I finished this pillow a couple of weeks ago but forgot to snap a picture of it before I took it down to our local county fair.
I am new to paper piecing, but I think I am hooked! I LOVE the way it looks, but I hate waste (it makes me twitch to see wasted fabric), and there is some waste involved with paper piecing. I tried to cut pieces that were JUST big enough, but ended up frustrated when they didn't fold over right. So I had to take a deep breath and just cut nice big pieces. And, I survived! The final product is definitely worth it.
This pattern is from The Paper-Pieced Home by Penny Layman
And guess what? It won 2nd place at the fair. Whoop!
This was my first time entering anything at the fair. I entered 5 items and all 5 placed. Yay!!
I'll try to get pictures of all the winning items up this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
