The Fractured Paint Box was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing! The project is fast, uses only one foundation block, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project! It is meant to make those new to the process find confidence, understanding, and success!
The foundation papers for the Fractured paint box were designed by Bradley and Judy Niemeyer.
This pattern works with the Quiltworx.com 2-1/2″ Strip Sets, which have 48 strips instead of 40. This strip set makes the 3 x 4 layout of “paint boxes” shown on the cover. The instructions include information for a 3 x 3 layout that uses a set of Standard 2-1/2″ strips (40 pieces) as well.
