Old Year, New Year and a Giveaway

I was away again. I spent some wonderful time in Poland with my family and now I 'm ready to face the challenges of the New Year :)

2013 was quite a succesful year to me (although less sewing-focused than the last one):

- from personal highlights  - I got back to work and I got engaged :)
- there were some new publications of my quilts and two more are planned for this year
- I held two workshops at Fat Quarterly Retreat in London with Julianna
- I got two wonderful sponsors - Robin's Patchwork and Craft Fabric
- I've sewn really many PP blocks this year... I guess 2013 was a PP year for me :)
- I started next pictorial quilt, which is very important for me as I planned to do it for a long time already

Ach, bylo milo... Swieta spedzone wraz z rodzina, bieganie po sklepach w ostatnim momencie, gotowanie, odwiedzanie tych, ktorych sie tyle czasu nie widzialo... Brakowalo mi tego. Teraz czas na powrot do codziennosci :) 
2013 byl rokiem zmian dla mnie. Zmian raczej zyciowych niz szycioych - wrocilam do pracy po drugiej przerwie, byly zareczyny :), bylo tez kilka waznych zmian w rodzinie, ktore co prawda bezposrednio mnie nie dotyczyly ale bardzo ciesza. Szyciowo - pojechalam do Londynu na Fat Quarterly Retreat, do sponsorow na moim blogu dolaczyly dwa super sklepy patchworkowe Robin's Patchwork i Craft Fabric, szylam duzo blokow PP (jak tak popatrze na projekty z 2013 to wyglada, ze praktycznie tylko PP szylam) i zaczelam dlugo planowany art quilt:


Plans/goals for 2014?

- definitely most part of the first half of the year will be focused on preparing the wedding
- finally I want to buy threadmill (I want to learn to run as an addition to my daily training but there's no way I will run outside in the winter)
- sewing plans - to finish one pictorial quilt, make another one till April and send them to quilt shows
- going to Prague to attend Prague Patchwork Meeting (to be decided in April)
- finishing Paper-ARRR! Piecing Adventures series
- I also have 2 or 3 quilt designs waiting to be made into real quilts... maybe in the second half of the year?
- enjoying life and being happy :) (that's quite a challenge as I'm usually grumpy ;) 

Co planuje w 2014? Zdecydowanie wieksza czesc pierwszej polowy roku bedzie poswiecona przygotowaniom do wesela. Planuje tez zakup biezni, bo juz czas nauczyc sie biegac, a nie chce czekac az sie zrobi cieplo (trenuje regularnie ale wiecie, w razie apokalipsy zombi to daleko bym nie przebiegla... ;) czas to zmienic). Szyciowo - chce najpierw skonczyc art quilt, ktory lezy na podlodze w pracowni i zaczac drugi, ktory powinnam skonczyc do kwietnia. Chcialabym je wyslac na wystawe do Pragi i moze tez do Birmingham. Planuje tez w kwietniu pojechac do Pragi na Prague Patchwork Festiwal jezeli sie uda. W planach jest tez dokonczenie pirackiej serii blokow PP i moze w drugiej polowie roku uszycie quiltu czy dwoch (wzory czekaja juz od daaawna gotowe). 

Now about the giveaway...

When I came back from Poland I found a package waiting for me with copies of Playful, Little Paper-Pieced Projects - a book compiled by Tascha Bruecher with many wonderful PP projects designed by people you for sure know from their blogs and websites. Mine is the snowflake which you can see on the cover:

Kilka slow o rozdawajce... Po przyjezdzie z Polski czekala na mnie paczuszka z kopiami najnowszej ksiazki Tachy Bruecher - Playful, Little Paper-Pieced Projects. Jest to kompilacja wzorow PP zaprojektowanych przez quilterow, ktorych pewnie znacie z ich blogow i stron internetowych. Moj blok PP to platek sniegu widoczny na okladce:


