Five Little Maids

I designed and actually made this one for real! It is interesting going back to something I have done in the past and giving it the EQ treatment. 

Five Little Maids became a class to teach foundation piecing, but I have decided that paper piecing can be taught by some one who actually enjoys the process. I don’t enjoy it, and so it is very difficult to be positive and happy and enthusiastic and encouraging when I don’t like the process I am supposed to be teaching.

I have taken it off my class list, I am happy to show someone how to do it one to one if they are desperate to learn and they have absolutely no access to another person, class, book etc. but I choose not to piece anything together using this method. Ever again, hopefully! Though like most techniques it probably has it’s uses, I just can’t think of a good one! The pattern survives simply because the workshop notes got the publishing treatment before I reitired from foundation piecing!

I did enjoy adding the hearts, which were simply raw edged mini heart shaped quilts, and doing the hair which is Colonial knots worked in two strands of 8 ply yarn, or torn scraps of fabric tied in a bow and stitched in place, or a combination of the two, or…………, and I loved it when one of the class members did five different hair styles on her five little maids. (And the piecing was neat and accurate on mine and theirs.)
