Welcome to my blog and today it is my turn to share with you my interpretation of Tickled Pink. My first thought when reading the title of this hop was of a feather - let's face it there is nothing more ticklish than a feather. Now to work out what was the best way to go about this led me to Pinterest of course. Feathers of all shapes and sizes confronted me but one kept leaping out and that was to go with paper piecing. I love the accuracy of this method but for some reason my brain does not do backwards and upside too well but I perserved with a
bit lot of unpicking and for anyone who has had to unpick all those teeny tiny stitches knows just how time consuming, frustrating and annoying it is.
Those teeny tiny stitches are needed in order to rip the paper off at the end without unpulling the stitching. This is also a drawback of this method.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
The feather looks super cute!
And a very pretty feather too.
It looks as light as a feather too...such pretty colours. Well done Karen...xox
Your feather looks fabulous! Great idea for the hop ;-)
Oh that's a great idea for this hop, and so sweet! xx
Great feather! I am like you I appreciate the precision of paper piecing but struggle to think that way.
Well done persevering, beautiful feather.
So cute. You've had fun with your tiny pink scraps
Kudos for your persistence, and of course you have created something beautiful. Hang in with pp. It gets easier, and is so much fun!. Thanks
Your feather is beautiful! I love pp! I use freezer paper so no papers to remove when finished.
Great job with your pink feather!
Love that feather! I hope you think it was worth all the ripping out of seams. Thanks for sharing!
What a fun "tickle" project...well, unless you are un-stitching things! LOL!! Paper piecing used to drive me crazy, but finally I got my brain wrapped around it and I do love a good paper piecing project from time to time now. Hang in there with it, it's fun once you "get" in the groove. :-)
Beautiful feather! What a great way to use up smaller scraps. I understand you pain in ripping out those tiny stitches. Thanks for sharing!
A sweet little quilt it is. Great for using some scraps too.
I love your tickled pink feather - brings back memories of doing exactly that!
Beautiful feather! Thanks so much for sharing!
The feathers are gorgeous. Your choice of PP was great. I love the accuracy, too. After my PP pineapple quilt is done, I'm hoping PP will be as natural as sewing.
Your Tickled Pink Feather quilt is so cute! Thanks for sharing!
A Very lovely feather!
What a gorgeous feather, Karen! I love the variety of fabrics in it.
love the feather❣️ now I need to find a pattern.
Happy Valentine's day💗
Very pretty feather!
Fabulous pink feather.... FPP is a challenge but looks so good
I am so tickled with your pink feather. It is so perfect and is a great project. Thanks for joining and inspiring!
Your feather is adorable!
Awesome job! I am not fond of paper piecing so I applaud your perseverance. It looks really pretty.
wonderful feather. your idea tickled me. yes I really did write that. I generally don't paper piece for the same reasons that you noted. I did find that the last time I did each piece first with bigger stitches, flipped it and made sure it fit and then went back and did the little stitches. It was a bit of a nuisance but less frustrating than ripping tiney stitches or throwing the project in the trash in temper.
Very cool! I really like your pretty pink feather. I've enjoyed paper piecing since I discovered it, and don't mind picking out the papers. Thanks for sharing!
I love paper piecing, and well done on your feather idea!
Who can't be tickled by a feather? And a pink feather at that! Cute, cute.
Pretty feather. I can relate to trying to stitch a paper pieced feather.
Your feather turned out great!
What a sweet pink feather! Good job on persevering through the stitch picking. It really does get easier as you do more of it! I know because I don’t do backwards well either and had to just keep trying! 😉
I'm a bit the same with foundation piecing - I do like doing it - but getting rid of the foundation?? not so much fun - I have printed onto very fine vilene and that is easier as you can leave it in.
But I love the feather.
