Paper Piecing Beauty
The talented team of Janice Ellertson and Jodel Yover bring you a new, exciting, and totally wonderful paper piecing project. With TWENTY-FIVE large block options and FIVE small block options, they give you a vast array of possibilities so you can make your own unique and stunning art quilt.
This book includes full-color detailed instructions on their paper piecing technique. The step-by-step directions allow you to see, understand, and complete every beautiful block. In the instructions, Janice and Jodel give you their fantastic new approach to paper piecing… one that doesn’t call for peeling off paper and does not leave your quilt as stiff as cardboard!
To make your Beauty 'n Check process faster, easier, and more accurate, they have included all the patterns as PDF files on the enclosed CD. The CD works on both Mac and PC systems. Just pop it in, click to the folders, print and start stitching. They have also provided files for all the finished block designs and the cover quilt layout. Use them to color, plan, and design your own Beauty. It’s all on the CD!
