My names Siobhan and I'm a bookaholic!

No sewing going on but I did get some new books for paper foundation piecing. I can't help myself, I love books and as soon as I try something new craft wise I'm onto amazon looking for more.


These two books are really good, the 365 patterns book has 7 and 3.5 inch blocks that can be traced or scanned.


The 300 pattern book has 3 or 4 inch blocks and comes with a disk to print them directly. There are some great designs in both of them and I can see all sorts of things I want to make from them. And no, I didn't deliberately put this next photo in sideways - blogger in its wisdom thought it was the best idea!

It's best, for your sanity, to let Blogger have it's way for now.
I enjoy paper piecing, though I have not done that much.
Hugs,

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

I've foundation pieced onto muslin and lightweight calico but never paper pieced. I'll have to give it a go sometime.

I borrow a lot of books from the library about quilting because I tend not to use patterns so much (I figure if I dont use an actual pattern if it all goes pear shaped in the making I can pretend it was meant to be like that! )

Love your finds though!

I think I have one of those books!! I have done a litle paper piecing and like it. So wonderful to have the perfect seams that paper piecing creates. Can't wait to see what you create!!
