Happy Second Monday in August! This week we are looking at a book I wish I’d had when I was first trying to learn to paper piece. I had such a hard time figuring it out, even watching videos and reading countless tutorials had me flustered. I managed to complete that first paper pieced project, but it would be a lot better if I’d had this book.
And what exactly is this book? Nancy Mahoney’s Learn to Paper Piece: A Visual Guide to Piecing with Precision. It is available in both paperback and Kindle versions so the first link below is my Amazon Affiliate link for the paperback version and the second is for the Kindle version.
This book makes paper piecing so straightforward. I especially like that the in the illustrations she uses the pieces for a quilt pattern from the book. A new paper piecer could easily follow along. Everything is clearly explained and well illustrated. And the projects are pretty good looking also!
Here’s the Table of Contents:
- Getting Ready to Paper Piece
- Paper-Foundation Piecing Step-by-Step
- The Quilts (There are 5.)
- About the Author
