Welcome to my small Kingdom!!
It is such an honor to be part of an amazing event like The Honey Pot Bee.
Thanks Molli for the opportunity to design a block for all of you!
If you are new here, welcome!!
If you have been here before, I am glad that you came back!!! :)
If you are new here you should know that I am obsessed with Paper Piecing and I offer FREE paper piecing patterns of very famous characters like Snoopy & Friends, Alice in Wonderland, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and many many more: just snoop around if you are curious!
I am also running a fun QAL over at my other blog (http://alidatweloqdesigns.blogspot.com/) so if you are up for a year long skill builder, head over there and join!
And now, as I mentioned, I LOOOOVE Paper Piecing, so my block for you is a simple and versatile paper pieced block.
If you don't like Paper Piecing, don't leave just yet... I have options... As You Wish...
As You Wish - Basic Pattern, Envelope only
If you have never done Foundation Paper Piecing, I would suggest you to start with the amazing
video tutorials by Jennifer @ Sewhooked (https://sewhooked.com/paper-piecing-resources/).
She explains step by step all the tricks of this technique.
The envelope pattern is very easy so don't get intimidated if you have heard that Paper Piecing is
hard: I started sewing with paper piecing... I was able to do it, with NO prior sewing experience
(meaning I didn't even know how to thread the machine)... so if I was able to do it, YOU can do it too!!! :) :) :)
Final size 10.5'' x 10.5''
As You Wish - All Variations
I like all kind of sewing techniques, so I tried to include as many as I could in the companion pattern I designed for you!
This is also a great opportunity to try techniques that maybe you are not too familiar with but in such a small block there is not much waste if you end up not liking it. I encourage you to experiment, mix and match and make this block serve you well.
I am very excited to see how you all interpret my design.
Ciao ciao! :)
