paper piecing.
Emmari answered:
Thank you! I'm going to make this block again but with the right materials, I'm sure that will make a lot of difference. ;)

Gorgeous, vibrant colours.
Emmari answered:
Thank you so much! As a sort of newbie ( have been sewing for merely 4 years despite my age... ) I'm still thrilled by the difference choices of fabric makes! :D
