    I have two quilts started using paper piecing. It is fun and quick and you can get a couple quilt blocks done in an evening. The points are pointy and it is a very accurate block when completed.

    Do you subscribe to Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims' The Quilt Show? http://www.thequiltshow.com/os/blog.php I'm impressed by their Blog and the Subscription-only show. I taped a webcast with them that should air late in 2011. In fact, Alex demonstrated a few techniques with me. Me, I can't talk and rotary cut simultaneously.

    Thank you so much for answering and I'm so happy I asked.
    I wondered if it really was a accurate and 'easy' method.
    I found your books, but couldn't get a 'taste' of them on Google books.
    But I watched the link of CT now and I understand that method a lot better. I even do have vellum from my card-making-days ;-).
    Of course I tried the video's ( thought I might be lucky LOL) but no!.

    I am working with thangles, and love that, so I decided
    I'm going to my LQS this week, I'll ask if she has the books and otherwise will buy it online .
    I noticed you have written 3 books, I think I 'need' the 2 about blocks ;-).
    Once again thank you for taking the time to answer, I'm glad you did.

    Dya



    I sew this way often and can answer your question. The truth is I invented this method. I made a video detailing it in 2003 with HGTV for the Simply Quilts show.

    Unfortunately, the segments can only be seen on U.S. computers so you are unable to see them in the Netherlands.

    However, the series of 14 pictures here
    http://www.ctpub.com/client/client_p...ISPP_step1.cfm
    should give you an understanding the process. I hope this helps.

    Thank you, great tip too.

To sew ALONG the paper edge, I use the zipper foot and move the needle as close to the edge as possible. Great method!

    Dya,
    Have you seen this link? Some directions after all.

    Printable directions: http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/nine-pa...ock/index.html You will see tiny "+ " symbols on images. Click on the "+" to enlarge images.

    Accompanying paper pattern is linked on this page:
    http://makeitsimpler.blogspot.com/20...ion-block.html

    While someone might say, "That's such an easy block, why would anyone choose to paper piece it?" I chose it in 2002 to record for television in January 2003 because cutting its 2.5 inch patches, rather than an odd size, would be attainable by most of the audience. And frankly, I enjoy paper piecing that block. The Nine-patch Variation demonstrated the block is entirely pieced on one uncut sheet of THIN vellum and it's unnecessary to true-up its triangle squares.

    ...What doesn't get cut up need not be matched up and pinned together again.
