I taught a class at Essem Textiles on how to paper piece WITHOUT sewing on the paper.
They all worked on a Storm at Sea block. This was the block they had for inspiration: (made with Island Batik fabric, Hobbs batting and Aurifil thread was used for the quilting.)
This was the quilt I made with a smaller block, but only used 2 sets of paper for the whole quilt. (Because you can use them over and over and over again – no sewing on the paper!)
By the end of the class, everyone was able to figure out what size of fabric they needed for the next portion and not sewing on the paper was a breeze!
Here’s the centre blocks all completed: top row (Cheryl & Sue), bottom row (Cathy, Linda & Lorraine)
Joan came quite late, but managed to get her center block completed!
Blocks in progress!
As I’m writing this blog post, only 2 people have sent me pictures of their completed blocks.
Lorraine’s completed block! Aren’t the blues and whites so pretty?
Here’s Sue’s completed block! It’s quilted and looks so sophisticated!
