Green Dreams

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I was actually able to make the block even with a failing sewing machine! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take you time, don't put yourself on a time limit. I find that I relax and don't stress if I am not on a time crunch in my head! Try it! It is really a lot of fun!! And Peggy is an exceptional instructor! You'll love her course on paper piecing.

What you will need

  • 100 % Cotton Fabrics I had on hand at home. Peggy Martin's Paper Piecing course Regular sewing notions
  • scissors
  • thread
  • rotary cutters
  • quilting rulers
  • pins etc. Downloads of Peggy Martin's patterns for paper piecing
  • "Pinwheel Polka"
