My name is Amy from During Quiet Time and today I am going to share a paper pieced pillow project that I am calling Summerlove Blooms. If you are familiar with me, you know that I have become a smidge bit addicted to paper piecing. A number of people have expressed interest in trying out paper piecing but are intimidated.
This project is fairly simple, with a limited number of seams to match, and I am going to take you through the paper piecing step by step with lots of pictures. Here's your chance to give it a try!
My design is inspired by the floral designs and summery hues of Pat Bravo's Summerlove collection. You will use 8 fat quarters for this project--and every bit of them too so cut wisely!
- Beyond Bliss Ginger
- Daydreaming Sunshine
- Swept Away Serenity
- Tokens of Love Pink
- Passionate Spirit Teal
- Malibu Haze
- Naivety Berry
- Sweetdays Seashell
Two 16" pillow forms
Two 14" or larger invisible zippers
These pillow covers are paper pieced. It's a great pattern for someone new to paper
piecing to tackle because the pattern is simple and the fabrics are somewhat low contrast
and patterned and therefore very forgiving.
