More paper piecing

I'm enjoying paper-piecing lately; it feels like making a quilt, playing with all the pretty papers and finding a pleasing mix of designs. Here I kept my color scheme to blue, lime green, and white and used lots of gingham and dots, with a little stripe and a flowered paper thrown in.

  5. I LOVE the ascending look of your flowers as the go upwards on the card, such a neat effect and you are such a master at this paper piecing! I need to do some more of this technique, it's not my favorite technique but the way you've been playing with it makes it more appealing to me!!

  12. Loved all your pieced cards too, so keep doing it if you are enjoying it! This is so very pretty and the butterfly is gorgeous. I find I go in streaks when I am enjoying a technique. I think of it like the artist periods. :)
