The Paper Pieced Home Blog Tour
Oh . My . Word .
Have you gotten your paws on this super charming book yet?
Penny Layman, has completely outdone herself. Seriously.
The Paper-Pieced Home: Quilting a Household One Block at a Time, Interweave/F+W is a literal mecca of fun, retro, mouthwatering goodness for anyone who loves, or who has ever wanted to try foundation paper piecing.
Ok, i just went through and counted 40, 40 amazingly cute blocks and 8 juicy projects which instantly beg you to make them once you take a peek inside…
Am i right?! A viewfinder? I just died. And yes. I think my bathroom does in fact need a claw foot tub bathmat.
Aw man, you’re killing me Penny!
So when I was invited to be a part of this blog tour, I knew immediately that i needed to make the pair of potholders…
Oh yes, fried egg on a skillet, you will be mine!…or my mom’s, cause she kinda needs some new ones. Either way, I couldn’t wait to get started!
Oh hai itty bitty pan handle! You’re just the cutest!
I found the best chickens for the back. They totally crack me up!
And since I was having so much fun with the first potholder, I had to make the retro pot pot holder too.
Oh chickens, you make me laugh. Even though i totally sewed you all on crooked and had to applique a new piece on top.
This was a really fun project. You need to try it!
And I can’t forget the requisite back shot..
The best part about being in the blog tour is that I get to give away one copy of Penny’s awesome sauce book to one lucky winner! This is open to anyone anywhere, worldwide. All you need to do is
leave me a comment saying which adorable project or block you’d make if you won. I’ll draw a winner in the next few days!
Comments Closed! Winner will be announced shortly!
