    I second this suggestion. I used one of her free patterns to try out paper piecing. It was pretty simple and made a lovely block. Someday I will use it to make an entire quilt.

    I learned paper piecing by taking a craftsy class. You might try the Craftsy website, they may have some simple beginner paper piecing patterns. If you can, I would look for one that has less 'point matching' to start with. I like paper piecing fun pictoral blocks, but I'm not sure I would have gotten far if I started with a complicated star!

    Many of the quilt magazines have a paper piecing pattern in them. You might find one you like in one of the magazines.

    While not exactly easy, Fandom in Stitches has lots of fun, free paper piecing blocks. You could make as many or as few as you want.

    The best way to learn paper piecing is to use the Thangles papers. Then work up to more difficult patterns. Some shops use the Thangles to make 'buck a Block quilts. You pay a $1 (or more in some shops) and get two strips of fabric that you use with the Thangles to make a block. Next month you get more strips until you have enough blocks for your quilt. You can then purchase a finishing kit.

    I would start with a pattern I like and make a small wall hanging. I made an off "center pineapple pp" and loved working on it and the outcome. Though I did scale it down to a wall hanging.

    I started with the Quilters Cache PPing tutorial.
    It makes a SIAS, so I FC some centres and made a couple of mug rugs.
    Then made a few more and joined them for a small topper or wall hanging.
