    These are links to wonderful sites that will teach one how to paper or foundation piece. If it sounds hard, it's not. I really like this method. There is no precise piece cutting involved, and you are always sewing on a line. Easy as 1-2-3. Take a look.

    I just spent way too much time looking at those sites. Thank you, Norah, they are very interesting. I saw a few patterns I would like to own.

    It is a lot easier than it sounds, Browneyes. Just do what it says and it will work. If it doesn't seem to make sense, jsut do it anyway without thinking it out, and it turns out. Then you can get the gist of it. The double wedding ring class we just had is a good paper piecing exercise.

    There are step by step pictures there, all done by our own PatriceJ.
    It is an excellent study.

    Hi Norah,
    Thanks for the advise. I like the idea of the wedding ring. I downloaded the pages and am going to try it. I will just do it and not think ahead. lol
    Thanks again,
    Linda
