Hugs and Kisses 2014, Opening your heart in PAPER PIECING!

If you love Paper Piecing and you are aware of the paper piecing talent of
Soma from Whims and Fancies you may have your heart full for this blog hop in February. We worked together on this design for a unique paper piecing pattern that could grow from a runner, banner to a full size quilt. Soma has a superb talent of creating beautiful patterns. This is without a doubt, a simple but beautiful design. She never disappoints!

The pattern is well illustrated and consists of 3 components,  hugs, kisses and heart with arrow…
YOU can use 1, 2 or all 3 in your design. We provide you with many examples. You can make it out of any fabric of your choosing.

Sample 1st page
