You know I just joined Pinterest about two weeks ago? Well in that time I have noticed a trend - I love paper pieced projects. I've even created a PP board and have become obsessed with pinning every PP project I come across, I'm even hunting them down! Here's a selection from my Flickr Favourites:
So did you also know that the latest issue of Fat Quarterly is running a special on paper piecing!! I grabbed myself a copy this morning but now that I have the issue in my hot little hands (ie on my desktop), I thought that I need a little kick-in-the-butt to actually get around to making the projects (and there are some really great ones including those ice-skates above, a teapot cosy, pillows, potholder, mini quilts and more). Working through all these projects is a great way to learn these techniques (English Paper Piecing, Freezer Paper Piecing and Foundation Paper Piecing). I really want to learn these techniques because these blocks are just so cute!
So do you think it would be fun to have a little sew-a-long paper piecing style? I've never really been part of a SAL/QAL yet, I follow them and I always put off joining because I don't have the right fabric, don't want the commitment, too much stuff going on.... yada, yada, yada. (Let alone actually host one!!!) Yikes, what am I saying here? Of course, there needs to be interest in joining along? I think a support group is what I need to stay focussed. I'm thinking something along the lines of the FWQAL where we share our finished projects on our blogs and in a Flickr group and pace it out so that it's not too much commitment? How about leaving me a comment and if there's interest then I'll get organising.
