Paperless Paper Piecing

I had never heard of this before, have you?  Paperless paper piecing!  And not only that, it is way faster and way simpler.  It only involves the pattern, a glue stick, your fabric and an iron.  Okay, who am I kidding, I didn't use the iron, but finger pressed 1/4" seams when placing fabric down.  

Did I mention how fast and simple it was?   I think it is the greatest invention yet in quilting.   And you can do it with paper, especially fancy scrapbooking paper and make little cards. 

I think I may find some simple Christmas patterns and have my kids try it out.  It is that easy!


This was my demo.  I used scrap fabric and it is still not quilted.   I had never bothered with paper piecing books before.  Now I am scouring the internet like crazy for free patterns.    Circles, I want circles in some form of paper piecing.   Lately I have a thing for these shapes. 

Now I gotta go and find me some patterns=)
