Paper piecing allows you to use small scraps and non-cotton fabrics to make unique mini quilts. You start with a piece of paper where you have traced or printed the pattern. You place the first piece of fabric on section one then you place your next piece of fabric across the line between 1 and 2 with enough fabric to cover section 2.
Sew on the line, flip over, press to cover section 2 then move on to section 3 and repeat process.
This is a fun and quick way to make individual blocks or combine several to make a mini quilt. The only limitation is your imagination and the fabrics you have on hand.
