I Host Try a New Technique Challenge Today!!!

Hi there! Well, today, I host the Try a New Technique Challenge on Splitcoast. The post can be found HERE. I hope you'll play today. As Linda had already guessed, we are doing gift card holders (or 3x3 cards), but with a catch - Paper Piecing. Check the spelling there - paper PIECING, not paper pieRcing. I've been trying to give you all hints and projects featuring this technique. I think some of you had it, but were a bit too timid to admit it. :) Here are 5 projects that I've created to showcase this simple but elegant technique. Did you notice that Bella's coat was pieced too yesterday?? Anyway, I hope you'll play with me today! It's a TON of fun.

These all turned out so great! Paper piecing is really a fun & easy technique but I rarely think of doing it. Thanks for bringing it to our attention and reminding me of it.