In my opinion it's one of the best book for modern quilters out there. Wide range of original and fresh projects, various difficulty levels, well designed... eye candy. It starts with 12 PP calendar blocks. In addition, each of calendar blocks was used in a small project:

Jakis czas temu pisalam juz troszke o tej ksiazce. Wedlug mnie jest do jedna z najlepszych pozycji na rynku dla quilterow szukajacych swiezych i oryginalnych pomyslow. Pierwsza czesc ksiazki to projekt quiltu-kalendarza z 12 blokami tematycznymi. Dodatkowo, bloki zostaly wykorzystane w malych projektach - torekach, poduszkach, etc.


I've made a snowflake block for January and a table runner using 3 snowflake blocks in different sizes:

Ja zaprojektowalam platek sniegu, ktory uzylam do uszycia zimowego bierznika:



There are some amazing PP projects in this section of the book, like the bicycle block (and a bicycle basket) by Julianna:

Moi faworyci to blok Julianny i jej koszyk rowerowy:


Or this beautiful chair cushion by Penny Layman:

I ta sliczna poduszka z blokiem zaprojektowanym przez Penny Layman:


Second section of the book is filled with small projects using PP paterns:

Druga czesc ksiazki to zbior malych projektow z wykorzystaniem wzorow PP (oczywiscie innych niz te 12 kalendarzowych blokow):


It's a must have book for quilters. And I'm not writing that because my project is in this book. I really, trully believe that this book is awesome and totally worth buying.

Giveaway:

And now you can win a copy of the Playful, Little Paper-Pieced Projects by writing a comment under this post. I'd love to read about your experience with PP. Did you already try it, or maybe it's on your to-do list in 2014? 
I will randomly choose a winner on 12.01. 

Rozdawajka:

Jesli chcialibyscie wygrac kopie ksiazki, napiszcie komentarz pod postem. Bardzo chetnie poczytam, jakie macie doswiadczenie z PP. Szyliscie juz kiedys blok PP czy moze dopiero planujecie sie uczyc tej techniki? To cos dla was czy raczej wolicie poswiecic czas na inne techniki patchworkowe?
Zwyciezca zostanie wylosowany przez Pana Randoma 12.01.

  5. I tried paper piecing at Fat Quarterly the two years ago and cried. Since then I have persevered and now I LOVE IT! I would prefer to paper piece now than regular piecing! I missed taking your class this past retreat (wish I had but I have the typewriter pattern). I love the projects in the book and my fingers are crossed! Wishing you a Happy New Year!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I am surfing the web as part of my resolution to reconnect with my creative side and found your site. I tried quilting years ago and was somewhat successful, on my own. Imagine how I might do if I had such a wonderful book to learn from?
    Happy, healthy and productive New Year to you and your readers.

  7. i absolutely love paper piecing.. it's my favourite way to piece a block! i find that i can get more intricate designs, more precisely than if i tried to tradition piece them. LOVE it!! thanks for the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I really love paper piecing, although it frustrates me at times!! I have several projects like a Halloween quilt that I am hoping to finish! Have a Happy New Year to all!

  9. I tried paper piecing for the first time in 2013 and I'm hooked! Totally!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have withdrawal if I don't make a paper -pieced block once in awhile. I've started a wall quilt for above my living room window that will have paper - pieced bird blocks alternating with a tree block. I hope to make one each month.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Paper-piecing was the first piecing technique I tried and I love it. I only started sewing in 2013, so have not yet sewn much, but I plan to practice lots of paper-piecing in 2014. Your wonderful feather pattern is definitely among my goals. Btw, the most complicated PP project I have finished so far is the amazing fox from your Forest QAL, thank you so much for it :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm not great at paper piecing, but I did more of it in 2013. I would love to do more in 2014 and increase my comfort zone. Thanks for a chance to win! (This book is on my wish list.)

