Prompting Paper Piecing
This week's prompt is a little different, instead of a word, Jaye has asked us to post about something we have seen and been inspired by.
I have been inspired by Kathy of Kathy's Quilts who did a piece called the Internal Sun.
I absolutely love this piece and it has inspired me to try some paper piecing myself.
I decided to work on a New York Beauty block. First, for prompt #50, I did this black and white block instead of my usual doodle.
Tendinitis makes it very difficult for me to remove the paper from the back so I thought I'd see if I could find something to use that did not have to be removed. I used a product called "trace a pattern" that is sold at Fabricland stores. It is inexpensive, easy to see through, is lightweight and soft enough to be left in a quilt.
I cut the point sections out of a paper version so that I could audition the fabrics I thought I would use
You will just have to wait for my next post to see what these are going to become.
