Paper piecing blocks means they stand alone, mixed with other stand-alone style blocks in a quilt. Rarely are paper pieced designs repeated with other blocks to create a distinctly modern, secondary pattern that appears to be unrestrained. But Amy's paper-pieced patterns and 9 quilt designs combine both the precision of paper piecing and a spontaneous appeal. Design opportunities are opened through the repetition of paper-pieced blocks. This creates irresistible, modern quilts with precise--yet improvisational--flavor. Amy's patterns easily appeal to both the modern and the new traditional quilt maker alike.