    ReplyDelete
  13. oh my, I would love to have this book. I made your feathers this year, and have gone on to learn more about paper piecing in general. Thank you so much for sharing your designs with us.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love foundation paper piecing. A friend taught me how when I first started quilting, and I also took a class with Jane Hall at Quilt University. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love paper piecing because the end result usually looks like it should. My favourite and most complicated has been the Puffin I made. I was in your piecing curves class and still have the typewriter to finish.
    Congratulations on the book, it looks like it contains some fabulous projects.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Przede wszystkim życzę Ci Joasiu spełnienia wytyczonych celów na ten nowy 2014rok.
    PP już próbowałam, wciągnęło niesamowicie i wciąż mam ochotę na nowe bloki... Ksiażka byłaby niesamowitym źródłem nowych inspiracji, wyjatkowo podoba mi się płatek śniegu...

    ReplyDelete
  17. If I don't win this I will definitely buy it. I agree that it looks like one of the most fun and fresh PP books put out in a while!
    My goals for 2014 is to finish my Dr. Who and Forest PP projects....Dr Who for my girl and the Forest blocks for myself!:)
    Congratulations on the upcoming wedding and the book and I look forward to seeing your lovely creations in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  18. PP is not my fav technique but I'm always thrilled with the outcome.
    Your work is fab as usual. Prague is definitely worth the visit but I'm not so sure about PPM. I went there last year for the very firt time and it wasn't what I expected. I'll go there again this year as well since it's more social thing to me. I had great time with the ladies I only knew from internet. All the best in 2014!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've only done it one time and was thrilled with the result, but the pattern was really simple. I'm hoping to try some more in 2014

    ReplyDelete
  20. Po pierwsze gratulacje!!! Jak to miło usłyszeć, że 2013 był dla kogoś dobry;)

    PP wciąż mnie onieśmiela, ale te projekty w książce są bardzo pociągające - może w końcu bym się odważyła.

    Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really love to PP blocks. It's an endless possibilities sewing world! This book is on my wish list already.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have never tried paper piecing as it terrifies me. So many of the comments above express love of the method. I would love to give it a try. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love love love PP, just don't do enough of it!!! Happy New Year and congrats on the engagement.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I recently started trying out paper piecing after I was doodling and designed a block that I thought wouldn't be too easy to piece regularly. It worked out well. I'd love to win this book to get more practice at the teechnique. The backgammon board and snowflake look really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This looks a great book!
    I've done a little PP and I'd like to do more!

    ReplyDelete
  26. what a lovely book thanks for this give-away

    I tried PP about 2 times, and Im still totally scared of it, but its one of my goals for this year

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm really enjoying paper-piecing and I'm making a quilt at the moment that has a lot of paper-pieced blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm a beader and crocheter but have always been in love with old hexagon quilts and paper-peiced quilts. We used to have a butterfly quilt that got used to rags. I am still working on my first quilt (logcabin made with thrifted plaids and a really cool pine tree fabric I found for around that outsides of the blocks). I've been making hexagon fabric jewelry (cuz that's what I'm best at - jewelry). Your quilting blog is the first one I've followed and I am going to try out the PP blocks that you challenged people with - I FINALLY found freezer paper 2 weeks ago!!! So - in short - I'd love to win the book, I hope it's in english! I am looking forward to making a quilt entirely out of the feather pp pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooo, ooo, pick me, pick me! I would love to have this book. Yes, I've done a fair amount of paper piecing, especially lately. I was incredibly inspired by the Forest QAL. Though I wasn't able to join in at the time, I still have the patterns nearby for when inspiration strikes me. Thank you for being YOU, and for sharing such great stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  30. As I said on Julianna's blog, I would love to win the wonderful book. I have done a fair bit of paper piecing, and have had some of the best teachers ever, especially at the FQR. I hope you have a wonderful year and achieve your goals.

