Up and Away mini is a modern quilt that I designed in early 2016. In June 2016, Up and Away won honorable mention as well as Mark Lipinski’s Judge’s Choice award in the Quilt Alliance “Playing Favorites” Contest. For this project, I used one of my favorite piecing techniques, foundation paper piecing. I love paper piecing because I can design and execute precise design elements. Foundation paper piecing takes practice, but the technique is rewarding and the results are worth the work.
