peppermint candies quilt

One block done after joining 8 sections
ironing seams open after removing paper
I have a love / hate relationship with paper piecing.  First I love the accuracy with paper piecing but I hate  the  mess of removing the paper.
This block came together perfectly, look how those seams come together to form the peppermint candy....yeah I love that part!

I'll show the whole quilt after it is released by Quiltmaker mag., this pattern was shown in the  Oct. /Nov. issue but did not look anything like this. :0)  Happy Sewing, Kim

great job! one of the fun things about the mag. blocks is we can do them up in our scrappys and get great results. I probablly wouldn't want to paper piece it.

I am off to play with my dies to see if i can figure out a quickie. cw

Very cute, Kim. I love your side job, sewing up these quilts in a different view. It helps so many people develop an eye for looking at quilt patterns differently!
