    You are a true artist!! That quilt is going to be lovely. After the job you did on your last quilt, I have no doubt that you will do well. With every quilt you make, your soul grows. Watch and see.

    First diamonds and now possibly paper piecing. Gee, seems like every quilt I make I jump into a totally different learning experiance.

    Experiencing lots of new techniques is what makes us well-rounded quilters. Have fun with it flying_v and you'll be so glad you tried something new the next time you need that technique for a quilt you're just dying to make. :) :) I'm sure you're going to do just great!!

    You got a point. But each quilt I've worked on or want to work on uses a completely different technique or medium that I've never worked with before. I go from patchwork made from denim to diamonds that might have to be paper pieced. Who knows? Maybe after this one I'll work on the Zelda map I planned out which involves a crazy amount of applique. I don't know...I would have thought that I would have perfected a skill before jumping to the next one. ...please tell me if I'm not making any sense. lol

    I don't think I ever came close to perfecting any techniques before moving on to something different. At some point, I'd keep doing the same thing until I felt comfortable with it, like applique or paper-piecing. But, there are so many wonderful ideas out there, and it seems like almost every day some talented quilter discovers another one, so I will more than likely never learn them all. But I'll sure try! LOL

    I really think it's ok to try everything that interests you or makes the job at hand a little easier.

    Speaking of paper piecing, what would be the easiest way to go about that? Based on everyones comments I'll probably have to use it.

    Trying new techniques keeps you from getting bored :!: You will be such a good quilter because you are willing to try different things. And when you :!: :D

    FVG,
    Re: Paper piecing
    Do some practice pieces before you start on your quilt. Trust me, you'll smile more later if you do. Do a little four patch wall hanging or a pot holder using scraps. It takes just a little getting used to but once you have the hang of it you're going to love it. Also, if you check out the 'storm at sea' pattern on the internet you'll find your diamonds already designed for your paper piecing.
    Have lots of fun now. That's what it's all about! (I tell you this because I remember my first paper piecing project! :mrgreen: )