    ReplyDelete
  31. In a cupboard lies a colorful UFO, a 1/4 of a !New York Beauty star. Not in love with the fabrics anymore... Would love to try some PP again, so fingers crossed!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Najlepsze życzenia na Nowy Rok! niech będzie dla Ciebie szczęśliwy i wyjątkowy! Książka rewelacyjna! A PP bardzo długo mnie mocno absorbowało, teraz mam od niego czas odpocząć ale na pewno jeszcze wróci bo w domu czeka napoczety blok z leśnego QAL.

    ReplyDelete
  33. PP kusi mnie już od jakiegoś czasu, ale jeszcze nie odważyłam się spróbować. Jakby "Pan Random" mnie wylosował w moje urodziny, to z książka już musiałabym spróbować ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. i need this so i can try it this year, thanks

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Joanna! Thank you for a fantastic give away! I guess last year was Paper pieced for me because I did it for the First time and I feel that most of the year went with Paper piecing. More is coming this year and hopefully many creative quilts. I wish you wonderful year - it will be exciting for you with the wedding! x Teje

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've tried it a few times and I was satisfied with the result because it gives a really precise work. I'm sure that in this year it will continue...
    Happy new year!

  42. Mój pierwszy wzór pp to słoiczek na konfitury - zaprojektowany przez Ciebie:), uszyłam go na warsztatach patchworku we Wrocławiu, prowadzony przez Gosie Quilt my way. To było fajne doświadczenie. Marzy mi się uszyć rower bo uwielbiam jeździć na rowerze, a teraz marzy mi się uszyć taki koszyczek na rower - fajnie byłoby mieć taką książkę - łatwiej byłoby się zmobilizować... póki co jestem pełna podziwu dla Twojej kreatywności "pp" i trzymam kciuki za przygotowania do ślubu , pozdrawiam Asia

  43. gerade entdecke ich wieder pp für mich - mal sehen wie es sich entwickelt

  45. I finish only one (first) work in PP "Christmas garland" (http://obormotness.blogspot.ru/2013/12/blog-post_18.html). Very interesting, I want to try more. Thanks for chance

    ReplyDelete
  46. Chciałam tylko skomentować Twój rok, gdyż książki raczej nie potrzebuję:)))
    W ubiegłym roku wiele miałyśmy wspólnego, pp górowało, do tego FQ Retreat (za który bardzo Ci dziękuję:). Cieszę się, że miałyśmy okazję się spotkać (i to nie raz:). Fajne masz plany na 2014 r., do tego motywujące innych (np. art quilt - pora o tym pomyśleć; pomysł z bieżnią i z dbaniem o siebie też do mnie przemawia, ja nie uciekłabym nawet przed zombie bez nóg:D). Życzę Ci wszystkiego najlepszego w 2014 r., przede wszystkim udanego wesela!
    PS. Jest mi niezmiernie miło, że podoba Ci się mój projekt z książki.

  47. When I was a beginner quilter, I loved PFP because it made so many difficult designs possible. Lately, because of designers like you, I have re-discovered my love for paper piecing. Thank you and thanks for the chance to win that very interesting book ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I LOVE paper piecing and especially the complicated designs with so much detail. Paper piece was on my must learn list in 2013 and i completed two BOM that was completely PP. Forest QAL was the best!

    ReplyDelete
  68. the book looks amazing! I learnt to paper piece last year following Quiet Play's BOM, I really love the technique

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ja dopiero raczkuje z PP. Skończyłam rok 2013 skromnie: z pierwszymi 3 uszytymi wzorami PP, za to mam całą masę pomysłów na kolejne projekty w 2014 :D
    Gratuluje publikacji w książce. Bardzo zaintrygowało mnie jabłko na ostatnim zdjęciu :) Idealne do mojej kuchni ;)
    Pozdrawiam i życzę Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku zarówno prywatnego jak i szyciowego :)
    Ja nie mogę się już doczekać Twoich art quiltów...

