This Bella Bella quilt pattern is at this point awaiting the perfect quilting & quilter. The main body was paper pieced, the center medallion was fussy cut & paper pieced, and my wonderful husband designed the paper piecing patterns for the borders.
I plan for a turquoise piping & brown bindin

|BOM Sampler in 1/12 Scale
By: Diane Bryant,
My quilt group was doing a Block of the Month and I decided to see if I could reproduce it in miniature. All of the blocks are hand pieced. The plain blocks are a stripe fabric. It was fun to challenge myself and see how small I could go. The smallest piece is a 1/8 inch triangle in the heart block.

|Feathered Peacock Star
By: Darlene Gerber,
Custom free motion quilting enhances the Merlot to Light Green Batiks, which radiate from dark to light in my second Judy Niemeyer paper pieced creation. My biggest challenge was selecting the colors and patterns of the 12 different batiks. My husband says they remind him of peacock’s feathers.

|Gansos entre estrellas
This is my first paper piecing quilt and it’s a wall hanging for my daughter’s bedroom.
I bought the fabrics in the U.S.A. (I’m from Uruguay).
Some details are still missing. The flying geese will have a 1/4” bias and the quilt will have a wider bias al around.

I started this quilt with no plan of what size it was going to be and I made quite a few flowers before deciding how what the other hexagons would be. I used a jelly roll. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. It is for my daughter and she loves it. What more thanks does one need?

The Hair Bells are from a wildflower photo by my brother. I drew out the design myself and paper pieced it. The dimensions are approximate as I don’t remember the size for sure.
It was a Christmas gift to the brother who took the photo.

My first PP quilt. Design came via an on-line purchase and I had grave problems with it (won’t mention shop). I could not get the twisted log cabin to work and thought it was me but the paper pattern needed to be reversed. Quilted by my friend Sue Roper in exchange for a quilt top I made for her

This miniature was intended to be part of a silent auction at our quilt show, but it did not get done in time. Only 14 inches square, it contains 336 pieces of fabric, not including the borders. Each strip is 1/4in. finished. I doubt that I could have made it without paper piecing it.

|One Day at a Time
By: Martha Szescila,
Inspired by my late husband, while he was battling brain cancer. He believed all things could be accomplished “one day at a time”. This was machine pieced, machine quilted, and hand beaded and took 3 years to complete. It is my tribute to his strength.

Prairie Schoolhouses was my first attempt at foundation paper piecing. I used leftover scraps of material from another project. The best part of the process was tearing off the paper afterwards and turning over the square to discover how perfect the schoolhouse finished. I hand quilted it.

This is a small block that is going to be a pillow top. I love math and think there are far too few math related quilts out there. This was my first attempt at paper piecing, I designed the block myself. I have more ideas of math related blocks to make once this pillow is finished.
