I made these Easter eggs using the Iris Folding patterns I found online at www.circleofcrafters.com/irisfolding. Both eggs are 6" by 8" and prop on small easels for display. To use these patterns for paper piecing, I had to reverse the numerical order to do paper piecing, working from inside to outside as opposed to the paper folding where you work from outside to center.
I recently discovered Iris Folding Patterns at www.circleofcrafters.com/irisfolding. They have lots of free patterns available and are a quick project to complete. Instead of doing the paper folding process, I adapted this for paper piecing, fusing the final shape onto a background fabric and finishing with machine blanket stitching. This one is on a kitchen towel celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
I wanted a green table topper for St. Patrick's Day and saw a topper like this on the Sew Pieceful facebook page. I made a trip to this quilt shop located in Campbell, NY and bought the pattern and fabrics. The pattern is Happy Holidays by Atkinson Designs and has directions for 3 different sizes from table topper up to tree skirt size. I'm looking forward to making this topper again for other holidays.
