    I signed up for a paper piecing class, but my instructor changed it...I don't think she wanted to teach paper piecing afterall. So, we did a different project. But, I'd like to learn more about paper piecing. Anyone recommend a place to get started? A book, DVD? I did look at past entries in the forum, but most seemed like pictures of projects. :)

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Amma has a wonderful Tute in the Tute section :lol: It has worked very well for me and several others on the board ! And once you have the basics you just keep going, and going, and going :shock:

    Check out Amma's tutorial first. If you need or would like more you can try any one of Carol Doak's books or DVD(if you are a visual person). I have her book with the hearts on the cover- I can't remember the title- and I found it very easy to follow her instructions. It was a lot of fun ans the blocks came out perfect!

    Go to Connecting Threads web-site and then go to Quilt with Us tab ... and on any of the "search" lines type in Paper Piecing. They have a good tutorial and also some free patterns for learning ... I got hooked!
