I used a 80 weight polyester thread to do my paper piecing. It's thin and I wanted to try it out. I used an 1/8 inch seam allowance since this whole quilt is only a foot square. I wasn't happy with this process because things were beginning to shift as I tried to pull off the paper. I ripped a few seams open and had to make repairs. I'll have to try it again with a larger seam allowance.
I had a lot of fun quilting this piece putting together three different fill patterns: pebbles, paisleys, and a leafy looking line stitch. It was fun, but next time I'll leave the open spaces wider than 1/8 inch because you can barely tell they're there!
I hope you get to quilt today! As this is posted I will be visiting Missouri Star Quilting! More about that soon.
