I’ll admit it—I’m not the most accurate sewist. Despite my best efforts, there’s always something wonky in everything I sew. (I prefer to say there’s a handmade charm to my projects, but call it what you will!)
If you’re anything like me, paper piecing may become your favorite sewing method. Not only can you achieve accurate results but you can also create complex designs not possible through traditional piecing. Which is why I’m excited to introduce Paper Piecing Handy Pocket Guide by Tacha Bruecher, a portable reference for all things paper piecing. Whether you’re new to the technique or just need a refresher, it’s the perfect way to experiment without making a huge commitment.
Paper piecing can seem intimidating at first, but Tacha will guide you through the process. You’ll learn the basic and freezer-paper methods of foundation piecing, which you can then apply to ten blocks.
When you’re ready for more, check out C&T’s paper-piecing book selection. A few of my favorites include Adventures in Paper Piecing & Design by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp and Sew Cute & Clever Farm & Forest Friends by Mary Hertel. Happy paper piecing!
