My First Paper Foundation Project....


We lived in Ketchikan, Alaska for almost four years. I learned so much about quilting there. There are many talented quilters there and a wonderful guild that does so much for the community. While we were there, I took a class to make this wall hanging. It is called Falling Leaves. I love the fall colors and I take it out every year. This class taught me everything I will ever need to know about paper piecing.


After I took this class, a group of ladies got together once a month to make paper foundation blocks. I had a lot of fun going from house to house and seeing all the lovely things that were made with fabric, needle and thread.
