So I have been working a quilt from the She Who Sews panel. It has 15 squares and I want a square quilt not so oblong.
So I thought I would add a square to make it more like this.
Which as you can see in the bottom left my start to making a paper pieced square.
Here are some of my experiences with paper piecing...never cut until it is ironed in place, yeas shortening the stitch makes the paper perf better but it becomes harder to undo stitches. Uses up scraps, makes a bloody mess.As soon as I can I will link to the blog that I used the paper piecing pattern from. She had some wonderful tutorials and I think maybe I bite off too much for a newbie to paper piecing.
