For this project, I used one of my favorite piecing techniques, foundation paper piecing. I love paper piecing because I can design and execute precise design elements—the opposite of improvisation. Every piece (big and small) was drawn and converted into the pattern. I later adapted this design to a more manageable 18” x 18” mini quilt pattern—this original design required over 80 sheets of paper. The quilting was achieved on a domestic machine with a walking foot (with lots of buried threads).
