Tutorial on Paper Piecing
This weekend I played around with making some more videos. Here's one I did on paper piecing which is one of my favorite methods. I have used paper piecing for years to make quilts, usually sticking to hexagons as you will see in the video below.
However I recently made one using sari scraps with a basic square and rectangle design, which worked really well (pictured above). Using papers is helpful with lightweight fabrics, the paper gives them stability. I get often asked: "Do you take the papers out?" Yes! You do. When you are done sewing each shape you snipe the tacking thread, remove it and take out the papers. You can use the papers a couple of times.
