English Paper Piecing is an old technique that has become very popular again in recent years.
It is a great sofa-craft and easy to bring with you when you are traveling.
Among the news this spring you will find precut paper pieces.
The pieces comes in cute packaging with instructions so you can easily get started.
(The Tilda glue pen for paper piecing and applique is a little delayed but will be in shops soon)
For the purses we used the purse pattern from Homemade & Happy/ Hjemmelaget og lykkelig.
Have a nice day!
Petals & Patches have made their lovely Daisy Meadows Quilt in the new Tilda fabrics. What a sweet spring pattern!
It is not yet quilted on this picture, but we just had to post it as soon as we saw it. Reed more about it on their Facebook page.
Prepare for a relaxing time while trees turn green and flowers bloom with a lap quilt in fresh spring colours.
The quilt measures 48 x 64 inches (120 x 160 cm) and consist of 2 and 4 inch squares.
We have added a 1/4 inch seem allowance to the measurements below.
If you want a longer quilt you can easily add a row of 3 blocs (described below) to make the quilt 80 inch (200 cm) long.
The quilt top is made with all the 12 Spring Lake fabrics. You will also need off-white fabric.
Start by cutting out the pieces as shown here, a 1/4 inch seem allowance is included in the measurements.
Sew the 2,5 inch pieces together so that you get 48 A-blocs, and 48 B-blocs.
Piece the A and B blocs and the 4,5 inch squares together into four blocs (left side).
The numbers and letters shows where to place the A and B blocks, and witch 4,5 inch squares goes where according to the number given to each design above.
Piece the four blocs together into a larger block (right side). You need 12 identical larger blocs.
Piece the 12 blocs together so that the patchwork is 3 blocs wide, and 4 blocs high, and your quilt top is finished.
You can easily add another row of blocs if you want a larger quilt.
The quilting (a medium sized crazy puzzle) is done by a professional quilting service. You will probably find a company that can baste and quilt your larger patchworks near you by searching on the Internet.
For the binding we have used “Addie Teal”.
Have a great weekend!
