My First Try at Paper Piecing
After watching Jennifer Ofenstein's paper piecing tutorial (link), I just had to try it! I found one of Ms Ofenstein's free paper piecing patterns on Craftsy entitled "Mug o' Love" (link)... and hoped it would be manageable for a newbie.
I won't say my seam ripper didn't see any use but things went more smoothly as I went along. I didn't do a great job with fabric selection... and I think some echo stitching of the heart shape will make it more noticeable. Not sure what I'm going to do with this... but it was fun making it. This type of thing generates wayyyyyyy more threads than regular block piecing!
