Any body ever worked with Linda Hibbert's paper piecing patterns? They are so darn cute and I'm getting up my courage to try one. Her current collection of the wee ones patterns of baby or small animals intrigue me. Her web site is http://www.silverliningsoriginals.com/2008nl.html

Lynn,
I've never tried them. They look very interesting. If you haven't done paper piecing before, they look like they may be complicated.

The wee animals are awesome. My son looked over my shoulder and said--"why don't you do those?" I think I need way more skill, practice, intestinal fortitude to tackle them but I'm tempted :!:

I think the wee is wee animals as in babies. I'm not sure. Let me look. ---- the patterns printed out 8x10 inches. Which isn't too small. But many of the pieces ARE!

I have done PP before, quite a bit of Carol Doak's........these look much, much more difficult! As in a real challenge!

My daughter sent me this email today:

"So, when you need a new project, here are a couple of ideas for you! An appliqué quilt that includes cats, dragonflies, and sea dragons (www.divegallery.com/Leafy_Sea_Dragon__1.jpg, http://oregonmag.com/LeafySeaDragon2.jpg, http://underwaterphotos.com/Dragons_files/image007.jpg)! Or an appliqué “Moth” quilt of different Saturniidae moths (those are the big furry ones like the Luna moth, the Rosy Maple moth, the Regal moth, the Imperial moth, the Polyphemus moth, the Cecropia moth, Io moth, Cynthia moth, etc. – I have pics of many of these, of course! But there are some good pics also at http://www.geocities.com/mothman15/). You know, when you just run out of ideas! :D :D "

All those moths at the geocities web site are absolutely beautiful. And they would be a challenge! And those sea dragons are gorgeous! Hmmmmm.

Wheels are a-turning!

Linda Hibbert

Postby dfrank27 » Sun May 11, 2008 1:52 pm

Yes, I have used Linda Hibbert’s patterns. The “wee” name for her latest patterns does refer to baby animals.

It would be great to have Linda Hibbert as a guest on the Quilt Show. We are spoiled up here in northern Colorado, because we can take classes from her (she lives in Loveland). She even has a Paper Piecing Support Group (that’s the actual name) at the local quilt shop.

Linda uses vellum paper for her patterns and she recommends a size 12 Microtex needle (yes a small needle). Linda sells packages of PPVellum on her website. You can use paper, but you will really appreciate the transparency of vellum and the ease of removal.

Make a paper copy of your pattern as a reference, BEFORE you start cutting the pattern. Linda’s patterns DO NOT include the seam allowance so you must remember that before trimming your fabric away (the add-a-quarter ruler is very helpful tool to remember this). Her pattern cutaway segments are identified by letters of the alphabet and dashed lines. Critical matching points are indicated on her patterns by circles. When directional fabric is needed, she indicates the placement with arrows.

The “wow” factor in Linda’s quilts is how she uses value to achieve dimension.

Linda's Wee Fawn

Postby QuilterLynn » Tue Jun 03, 2008 12:58 pm

I spent ALL day yesterday making the Wee Fawn which is now posted in my profile. These are tiny, tiny, TINY paper pieces! Whew.

But it's cute, isn't?

The rectangle is about 8x10 inches. The flowers are my addition. One to cover a mistake, the rest to make the mistake flower look like it was part of the whole design!

oh my gosh, Lynn. Those pieces must have been really small if the whole thing is 8x10. I liked the flowers. It must have been one of those serendipitous mistakes. Karen

Lynn, that's the cutest little fawn! He must've been a good challenge, being so small. I see no mistakes - only embellishment opportunities :D Great job!

Beautiful job on your fawn, Lynn!

I have the Boston Terrier pattern (of course!) & fabric kit, yet to try, in the Quilt Lair, as the kids call my room! I got to see the originals of all seven of her dog breed quilts in the recent Denver show, they were wonderfully detailed!

I receive Linda Hibbert's email newsletter & really enjoy it! She's very creative & talented, and seems to really have fun! I'd love to take a class from her one of these days, if time allows.
