Lovin' that paper piecing!

That's my NEWEST delight. I was forced to do a little paper piecing on a quilt back in June - America the Beautiful - and realized that it was not as hard as I thought it would be, and was fun, too. I've now dived right in and am having a great time with little blocks and miniature quilts.

Here are a four finishes from last week:

This is called Indian Summer. It's designed by Wendy Vosters, and is from her book Paper-Pieced Mini-Quilts. It measures 9 1/2" x 12".

This is another Wendy Vosters mini-quilt, called Geese in the Air. It's from the same book as Indian Summer, and it measures 8" x 9".

This is little mini-quilt made from four Carol Doak squares (#G10) from her book Easy Machine Paper Piecing. It measures about 10" square.

While this one looks as big as the other three, it's only 4" square. It's #F11 from Carol Doak's Easy Machine Paper Piecing. I went ahead and turned it into a little coaster for my office manager.

Isn't paper piecing evilly easy/addictive? It's by far now my favourite way to quilt, though now I'm thinking of it, I haven't quilted since last fall...

Nice minis. I think paper piecing does have a place in the world:)
Hope you are enjoying the summer!

Lovely quilting and paper piecing girl. I love the fabrics for Geese in the Air.
I am not a fan of paper piecing but it looks so nice when you do it.
