during Lumos in Las Vegas, July 2006.
While I love all crafts, paper piecing is my One True Craft. (bold, capitalized, giant font ONE TRUE CRAFT). I love designing, making and sharing. The ideas come faster than I could ever possibly get them all down.
While paper piecing is definitely a quilting technique, quilting is definitely not just for quilts. I love using quilt elements in bags, pillows, clothing and art pieces.
I thought it would be fun to do a photo round up of some of the bags in which I’ve used paper piecing and other quilting elements.
All bags and block patterns were designed by me. Many of the patterns are available for free on sewhooked (see links below).
