Follow this easy step-by-step photo tutorial and learn how to paper-piece the sun block. You will become a paper-piecing pro! Make one and use it as a wall hanging, add a few to your quilt, or make a whole quilt with it.

This is a 10″ block that I made to test a pattern I was writing (I trimmed it slightly after I took the photo). I used these fabrics (and not oranges and yellows) because I am trying to get more blocks ready for a sampler quilt with this collection. It came out gorgeous (if only I had pressed ...

Winter Gnomes from Made By Marney

Here are my latest additions to my paper pieced Gnome collection.

GNOME IN A TRUCK

GNOME IN A TRUCK is a combination of my 2 favorite things…red trucks and gnomes! I was so happy with this sweet gnome, that I made his girl friend…

GIRL GNOME IN A TRUCK

GIRL GNOME‘s braids have small pieces, which makes this an intermediate level pattern.

GNOME WITH A HEART

This GNOME WITH A HEART has been very popular for Valentine’s Day projects. I’m making a sofa pillow. What are you using it for?

Happy Valentines Day … will you be ...

LUMBERJACK GNOME

I LOVE this super cute LUMBERJACK GNOME. I can’t wait to make my paper pieced block into a cozy winter pillow. What will you do with yours?

A MINI ADVENTURE from That's Sew Kerry

When I Met Tula! 

I don't think I ever told you about the time I met Tula Pink - major fan girl moment, I was really impressed with myself that I actually managed to get whole sentences out and they even made some sense!






There's always that worry that if you meet an idol or someone you greatly admire, they may not quite live up to expectations etc, but she really did! Tula was so kind and down to earth, she walked around the room before hand, talking to everyone, having a little sit down looking at the projects ...

A Question Often Asked




I've had this post rattling around in my head for a while, something has always stopped me writing it, I'm not sure what really but now in the midst of 'isewlation' due to this horrid Coronavirus outbreak it seems like a good time to finally get it out. For those of you that have read the dreaded 'C' word and immediately got put off - it is the only time it appears here.


What on earth are you doing? What's the point in cutting up perfectly good pieces of fabric into smaller ...

Travelling Quilt Bee 2019





A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be part of a Travelling Quilt Bee it was an amazing experience for me, I made some great 'virtual' quilt friends many of whom I am still in regular quilty contact with, as well as being a great opportunity to try new things and develop my skills. This was largely due to the fact that back then I wasn't overly brave when it came to fabric choices, colour palettes or block/pattern choices and had a real tendency to stick to what I knew and ...

Ocean Ponies mini quilt pattern from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’m excited to release a new paper pieced mini quilt pattern, Ocean Ponies! This time, I’m drawing on my roots as a marine scientist and featuring seahorses. I used mine and my husband’s favorite colors for the two seahorses—I think a mini like this would make a great wedding gift for a beach-loving couple!

There’s more, though: as usual, my paper pieced mini quilt patterns include more than one block, but this time, instead of giving you three different sizes, I thought I’d change things up a bit. Since the main pattern is a ...
