Taking the fear out of paper piecing
Paper piecing ---the minute I hear that, I quake in fear. BUT Ms. Vosters has written a book that just might change all that. Instead of trying to learn this technique on full sized quilts, why not start small? I mean that¿s how we learned to walk --- taking baby steps! This book provides 17 small projects all done by paper piecing. There is even a ¿picture-scape¿! And the templates are full sized in the book so all you need to do is copy them and you have your templates ready to go. Six pages of basic instructions tell you about the fabric, batting, how to paper piece and finishing techniques. Interspersed in this section are lots of tips so make sure to take the time to read this section before starting. Then pick out your projects and start sewing. Each project has a skill level at the very start giving you an idea of just how involved the project will be. There is a material and cutting list, along with assembling and finishing instructions. There is a color photo and a paragraph about the particular project. If paper piecing is something you have always wanted to learn or, as in my case, have been afraid to try, this is a book to guild you step-by-step to achieving the skills to do it. Remember, we all started out walking by baby steps and making mini quilts will be the baby steps you need to learn paper piecing.
