At the Fat Quarterly London Retreat I am going to be teaching foundation paper piecing. The class has been designed around a Union Jack pillow but I have decided to widen it to include this Postcards from Paris pillow as well as another pillow involving more advanced paper piecing so that all standards of paper piecer will be catered for in the class. This pillow consists of four square within a square within a square blocks sashed with cornerstones.
I called it Postcards from Paris because it has that kind of vintagey Parisian feel to it, helped in part by using Etchings, Curio and a lovely Paris fabric which Krista Poppyprint kindly sent me a couple of months ago. Kerry VeryKerryBerry helped me put all the fabrics together because I'm not so good at that - I sent her photos of the fabrics I was thinking of using and she helped me to make a cohesive stack for a vintagey Parisian look. If you're coming to London and this is the pillow you fancy making, let me know. Anyone not coming to London will be able to buy the London Retreat issue of Fat Quarterly which has all three of my paper pieced pillow patterns in.
