    Hi there, I did a class last Tuesday as well and loved it. It does give professional looking results, so when I came home I got on the computer and McCalls site have great paper piecing patterns, hundreds of them.
    You will love the site.

    Oh, I'm with you, I love it! It is so much fun to do. I'm still learning, but just did hundreds of flying geese blocks (well...it seems like hundreds :roll: )..they all turned out perfect!

    I LOVE to paper piece and am so glad that you learned. It will give you very precise piecing and is SOOO easy when you know how. Opens another whole world of quilting :lol:

    I too love paper piecing. I have several of Carol Doak's books. I posted awhile back that I was going to do a paper pieced pattern by Judy Niemeyer. Well I purchased the fabric on Sat. The ladies who own a quilt shop in Midwest City, Ok are terrific. I had to have a total of 16 different fabrics. They helped me select 16 different batik fabrics. I can't wait to get started. It takes a day or two to get the paper patterns cut and sorted in the right bags. Judy is very precise. If you take one step at a time and do exacting what she says, I see very little problems. Of course I'm sure I will find 2 or 3 (I know me). I have to have this finished before I pass on to the other side (hopefully from old old age). I told my DH I wanted this quilt draped in my coffin. This is all in fun so please don't anyone take this too seriously. I was told this is one paper piece project that you do a block or two at a time. Now if I could just get my working, paying job to give me more time off------fading out -------- back to realitity. Lunch break is over, got to get back to work.
