Paper piecing is it a technique? or is ART?
But I will tell you ever since I saw Paper piecing
by the artist in her own right Annie....
I think she did it for me...
Her Paper Piecing is ART...
I became obsessed with wanting to do this with ease...
I tried her method and I tried many paper piecing artists
methods...BUT it was not until I saw Elaine 's
post here on Sew We Quilt..
that I thought I can do this with Freezer Paper...
That weekend I headed out to our retreat and no other than Christine,
my dear quilter extraordinaire, guided me in making Elaine's method
with freezer paper and my ADD a Quarter ruler...
( Kelly has some)
That I finally got it....Christine certainly shared my joy too lol.
I don't think I could have made these cereal bowls had
it not been for this ruler..YEAH ADD a quarter...
and a few of my dearest online friends..
SEE nobody does it alone..not even me... lol
Sew the bowls yes my chintz bowls...I ordered
this out of print book called Cups and Saucers
by a Dutch lady and even though it is from 2000,
and the colors were all dark ..her patterns are magnificent..
( publisher Martingale and Co)
I recently purchased this book from Martingale & Co.

Choose from eight quilt patterns and turn your blocks into small wall quilts, or make a sampler quilt using all 13 block designs.
What is nice too, is you can purchase this in the download version...did not have to wait for it...
