Introducing - A Paper Piecing Party!

I heart paper piecing. Pretty sure you’re likely to have figured that out by now. I love piecing, making patterns, seeing other people’s paper piecing, discovering new patterns. I love all of it. Except for pulling off the paper on the back. But even that I can live with.

So I thought it was about time that we truly celebrated paper piecing – and what better way than with a party? Not only that, a regular weekly party!

How about a linky party just for paper piecing? Oh I can hear you shout “Yes please, our lives have been so lost without one!”. Well worry no more my friends, problem solved.

Each weekend, I’ll be hosting a Paper Piecing Party right here on my blog. All you have to do is come join in the fun and link up something paper pieced you’ve been working on! It might be a finished project, a block, part of a block, a new pattern you’re planning to try… anything you like. So long as it’s related to foundation paper piecing, we’ll all be happy quilters. :)

Thought it might be fun to add in a prize each week for linking up – because really, we all love prizes right? So each week I will pick one of the links to win a free pattern of their choice from my Craftsy shop. That’s right, I’m totally enabling you to keep on paper piecing!

Keen?! Who wouldn’t be?! Pop back here on the weekend and share your paper piecing prowess! The linky will be open from late Friday night to early Monday morning (Aussie time). Share your project with us, link back to my blog (or add the button to your sidebar!) and visit some of the other paper piecing fanatics. Let’s spread the paper piecing love!

Love is in the air
