making Rainbows

Now that they're sorted, those triangle scraps are actually tempting!  Today I'm turning my smallest, uneven-shaped bits into a bit of fun for the back of that Tilt-a-whirl quilt.

I'm telling you, I would never have thought "Hey, paper piecing triangles would be fun!" if it hadn't been for my experience with the Penny Sampler.  Designing and teaching a class widens my horizons every time.  So thanks for that, friends!

This work is slow, but rewarding.  No need to trim in advance!  I'm seeing that paper piecing has lots of scrap-friendly potential!

  5. What! Paper piecing triangles is fun? I actually like paper piecing, so I might have to get out my triangle scraps (I'm very good at collecting them but so far haven't done anything with them!) and get them working for me.

  7. This is beautiful! And just what I need for an upcoming quilt bee - will we be learning that template in class?

    1. Well, this particular project/template isn't part of the class =(. But, you would definitely be familiar with paper piecing so that you would totally know how to sew this.
