Have a fantastical paper-piecing adventure with Mary Hertel
Posted by Katie Van Amburg on Apr 23rd 2020
Paper-piecing, too difficult? That’s just a myth!
It’s never been easier or more fun than in Mary Hertel’s latest book, featuring 16 of her most magical paper-pieced blocks yet.
The book offers an eye-catching collection of blocks inspired by your favorite characters from fairytales and fantasy lands: dragons, unicorns, mermaid, princess, knight, gryphon, wizard, and more.
Along with the blocks, there are 7 versatile and cute projects that are a snap to sew up. With the home decor projects, like quilts and pillows, you can transform your house into a castle. And the no-zipper backpack is fantastically fashionable.
Just like in her previous books, Mary makes the paper-piecing process so easy, it’s like magic! And, as always, the 7 versatile projects can be made using any of the book’s paper-pieced blocks.
On top of the fun fantasy theme, there’s another brand-new element: while Mary’s previous books use 8’’ x 8’’ blocks as the standard size, many of this book’s 16 blocks are made from putting together two 8’’ x 8’’ blocks to create a full picture. This allows you to create blocks that are bigger and better than ever. There’s even a pattern that uses four blocks for a big castle!
