Fun and Festive Summer Paper Piecings

Remember summer fun with these fair and picnic paper piecings.
Circus Tent Paper Piecing

Design by Jennifer Perks

Life under the big top is preserved with a fun tent piecing that frames photos taken at the fair. Jennifer pieced the top of the tent together, then set it aside while she assembled the back and sides. Then she layered the sections on the page as shown, using adhesive foam to add depth.
