Paper Piecing Workshop with Penny


Penny Layman was our speaker at the KCMQG this month. She brought lots of projects to show, including quilts and curtains. Her paper piecing projects were amazing! You can check out her stuff on her fabulous blog. I took two workshops from her on Friday. The first was an intro to paper piecing and next was freezer paper piecing. I hadn’t done any paper piecing before and I have to say, I LOVED it! I prefer the original method to the freezer paper method, but I’m glad I got to experience both. Penny was a wonderful teacher and really took her time with everyone to make sure we all understood. I couldn’t have asked for a better Friday filled with sewing, friends from the KCMQG, and Penny!
