A sweet collection of unique paper-pieced quilt blocks.

Sewing since the age of six and a quilter for many years, author Penny Layman is inspired by everyday household items that connote cozy kitchens and domestic warmth. Here Penny creates 40 paper-pieced quilt blocks celebrating the home and all things in it, while showcasing her quirky sense of humor.

Paper piecing allows for incredibly precise blocks, even if the quilt block designs themselves seem complex or make use of irregular shapes. The blocks in this collection include a mix of solids and prints, using the latter with particular effect. In addition to paper piecing, some blocks include needle-turned appliqué, printing, and hand embroidery.

The 10 quilt projects each feature one or more blocks. In addition to complete written instructions for every block and project, the book includes a CD that contains full-size pattern templates for every block.
