Yesterday (Sunday) I did a workshop with Lessa Siegele OAM from South Australia.  Bay Quilters had invited Lessa to give a talk at our Saturday monthly meeting and teach a paper piecing workshop on the Sunday.  Paper piecing has always been a technique I avoided but after yesterday it is now a technique I will use more in my quilts.

Here are a couple of photos of the work I did yesterday.
Stitching the pieces on the paper

adding the curved pieces

The finished blocks.  Don't know what happened to this photo as it turned while uploading.

As you can see I have not used my usual colour purple.  I will use these blocks and more to make cushions for our caravan.   Julie one the other ladies at the workshop who always uses blue had chosen purple for her fabric.
