VeryKerryBerry's Winter Woolies with a Giveaway
First of all, thank you very much for all the nice comments on my paper pieced skier yesterday. It was an awful lot of hard work and it's really rewarding to read such nice things.
I have another paper pieced project to share with you today! I made this little quilt/table topper using VeryKerryBerry's first paper pieced pattern available for sale on Etsy. Kerry always makes the most wonderful paper pieced designs. The one that is destined to remain my all time favorite is this amazing piece. Kerry asked if I would like to test her pattern. I hope I didn't jump at that offer too quickly... Here is my version of "Winter Woolies" complete with hat, scarf and mittens in tiny paper pieced blocks.
I chose my color scheme around my desire to use this adorable BasicGrey button for the pom pom! The aquas are Hello Luscious, Dazzle and Bliss. The text fabric is Hometown and the grey is an Amy Butler solid.
This is a great beginner pattern for those who are interested in learning to paper piece. Kerry has even included paper piecing hints and coloring pages for you to use while deciding on your color selections.
Check out Kerry's wall hanging using these same blocks here.
Kerry has graciously offered a free pattern to a During Quiet Time reader! To enter, just leave a comment here and I will draw a winner on Friday, October 21 (whenever I have time on that day to do so!).
Kerry has just added, in the comment section below, her desire to give the winner her next pattern for free if he or she has already bought this one. So, there is nothing stopping you now! No need to wait till Friday. It's a win, win.
