Well, Possum Blossom Patchwork is a great place to start. (And they are one of the Crafty Mummy sponsors.)
One of the keys to beautiful patchwork is precise shapes to piece together. One way to get that precision is to use a method called paper piecing. It requires paper versions of shapes that you use to sew your fabric shapes. Preparing the shapes can take time, which is where PBPatch comes in. They sell pre-cut paper and card shapes for paper piecing in triangles, diamonds, squares, hexagons and octagons. They even sell fabric pre-cut into shapes, and you can custom order particular shapes easily via their website.
As I browsed around, the mixed candy pack caught my eye. It contains 600 papers that are a mix of 6 different shapes. It would be a perfect pack for a patchworker who does a lot of paper piecing, or for a beginner who wants to give it a try. All those shapes are only $25 – 20% off what it would be to buy all the shapes separately. Great value!
