This is my entry to the current Paperartsy challenge of Paper Piecing - the full details of inspiration from guest designers can be found here. My first thoughts of paper piecing does involve hours spent on patchwork when I was younger. More recently I've found paper piecing using stamps and patterned papers very therapeutic - I think it's all that cutting out that's relaxing.
Here's a selection of cards I've just made - creating my own patchwork backgrounds as well the main images from oddments of paper. I haven't 100% finished the owl ones as I've not decided who they're for yet.
