Thank you to those people who posted tutorials on how to do paper piecing. I have been sitting patiently and teaching myself how to do it for the past couple of days, and now I think I finally have the idea.
I have a question though. I am still not very confident on the sewing machine, so can paper piecing be hand sewn? If so, what sort of stitch is best to use for stronger results? Even if I was slick on the machine, I must admit I find the hand sewing very relaxing and far more interesting.
I found it easier to use non stick interfacing for the "paper" - and that way it can stay attached to the piece. It seems to work ok.
