Katy is a very clever girl

You know Katy Ginger Monkey, well did you know that she was a very clever girl?  She made this pillow which I tried to steal from her when she came to my house last week but failed.  


And then she used the same pattern to make this baby quilt top.  Don't you love those bits falling off the bottom?  Genius. 


Both are English paper pieced and, if you fancy giving these a go, why not invest in a set of her acrylic templates which you use to cut your fabrics for this pattern.  You can cut around them using your rotary cutter or draw around them and scissor cut.  Since they're acrylic you can see through them for perfect fussy cutting.  And you can download the paper templates for the paper part of the English paper piecing from her blog. 


You can buy the templates here but they're selling like hot cakes so, if you like hot cakes, get on over there quick before Katy eats I mean sells them all.  Go here for more information and here to snap up a set.

  10. That's super cool! I can't believe that pillow is paper pieced. It's so clean it looks like printed fabric. P.S. I love the header update today :-D
