Paper Piecing in a Flash


Designer Michelle Thompson has come up with another amazing paper piecing pattern for quilters, this one featuring everyone’s favorite speedster, the Flash. You can find the pattern on Fandom in Stitches, along with dozens more superhero and pop culture paper piecing patterns. I think what makes Michelle Thompson’s patterns so striking is her use of decorative stitching to enhance the details (take a look at all the line work–it’s all satin stitching done by machine!). This pattern is definitely not for the faint of heart, so if you’re new to paper piecing, I’d suggest looking for something with fewer pieces to start with.  You can find all sorts of ideas and even tutorials on Fandom in Stitches.  Go forth and conquer, quilters!

Harry Potter Quilt

So I post this with trepidation this week because it seems like one of those things that should have been posted on this blog a long time ago. I searched and haven’t seen it for a while, so boom:  here you go. I present to you this quilt. Festooned with all things Potter. Geekscore: 87; Craftscore: Infinity +1

The quilt was featured on the Flickr page of Jennifer Ofenstein, who can be found tumbling on and has several other geeky quilted items available on her Etsy store.
