9781620335970: The Paper-Pieced Home: Quilting a Household One Block at a Time

A sweet collection of unique paper-pieced quilt blocks.

Sewing since the age of six and a quilter for many years, author Penny Layman is inspired by everyday household items that connote cozy kitchens and domestic warmth. Here Penny creates 40 paper-pieced quilt blocks celebrating the home and all things in it, while showcasing her quirky sense of humor.

Paper piecing allows for incredibly precise blocks, even if the quilt block designs themselves seem complex or make use of irregular shapes. The blocks in this collection include a mix of solids and prints, using the latter with particular effect. In addition to paper piecing, some blocks include needle-turned appliqué, printing, and hand embroidery.

The 10 quilt projects each feature one or more blocks. In addition to complete written instructions for every block and project, the book includes a CD that contains full-size pattern templates for every block.

About the Author:

Penny Layman is a quilter and blogger living in Fort Collins, Colorado. Her work has been published in Stitch, Modern Quilts, Fat Quarterly, and 101 Patchwork Projects, as well as in the books Pillow Pop, Modern Blocks, and Pretty in Patchwork: Doll Quilts. She is the cofounder of the popular online Ringo Pie Bee--the site that helped paper piecing gain in popularity among newer quilters.

Review:

"As is typical with Interweave books, the layout it clear, the photography includes both flat and stylized shots of the projects, the patterns are straightforward and simple, using illustrations to hammer home the project instructions. The technical instructions and simple needlework, a primer in paper piecing and embroidery, are also clear and illustrated." --Mark Lipinksi

"Clearly focused on paper piecing, a passion of Penny's, her book is a great resource for both learning paper piecing and finding an abundance of modern yet retro inspired patterns." --Cut to Pieces

"The book is beautiful with color photos of every paper piecing pattern (the book includes 40 different designs), and also instructions for ten finished projects you can make using the designs. My favorite feature is the book comes with a disc for printing all the paper piecing patterns, so no need for scanning or photo copies." --My Paper Crane

"The Paper Pieced Home is amazing and should be in every foundation piecing fan's personal library. Her designs constantly make me smile and that's what I look for in great design." --VerryKerryBerry

"...the thought of anything remotely fussy almost always makes me want to run. Not this! It was a JOY to put together and I was able to do it easily and confidently given all the information that Penny relays in her book. I think it took me about thirty minutes after printing the foundation. Not bad! And pretty cute, if I may say so myself!" --House on Hill Road
