Playful paper piecing

Playful Paper Piecing

I finished the kitty block and turned it into a pincushion stuffed with crushed walnut shells.

I used the Sea salt sandy collection from Island Batik

and the kitty FPP pattern from quiltart


Here I added some blue pins for the eyes Smile


My 11yr old daughter picked out fabrics for a large version so I could make a pillow for her.

Janine from quiltart sent me the block in a 10” version to make this Smile


I added a zipper to the back


Here’s the two “pillows” together. Aren’t they fun??


Do you LOVE or “hate” FPP??

these are so cute. I love to PP. Right now I am making place mats with a star war PP in each one. these are a little more difficult, especially the light sabers. LOL. challenging.

what a great pin cushion and larger cushion this cat has adorned. I must learn how to FPP as I am missing out on some great patterns

Adorable! And the Sea Salt Sandies were a great fabric choice!
