Adventures with Paper Piecing

The next group project for CAMQG involves paper pieced blocks.  All the blocks will be put together into a charity quilt.  For each block that a member makes, they will win a chance to win a group sew prize at the end of the year. 

Pat gave the group a quick paper piecing tutorial
At the past meeting, many members indicated that they had paper pieced in the past.  If you are new to paper piecing, or need a refresher, check out this quick tutorial for paper piecing from the Craftsy blog.

Just a reminder to add a quarter inch seam allowance for each of the block patterns passed out at the meeting.

Make your blocks in any color scheme of your choice, but keep in mind that all fabrics should be solid.  Bring your blocks to either the June or July meeting.

For all the happenings from the May meeting, please refer to the May meeting minutes
