Oh, and they are kind of mean.... after making it sound soooo much fun, they won't even become your AA sponsor when you finally get done with the block. hahahahahahaaa...... :) :) :) :) Okay, here is the truth- it was very fun and easy to do once I got my head wrapped around it. Apparently I had to be smarter than a 5th grader to do the block. And everyone on the board were outstanding in helping me muddle through it. Lucky Terri in Guam was the only one up one night when I needed help. I am pretty sure the project (or me) drove her to drink that night.
    Heh Cathy you know how it affects a girl. Joining AA after my last experience with PP. Its stressful but when once you get the hang of it after the waste paper basket is full.. LOL you get addicted.
    I wouldn´t say I actually enjoy PP but it does give wonderful points and makes great blocks.

    Carol Doak is famous for her paper piecing technique and she has a group on yahoo.
    She has lots of tutorials there and like this board the group is friendly, very active and helpful.
    She also has a DVD out called "Teach Me to Paper Piece" I need to review this myself, but I find it very helpful.
    The drawback I find is having to copy each pattern because I don't like messing with my printer.

    I really like to paper piece. Some of you may not have seen this quilt I made for our bed. It is queen size.
