Paper Piecing

Our last meeting I discussed a bit about paper piecing, hoping to demystify it a bit.

I want to share with you this Flickr group, Ringo Pie. It is a virtual quilting bee where that month's theme is paper pieced. Check out the other pages to see the great blocks. This month's theme is packages and mail.

While you are at Flickr type in 'paper piecing' and check out the amazing photos.

I was so inspired through this search I found a free pattern for my quilt swap quilt. I have my fingers crossed I can pull it off.

We now have a Facebook group where we can chat. If you are on facebook look us up, Magic Valley Modern Quilters.

One last thing, this month's meeting and sewing night are combined. Many of our members are taking off on our usual date to attend Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. I can't wait to hear about everything.
Our combined meeting is May 21. I will be doing a quick demo on cathedral window blocks. See you there.
