    paper piecing - Niemeyer

    My LQS had a class Saturday using Judy Niemeyer's Cappuchino table runner pattern. It's a small shop and we're so pleased the owner has carved out a little class space -there's room for 4 students and a teacher. Three of us had never done any paper piecing and one had a bit of experience. I enjoyed the teacher and the class, but didn't come away with a burning desire to do a lot of this process. I began a new skill and spent the day sewing so ... all good. Here's as far as I got. This is half of what's needed to make a runner. You make one more of each of these units and sash in between. The light blue in the center is my background for sashing. Someday I may even finish it!

    Problem is - it has to get in line behind the projects with deadlines.
    Grandson's birthday big boy quilt - March 2 (needs a bit more, but basically done)
    Wedding quilt - March 24 (partially pieced)
    3 baby quilts - showers in April - (one finished, 2 not started, but fabric on hand)
    2 retiree quilts for teachers I work with - May 7 (1 partially pieced, fabric on hand)
    4 placemats to complete a set I gave my mother for Christmas (she wants 8, I gave her 4) - Mother's Day
    Senior piano student recital quilt - May 12 (almost finished quilting)
    Grandson's teacher and aide - 2 quilts - May 24 (not even planned, but will shop my stash)
    Church graduates - 3 - May - one is finished, one is pieced, one not started, but will shop my stash)
    Wedding quilt - June (may use a top I have on hand)

    So .... this little project is in line. I'm going to a 4 day retreat in July - that may be when it gets finished. Hope I can remember how to do it by then!
    So many quilts, so little time.

    Your contrasting colors look great together. Finish the project, it deserves to get done and be displayed

    Looks really good! I agree, pp'ing isn't my favorite technique, but there are times when it's the best way to put a block together. It's good to take a class to learn how to do it because it sure can get confusing when you try to figure it out yourself. Ask me how I know

    Very pretty colors and great sharp lines. I love paper piecing. I'm usually so successful when I use this method. If you can sew a straight line, it usually turns out great.
