Paper Pieced Pillow

Posted on June 28, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I have been diligently finishing up some UFO's and I ran across my first paper pieced block I did. I had made so many mistakes with it, let's just call it a learning experience. Because of all my mistakes I wasn't really sure what to do with it, so I thought it would make a really cute pillow.

The fabric is Bespoken by Art Gallery.  The softest, silkiest fabric - a pure pleasure to work with!

So while I wasn't completely pleased with how my one block turned out, I am quite happy with the way my new pillow turned out!  If you haven't paper pieced before, my one tip to you would be don't be skimpy with the fabric.  If the piece you think you need is 2" x 2", just cut 3" x 3" to be sure.  Do a little google search to read some of the tips and tricks out there to come up with the perfect paper pieced block, you're bound to come up with at least one perfect block (or in my case semi-perfect block).
