Last week saw the last of the patterns in the series for Foundation Paper Piecing For The Terrified, so this week I’m going to highlight the stellar work done by the girls who bravely sewed along and uploaded to the Flickr Group.
Taryn leapt in first with some Amy Butler inspired courthouse steps:
While Hadley had some fun lining up some trees:
And Fiona went all the way to make an entire cushion!
In week 2 Linda had some fun with some fussy cut centres:
And so did Marg:
In week 3 Taryn had fun stringing people along:
As did Hadley:
Then in week 4 Fiona eked out the remaining fabric from her SHQ quilt to get some circling geese for a cushion:
While Juliet finally got to embrace the geese she’d been admiring for a while:
By week 5 I think I’d freaked a few people out, but Hadley pulled it off with a great colour combo:
And Linda turned it all on its head!
Finally, for week 6, Fiona braved it right to the end with a finish within the last week:
I’m so proud of everyone that took part and embraced paper piecing, and I know a few have tried out some other patterns that they’ve seen while the series has been going on, with great success :o)
I’ll be back with a tutorial on making a New York Beauty block on the 16th of April, and I’m hoping in the next few weeks to round up some tutorials on how to rehome those orphaned blocks. In the meantime, you can check out Sunni’s recently hosted series for orphaned Farmer’s Wives blocks, which should give you a good step for a hint :o)
These brave souls did some wonderful blocks and should all be proud of themselves. One of these days I'll break down and do some paper piecing but not quite yet. Enjoy your week. Hugs
you have inspired many to follow your lead.
Aw, those are delightful! What a good teacher 🙂
I was going to sew along as I adore paper piecing, but I'm a bit swamped at the moment 🙁
You did a great job teachering and everyone's blocks look great! 🙂
Some really nice stuff on here guys. Of course Katy was also producing wee Jock, and you can visit his blog now here http://peripatetic-jock.blogspot.co.uk/ Now i won't promise daily updates from India, but I'll see if I can add a few. Ill also link you to my website for my gallery which I'll try to update as I go.
WOW they all look fantastic 🙂
WOW they all look fantastic 🙂
Gee, thank you – the rocket is on my huge to do pile this week!
they all look so great! i really love that grey, orange, robin blue block!
ooooo thought mine looked different :))) will have to have another go :))
They all look wonderful, they're so top of my "want to do" list!
They all look wonderful. I especially like the tree block.
What an amazingly clever lot you are! xx
You are a fabulous teacher, I really enjoyed making the blocks so far. I am going to try and make the rest of them soon. You definitely stopped me from being terrified. Thank you. Look at the beautiful blocks that every one produced, fantastic!
While I didn't manage the time to do your series I can honestly say I never could have managed my ice cream cone block for Brit Bee without you. Thank you!
So good to see these ladies conquer paper-piecing. The blocks look great!
Thanks so much for being such a great teacher! I'm absolutely in love with paper piecing now! I still have to finish the last two blocks. Well, I did the rocket one, but it was a day after I sewed my finger and I was a little terrified of getting my finger anywhere near the needle! My rectangle windows turned out to be more like parallelograms 😀
Thanks again for your great and clear instructions. I have already done some more paper piecing and am now planning what to do next… the sky's the limit!
