    Do you not understand how to piece at all or just piece this particular pattern?

    If you are stumped on just basic piecing, I would really recommend taking a basic quilt class. The skills and knowledge you get at the basic class you can then apply to your specific pattern.

    I agree with Feline Fanatic - you really would benefit from taking a basic quilt class and then move on to your pattern. I learned so much from the one class I took.

    My friend told me about The Quilted Apple in Scottsdale; said it was a really nice shop.
    I agree with feline fanatic - take a beginners class.
    If no shop is offering one, most quilt shops folks will help you get started.
    Good luck

    Welcome from Ohio!

    Check out your local library, they got books and CD to teach beginners. The best, it's for free.
