Paper Piecing Class Number 3

Hello Everyone,

On May 8, I shared with you the progress of my students in the paper piecing class.  Just click here to see the blog post.  I will wait for you to come back.

Okay, you're back... today's post shows the progress everyone made.  It was the last day of class and everyone is just about ready to piece their blocks together to make the quilt top!


Here is one version, all the center blocks are pieced and this is a possible layout.


These are Judy's border corner blocks.  We just arranged them this way because we liked they way it looked, but the will be the corners of the actual quilt top.


This is Noreen's scrappy version.  You really could just take the border corners and make them into a small table topper or pillow.  Very cool!


Here are some of Noreen's blocks.


These are the other Noreen's blocks, very soft lavender and pinks.  Just beautiful!


Another bright version.


So we decided to play again with Noreen's blocks.  Today, I showed them how to piece an "S" curve to piece the border blocks together.  Noreen was working really quick.  So we took one of her inner blocks and laid the border pieces around it to see what it would look like.  This is a great size for a table topper or small wall hanging.  I think I may have to make me one of these!!


And just thought I would share with you my version, which I call Chocolate Raspberry Truffle.

The pattern that I taught was...


... A Touch of Spring from Judy Niemeyer.  You can find it here in my shop and other wonderful patterns by Judy.

All the blocks look wonderful and will make such lovely quilts, but your Chocolate Raspberry Truffle is amazing! I love how you used the browns and reds in outer border, very clever, as if there's not enough to look at, that little change adds so much.

Wow, your students have really done a great job. So many options to make with the same pattern.

Awesome! Each block has a unique personality.

Wow! In first looking at this pattern, I would have dismissed it as too hard and too time-consuming! But seeing how great a job your students did and seeing that it is paper-pieced, well, I am beginning to have second thoughts!!The results are stunning, and your students should be proud of their work!
