The designs are out of the ordinary! Yes, there are a few flowers, but the designs tend to be more pictorial and uncommon. Seasonal designs include a snowflake, Valentine envelope, St. Patrick’s Hat, umbrella, old-fashioned bicycle with a basket, vintage camping lantern and porch chair, suitcase, harvest fruit, Halloween blocks, and a winter scene with a house and trees. Other options are a kite, nutcracker, mailman, old clock with Roman numerals, sewing supplies, color wheel, and paper clips!
Playful, Little Paper-Pieced Projects has something for any quilter interested in paper-piecing. The patterns vary in complexity and difficulty – some of the blocks are intricate but the projects are small and manageable. Fabric suggestions are given to enhance the modern feel. This book has inspired me to plan a series of seasonal wall hangings. My daughter, starting out on her own in an apartment, wants to decorate for the holidays. I’ll have to make something with that adorable snowboarding bunny for her! I am sure there will be a design (or many) that will strike your fancy as well!
