In a normal world we would make an ornament as our November Program. Instead I have picked two paper pieced ornaments and I am challenging everyone to make one or two, embellish them and show them at our December meeting. There are photos here of the ones I made. I have included some hints for making paper pieced blocks. Have fun and stretch your creative imagination. I am looking forward to seeing the variety of ornaments.
Tips for Paper Piecing:
To complete the ornament you can embellish before adding a back or after. To add the backing cut fabric larger than the paper pieced section. Lay pieces right side together and sew with a 1/4" seam along the ornament top leaving an opening at the bottom. Trim backing to same size as front. Clip the curves and across the corners. Turn the right side out and hand stitch the bottom closed. You can add batting or opt not to use.
