New Portable Project
After working on the English Paper Piecing pin cushion project for the "Christmas in July" morning I have really caught the bug for this easy form of hand piecing. I wanted a new portable project and had a collection of contemporary print fabrics that I have been keen to use for some time so I have chosen the "Pies and Tarts" quilt project by Sue Daley Designs to meet this need.
Today I have been busy cutting segments which I have colour coordinated and placed in small snap lock bags with the paper pieces ready for glue basting.
I then used a glue pen to baste all the segments for a block ready for stitching-
After the pieces are stitched I will carefully peel back the seam allowances on the fabric and remove the papers ready for the next lot of blocks. The pies will be appliqued on to background squares - at the moment I am thinking of using a variety of yellows which is a favourite colour.
