Hi Everyone…………the weekend is approaching and I am loving my completed foundation pieced Harlequin Star!
My local quilting group Bayside Quilters Inc organized a foundation piecing workshop sometime ago. I love the accuracy of foundation piecing and wanted to add a new technique to my quilting skills. The workshop was focused on a foundation pieced pattern, Harlequin Stars, designed and written by the lovely Emma Jansen of Ballarat Patchwork. The pattern can be sewn with any paper piecing method, however, the workshop focused on a freezer paper technique with a difference. Essentially, the freezer paper is folded back at the seam lines and the fabric is stitched close to the folded edge of the paper. The benefits are that the freezer paper can be reused multiple times and there is no need to rip paper away from the stitching lines. Weeks had passed by and my foundation piecing focus waivered until it was resumed with the love of the Fussy Cut Square Swap that I posted recently.
Now the cutting board is out and more stars are on the way to make this beautiful pattern…………..
The quilt pattern has been photographed with permission of Emma Jansen.
If you are interested in this pattern check out Emma’s shop here! There is a 50% off sale on this pattern at the moment. It is back to the cutting board for me !! I will keep you up to date with my progress………….
