    I just did a search on Paper Pieceing Quilting and it came up with a page full of sites. I hope this helps. I wish you were here so I could show you in person. Just think " I can count so I can paper piece"

    Somebody please tell me how to insert the photo. I am doing "attach files" and choosing my picture but it doesn't insert it. Is there something about hitting "Img">????????? :evil: I did some paper piecing and want to wow you!

    You should just click ATTACH FILE, then BROWSE to find the file you want.
    Once you find the file, you should now have another box that comes up with the name of your file. There should be 2 boxes on the bottom right of that box, one says OPEN, the other CANCEL.
    Click OPEN.
    Your file should then appear in your message box.
    Once it's there, click SUBMIT.
    Should work....

    Okay ladies, here's my paper piecing. the tulip is the one I did before I bit the dust. I actually did 32 of these leaf parts (the tulip is not paper pieced- just the leaves). That is enough for my quilt - with some big borders. Or I may put grass and a picket fence around it if I get some energy.

    Now I did the other two with the advice from Skeat. sure makes a difference. The small stitches and the light box do the trick. Thank you Skeat for all you wrote to help me. Can't believe the kind of help I'm getting from you all.

    By the way, I do have a queen size crazy quilt in my waste basket if I should ever want to sew it. Guess that is the by product of this method.[img]

    the tulip blocks I did before I knew better- but they look nice but what a pain I had!

    it works! thanks. I think the trick is that I had the picture file too big. I downsized it and it took.

    That tulip block is awesome.
    Did you find that on the web or from a magazine?

    SAH, I have that book and I looked up the block - I am in absolute awe! 124 pieces in that tulip block pic - I would have been stark raving mad. What a great job!
