    The first time I tried PP I had myself thoroughly confused. It took some time to get my head around the regular PP technique where the pattern is printed on the top side of the paper but the fabric is UNDER the paper. Of course you have to pay attention that the fabric is in the correct orientation AND large enough to cover the piece. I finally got it but I didn't like ripping the paper - I didn't have my stitch length small enough.

    Now I sometimes use freezer paper on the TOP of the fabric. I perforate the pattern with an old needle first so I can bend the pattern as needed. I use the zipper foot to sew along the paper. No ripping and I get similar results.

    You don't cut the paper, you sew the fabric to it.

    It's a play on words. When you procrastinate you say "I'll get around to it". So there are the round tuits.

    Here is a link to a quilt I made with paper piecing. It would have been impossible to do with regular piecing. It had 675 pieces. The smallest piece is about the size of my little fingernail. With paper piecing, all the points are accurate.

    You do not cut paper, then fabric in paper piecing= the design in printed on the paper, and sometimes it allows you to accomplish shapes, points that would be impossible any other way. check out the Carol Doak Site to see examples of why some of us paper piece....and go ahead and show me how to do it easier with out paper...