    ReplyDelete
  70. Tried it for the first time this year and love it! Now I want to learn how to make my own designs.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love paper piecing - I wish I did more of it! I just forget about it - or maybe I just haven't found the right pattern. I love the bicycle pattern you showed. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Życzenia już były:) i mogę je powtarzać tak długo aż się nie spełnią. Podsumowanie Twoich dokonań robi wrażenie, szczerze gratuluję i książki i magazynów i wystaw, podziwiam Twoje prace od bardzo dawna, jestem nimi oczarowana - wyrafinowaną kolorystyką w quiltach, artyzmem art. quiltów i bezmiarem pomysłów na PP. Sama z tą techniką zetknęłam się ok.3 lata temu i moja pierwsza praca to duży quilt słoneczkowy który miałam przyjemność prezentować w tym roku w Berlinie "Polski Patchwork - tradycyjny, współczesny, nowoczesny" , potem było kilka małych projektów, potem kilka zaprojektowanych prac czekających na czas i wenę a potem mój kurs poświęcony tej technice. Nie będę oryginalna, prac zamieszczonych w książce nie znam ale płatek śniegu ma wszystko to co ma w sobie zima a koszyk Juli też bardzo mi się podoba :) A... jeszcze bieżnia :) mam taką i nie biegam ( starość ) ale bardzo szybko chodzę - fajna sprawa :) dziękuję za rozdawajkę :)

  73. congratulations on a gorgeous book. I learnt to paper piece in 2013 and loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I tried it just before the holidays, I got a little stuck and asked for some advice, I got some really great tips, so I will give it a go again when I find the right project. Maybe this book could give me a few.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I really love paper piecing, although it frustrates me at times!! due to fabric waste, I need to learn to cut my fabric... I have studied it a bit this last year and made some small projects.. I want to do a LG Quilt with my Lucky Star Bom blocks, just need to practice patients this year.. lol

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am taking my first quilting class ever this winter. I'm doing something on my bucket list!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I rediscovered PP in 2013 but did mostly geometric shapes, would love to try more pictorial shapes in 2014. My 2014 goal is to simplify and enjoy the journey more vs.being stressed out about timelines, and obligations.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Paper piecing is on my to do list for 2014! Would love to win this book and get started. Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I have a love hate relationship with paper piecing. I have only done two or three projects, and I love how you can get perfect points and a more diverse range of blocks from it than regular piecing. But I can never seem to get my machine's tension right so stitches pull out when I remove the paper. It is frustrating, but I like paper piecing so much that I keep trying to make harmony between the paper and my machine. I am currently working on you her gearing up pattern and hopefully it will go smoothly!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love your snowflake table runner! I've become pretty good at paper piecing this year and look forward to doing more of it in 2014.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Beautiful table runner -love the calendar! I really do like PP, but have to mix it up with regular piecing to get some of my 'stash' moved with bigger blocks and use of more fabric... Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  82. A cóż to za przygotowania do wesela???? Do Twojego??????????

    Bardzo pracowity i wybitny rok za Tobą! A i wiele zadań postawiłaś sobie na ten rok!!!!
    Tak trzymać! A ja będę trzymać kciuki za Twoje sukcesy! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  83. My first paper piecing project was your Vespa pattern, which really turned out great :) apart from that I have not done much else, although I really enjoyed it.
    Thanks for the giveaway! Happy new year!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I truly enjoy paper piecing. I especially like the chair pattern in the book. That would be so cute around the edge of a table cloth for an outdoor table. Thanks for all the patterns you share.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This book looks very interesting. I am always looking for inspiration

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am very new to paper piecing but I like to jump right in and try new things. Love the snowflakes!

    ReplyDelete
  88. This book is right up my alley! I wanted to try and find it at a book store first to make sure I like enough of the patterns to buy it, but I love your snowflakes so much I might just buy it anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Awesome book and congratulations on being published!!! How fun :^)
