The Panda bears live in China, where bamboo grows. And Pandas love to eat bamboo, for 12-16 hours every day. Pandas have black and white fur, but their skin is black under the white fur and pink under the black fur.
P is also for Paper piecing. I love paper piecing, the accuracy, the shapes, the imagery that it affords. Yes, it takes time. Yes, it can get tedious and repetitive. But the pictures that come out of it! If you look at the banner at the top of the screen (where, BTW, you’ll see that the name of this blog has been changed – I was in a mood, what can I say), the photo of the quilt on the left is a combination of piecing (the center and borders), paper piecing (the flying geese swirl units), and applique (the swirly units and the black geese). This was my first attempt at paper piecing, and an early applique project. The original pattern was pieced, with the black geese only appliqued on top. It was a sales person in the quilt shop who suggested converting the swirling flying geese to paper piecing and the applique-ing them on top as well. It was an adventure, but, if I do say so myself, turned out rather well.
Happy paper piecing! Blessings, Peg
