I have a long list of things I want to sew and quilt when I can get back to my machine. Some paper piecing is near the top of that list!
I gave paper piecing a go last year. It is not a skill that comes naturally to me and I made lots of mistakes, but I really enjoyed and I loved the results.
I was excited to get a copy of A Paper Pieced Garden by Maaike Bakker and Francoise Maarse.
The daffodils are just out in my garden so I would love to give the daffodil block a go in some modern fabrics.
Not all the blocks are flowers. There are all sorts of things you would find in a garden including a squirrel, birds and cherries.
I love this quilt with mushrooms and leaves.
I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to open the book wide enough and get it flat enough to copy the patterns, but there is a wide enough border around each pattern and I have pressed my book really flat without the spine cracking or falling apart so I don't think it will be a problem.
Full Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from Martingale free of charge. All opinions are my own.
