The Beautiful Garbage.
Okay, it happened.
I have falling in love with paper-piecing.
I swore I never would! I said it was too finicky, took too long! I said it was a waste of paper, that I didn’t need all those teeny tiny points! I said it was for the birds! Or the paper-piecers! And that it was fine and dandy and important to know how to do, but no thank you, ma’am, I’ll stick with plain old piecing-piecing.
Then I started making a Rocky Road to Kansas quilt and, well, that was that. I love it, guys. I’m so in love with this method. It’s FUN! It’s fun and tidy. I love that trimming moment, you know? When you turn the whole mess over and swish! swish! swish! swish! You’ve got this gorgeous block. From chaos, order. From a mess, a clean kitchen countertop. You feel me, here?
And I love the way the garbage looks.
Picture of quilt to come, I promise. All my paper-piecers in the house say “Heeeeeeey!”
