Good Morning, Quilters!

I have a real treat for you today!  Our friend, Peggy has turned one of the Seamstresses in Fine Art images by Henri Lebasque into a paper piecing pattern.  She is offering it FREE to readers of The Inbox Jaunt!

Henri Lebasque

In Peggy’s Words: 

Lori, here is a complete file for the Lebasque paper piecing project.

The women in the Lebasque painting are the image of friendship and relaxation. There is nothing I like better than spending time with others, not speaking much, but working on an individual projects. The peacefulness of those hours are a real joy.

The finished piece is 24″ tall by 22″ wide, but may, of course, be resized if needed. There is a color chart, a single page line drawing, and an exploded diagram visually showing the piecing sequence. There are just over 100 individual fabric pieces. The full sized pattern prints on 9 sheets of paper, to be taped together. I’ve included some text instructions and as always, I’m willing to help people over hurdles if they need more guidance.

I love Cristy Fincher’s paperless piecing method.  She teaches this method in her video, Pain Free Foundation Piecing.  Cristy is an excellent teacher who lays out each step in the process simply and clearly.  Her teaching style is clear and methodical.  All you need is a little freezer paper and you’ll be ready to stitch the Lebasque Women Sewing in no time!
