Paper piecing

I have to say that while I like the idea of paper piecing, and I like the accuracy and final result of paper piecing, I despise the process!  To me, its slow and fidgety, uses more fabric than I would with regular piecing, and taking out the papers is on the bottom of my list as far as things I’d like to be doing :)

This week I also did the binding on vintage tiger lily quilt – its not so bad as I thought, and its hanging in the side hall.  It is nice to have something new and bright on the walls for  Spring.tiger lily quilted done

I began quilt-making in January 2001, as therapy following diagnosis a chronic autoimmune condition. I enjoy creating and exploring hand and machine applique, machine piecing, english paper piecing, machine quilting, and machine embroidery. I have been working with Electric Quilt for several years and I'm comfortable with just about very aspect of using EQ to design pieced, applique, and embroidery quilts. I'm an early retired Mom with two teenager and a son who'll be married in Fall '09. My husband is my biggest quilting supporter.
