A little bit about Heidi-

Hi!  I am Heidi Grohs!  I am a quilter of 16 years and still learning. Every. Single. Day!!



I am currently enjoying my dream job.  Wife to a wonderful husband and staying at home with my four boys (16, 13, 10, and 2) while running my own small home business.  You can find me at my blog Buttons and Butterflies (www.buttonsandbutterflies.com).  

You can also find me doing special projects over at another blog. I have block and quilt project tutorials, including a quilt tutorial, Spiders and Webs (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/10/spiders-and-webs-quilt.html), for the Moda Bake Shop (www.modabakeshop.com) at my blog.My last quilt was a Giant Star for a friend's newborn granddaughter. 



After the loss of our daughter in 2009, I digitized her footprints and embroidered them on her quilt.  Other mothers that had lost babies became interested to have their babies' prints on their special blankets/quilts.  My charity Butterfly Kisses (http://jamiesbutterflykisses.blogspot.com) was born!



A year ago, I became a proud owner of a longarm machine! Recently, I have decided to expand my business to longarm quiltilng services.  I will be announcing the official opening along with the website on my blog in the very near future!

For this row Heidi has decided to take us down the English Paper Piecing road.  She does a wonderful job showing you how, so please don't feel scared to give it a try!  I love the idea of making them different sizes to attach to the background piece. This is a great week project to take along car rides and runa rounds {when others are driving of course}

She includes step by step plus the templates to use for the pieces. Perfect! I am trying to decide to go– busy background with snowflakes that pop or simple background with patterned snowflakes. What are you going to do?

    I had never done paper piecing before, I’m not one to do ‘putsy’ projects, but it wasn’t too bad. Doing a smaller project like just the snowflakes, made it easy once I got myself going on it. I don’t know that I’d ever do a whole quilt top with paper piecing, but now I can say that I’ve tried it. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. ha ha.

    good for you! it is funner to try a new thing in smaller doses. then you don’t feel overwhelmed and then never finish the project.
