    everyone - this is the anita solomon book on her method of pp. as i see it, the only difference is that you break up a block into sub-units on one sheet of paper and attach WITHOUT separating. in that way, if you line it up right, it will automatically line up perfectly. you can only make a 6" block because paper is 8.5 x 11. so here goes. i hope this is legible. if not i won't continue. remember, this is just the intro.

    well, that didn't work. sorry all. the point is that you fold your paper into units. you paste in your precut fabric shapes. you fold on your precreased lines.
    everything lines up beautifully (it really does).

    i don't see it as time saving. it's a nuisance to precut all those shapes. after everything has been sewn you have creased paper between the fabrics. you then have to go back and tear the paper off, so you can press.

    you can't go over 6", because paper is 8.5 x 11. IMHO, my kids wasted $29.95.

    this is the cover. can you get the idea?

    At least you made a discovery. You discovered that this way of piecing is not for you! I figure we always learn something, even if it is a negative.

    I tried paper piecing and liked it so I bought a book,paper and special pins. When I got everything gathered and ready to start I totally forgot how to do it and can not remember or figure it out. I guess its not for me either.

    I found that if I downloaded the pages to my desktop and then used the on-screen magnify glass to enlarge them, it was very readable. Thanks for the posting.
