I've been thinking about doing some paper piecing to a quilt pattern for quite some time. This week's Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge was the perfect motivation for me to follow through with that idea. I looked up quilt patterns, found one I wanted to replicate, and tried to recreate it on my card using scraps of Tranquil Tide DSP. I picked my patterns and cut a bunch of 1/2" squares and then cut the squares in half. I then just followed the pattern and put my triangles together.
Sometimes, I have an idea in my head that I'm not going to use for a class or swap. This is one of those ideas. :) It was fun to take the challenge and see if I could replicate a quilt pattern with paper, but it is not a card that can be quickly replicated. When you have some time and some extra scraps of paper, spend time doing some paper piecing. It is a fun way to use up scraps of paper and challenge your brain at the same time. :)
