Last week saw the last of the patterns in the series for Foundation Paper Piecing For The Terrified, so this week I’m going to highlight the stellar work done by the girls who bravely sewed along and uploaded to the Flickr Group.

Week 1:

Taryn leapt in first with some Amy Butler inspired courthouse steps:

While Hadley had some fun lining up some trees:

And Fiona went all the way to make an entire cushion!

In week 2 Linda had some fun with some fussy cut centres:

And so did Marg:

In week 3 Taryn had fun stringing people along:

As did Hadley:

Then in week 4 Fiona eked out the remaining fabric from her SHQ quilt to get some circling geese for a cushion:

While Juliet finally got to embrace the geese she’d been admiring for a while:

By week 5 I think I’d freaked a few people out, but Hadley pulled it off with a great colour combo:

And Linda turned it all on its head!

 

very scrappy :))

Finally, for week 6, Fiona braved it right to the end with a finish within the last week:

I’m so proud of everyone that took part and embraced paper piecing, and I know a few have tried out some other patterns that they’ve seen while the series has been going on, with great success :o)

I’ll be back with a tutorial on making a New York Beauty block on the 16th of April, and I’m hoping in the next few weeks to round up some tutorials on how to rehome those orphaned blocks. ย In the meantime, you can check out Sunni’sย ย recently hosted series for orphaned Farmer’s Wives blocks, which should give you a good step for a hint :o)
