    Isn't it great when your points match? I have always had trouble getting my points to match up. I taught myself to paper piece. I live to far from anyone who gives classes on it. I have made several paper pieced quilts and I have several more in the works. It is really addictive.

    Have fun this weekend. :D

    I also am a hands on learner, so I guess I will have to take a class this fall or winter.

    I am hoping my local shop offers a class soon. I just finished a regular beginners class this week (as soon as I figure out how to post a picture I will !!!). I had a great time, and ended up with a very acceptable wall hanging. To me it seems paper piecing allows beginners to do a little more complex blocks..maybe wishful thinking?? Anywho, I'm dying to try it.

    I had time to play with paper piecing a few weeks ago, and I was amazed at what professional-looking results you can get with just a little practice. Glad you had fun, and now you have a new "specialty"! Hope you'll post pics soon.
