Did you think that title referred to Mother's Day gifts I made for the moms in my life? Naw, I mean Mother's Day sewing for ME! Part of my Mom's Day gift was a little time to myself that I could spend in my sewing room. Without little "helpers" underfoot. I've been in the mood for some paper piecing and this block has been on my "to sew" list for a couple months. The pattern is from the Paper issue of Fat Quarterly, designed by Joanna Wilczynska of Shape Moth.
I love paper piecing and I'm always surprised when people say they've never tried it or they're intimidated by it. I think of it as one of the easiest kinds of quilting- perfect results without much effort! Ya just gotta sew on the lines!
The only thing I don't like about PP is removing all the paper at the end. Luckily, it was a beautiful day and I sat on the patio watching the kids play in the sandbox and ripped out lots of little pieces of paper.
Mother's Day must be the official Oliver + S holiday. Last year I received the book Little Things to Sew (my most used pattern book!) and this year I got the Family Reunion Dress and Music Class Blouse & Skirt patterns! I'm so excited to pick out fabrics and get started on one of these cuties!
