I know I said last week that paper piecing wastes a lot of fabric, BUT… I’ve decided to make my own “Fractured” quilt using Displacement Activity’s paper piecing tutorial.
Instead of using regular paper, I’ve decided to use tracing paper, it’s transparent so I can see the lines on both sides and thin for easier paper removal, two very huge benefits. It’s not very expensive either, $3 for a pad.
I don’t know if all tracing paper is like this (I don’t think so), it has a rough(ish) side and a smooth side. The smooth side will be up and the rough(ish) side will be against the fabric.
I haven’t decided on a colour palette yet– yellows and blues? I think I’ll make it larger than the original which is 36″ x 36″, I may also offset the burst so it’s not in the middle of the quilt but rather one corner.
What are you up to this weekend?
