Sewing since the age of six and a quilter for many years, author Penny Layman is inspired by everyday household items that connote cozy kitchens and domestic warmth. Here Penny creates 40 paper-pieced blocks celebrating the home and all things in it, while showcasing her quirky sense of humor.

Projects include:

  • Clip Your Tablet Bag
  • Clawfoot Bath Mat
  • Allie-gator Quilt
  • Cast-Iron Block
  • Gardening Apron
  • Sewing Organizer
  • and much more!

Paper piecing allows for incredibly precise blocks, even if the block designs themselves seem complex or make use of irregular shapes. The blocks in this collection include a mix of solids and prints, using the latter with particular effect. In addition to paper piecing, some blocks include needle-turned appliqué, printing, and hand embroidery.

The 10 projects each feature one or more blocks. In addition to complete written instructions for every block and project, the book includes a CD that contains full-size pattern templates for every block.
