My camera and I are inseparable. It’s my trusty friend and I feel so comfortable with it. Until very recently, I didn’t have the skills to draft a camera quilt pattern where the lens is done with paper piecing only. Once I made the London Tube pattern, I felt a lot more comfortable with designing circles using paper piecing.
After I made the camera with paper piecing only, I felt it would be a little too complicated for someone who is a beginner at paper piecing. So I made a simpler camera quilt pattern where paper piecing is used to make only the camera body and applique is used for the lens. I love both versions and I included both of them in the pattern. You have a choice of how involved you want your block to be.
