    janRN, I agree with jtquilts that Christmas fabrics would make a beautiful quilt, so that's my vote too!

    marinerparent, I guess you could use a different paper piecing technique, but you will need the book for the block patterns. Hopefully the picture of the sampler quilt I posted helped answer some of your questions.

    Fabric Galore, this is plain paper piecing on foundation papers. You don't have to make a patriotic quilt. The fabric choices are up to you. You could use fabrics from that era, civil war fabrics or even modern fabrics to update it! janRN may do hers in Christmas fabric. What fun!

    I pulled out my box of Christmas fabrics and you all have me leaning in that direction. There's only one problem--I may not have enough and would have to force myself to go fabric shopping. Darn!! LOL. One thing I've learned from all the paper piecing I've done lately is that FQs and other precuts work well so I don't have to buy large pieces. But, darn, another shopping trip. (Can you see me smiling?)
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    Oh, no, janRN, not another shopping trip for fabrics! But, I would be right there with you! Keep us informed on what you decide.

    I'm very tempted but I think I have to pass. I have too many projects already and am behind on most of them! Maybe I will catch up later.

    Jan, I'm so sorry you have to go on another shopping trip

    Anael, glad you're back from holiday. I blame you and the other Pony Club gals for my addiction to paper piecing!! This one is fewer blocks so I'm excited to take on another project. Think about joining us--you know you want to!!

    Oh dear, I'm guilty
    I want to but when I look at my to-do list I don't! I'm still contemplating..... I have to catch up with the Pony blocks before I even consider starting another project!

    Anael, I am relating to your desire to join, yet know maybe you shouldn't! I decided not to join and then this morning I thought about it again!
