Allium for Paper Piecing

PAPERWORK MONDAYS

As you may have heard me complain…I do paperwork every Monday…bills, filing,phone calls.   I allow myself t0 blog or stitch only when my other “Inbox” is empty…UGH!

Over the last several weeks, our friend Peggy has changed the meaning of PAPERWORK MONDAYS:

—She has created several original Paper-Pieced quilting patterns from The Inbox Jaunt photos!  Now “Paperwork” is Fun and Creative!  (And some of our Mondays are a lot more fun!)

YEAH PEGGY!

Allium Paper Pieced, PatternThis week, Peggy transformed the Silent Sunday Allium photo in to a gorgeous, modern Paper Piecing Pattern (Download and Print 12 Pages)  HERE

AlliumShe even designed a full-sized quilt for us with the Alliums in the center…

Best of all, she created a Color Chart using Robert Kaufman KONA solids–(my favorite for free motion quilting, too!)

NOTES FROM PEGGY

  • This time the colors are all Kona Solids and labeled with the Kona names and Robert Kaufman codes.
  • The pattern can be adjusted to any size, but the full-sized line drawing is for a finished piece 24″ x 33″.
  • Since the design has circles, quilters may choose from two techniques: applique, of course; or machine sewing circles as shown in
  • Dale Fleming’s book Pieced Curves So Simple and her video instruction at this link Easy Circle Quilt Blocks

NOTES FROM LORI

For more information about Paper Piecing, Peggy Recommends the tutorial HERE.

I know I say this every week, but this is my favorite!  or maybe it’s The Heron, or Easter Sunrise, or In the Garden or At the Window or Hydrangeas…..

There is a lot of free motion quilting opportunities with this quilt…

Don’t you wish there were more hours in a day (and more energy, too!)

LOTS MORE QUILTING THIS WEEK…
