Belli Challenge #127 - Paper Piecing

Today's Belli Challenge is all about paper piecing, and I've used this gorgeous Harvest Basket from Eureka for my project. After I colored the basket with Copic markers, I paper pieced the ribbon bow and the two smaller gourds on the right of the pumpkin.

When I was playing around with the paper flowers (Orange1 Collection), I accidentally pulled the petals apart. Instead of trying to tape the petals back together, I started arranging them behind my harvest basket. This makes for an interesting look, doesn't it? It's a fun and different way to use the paper flowers. :-)

Check out what the Belli Girls have created over on the Belli Blog and play along with us this week. We'd love to see your paper pieced creations!!

Have a wonderful day!
