Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Okay, I am going to give it a whirl, wish me luck everyone!! I am so anxious to see more pictures posted of what everyone else is putting together for their's. This is going to be such a fun project.
If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
I'm new to this group, and am still finding my way through all the threads. This is a project that I've beeen thinking of doing, so I'm in. I have made one NY Beauty, and it is one of my favorite quilts. I'm looking forward to starting in on a new one. It will be fun to piece along with everyone.
I need to get some legal sized papers and then I am in printing business. I finaly have the size right.
DS is doing an errand into town picking up fertilizer and he will pick up legal sized paper too. Can't wait till he comes back.
Boy, I do not know if I am going to be able to join this or not. Everyone has been soooo helpful to me regarding paper piecing. Here is my first attempt at PP. It is a PP block for the Block of the Month with Quilt Story. It is called Wild Block. WHEW!! I feel like I did enough sewing and unsewing on this that it should be a Queen Size quilt instead of a block. I will have to admit that I probably made every error possible while doing this. It was frustrating but ended up being fun. I like the way it turned out. It is true that you need to practice this PP thing. I will practice a bit more and then decide what to do. Again thanks for all your comments and encourgement. What is the trick to not wasting fabric? Maybe I had my pieces way too large. ?? Any ideas?
I have been planning on trying this for a while now.
sustraley, I always make an extra copy of the pattern when the pieces have odd shapes. I use that extra copy for cutting templates. It prevents from waisting much fabric. Just make sure to cut the right way or you'll end up with a mirror piece which doesn't fit. Ask how I know
Your first block turned out great!
