Okay, I did it!!! I had a ball, and think I'm going to love paper piecing. I have had to rip out a number of seams as sometimes I just mess up something. I am still at the point where I can't figure out what I'm messing up. I've chopped off fabric I'm not supposed to, but I think that will go away as I learn more.
We are making NY Beauty blocks, so it's really fun. I'm doing a dual quilt..two at once. One is black/white/yellow, and the other has Kaffe fabrics as the focals with lots of dots and solids to contrast.
I'll post pix when I can!
Well, good for you!! (I've been wanting to take a pp class but I'm just too chicken!) Can't wait to see your blocks! :D
Way to go!!!! It is quite addicting once you catch on :wink: I can't wait to see the pictures :D :D :D
You can try using a foundation block as a template. Cut out the pieces, use the back side of it facing up (without the seam lines) and your fabric right side up. Cut the fabric 3/8 of an inch bigger than the template until you are more comfortable with it. :wink:
I've been paper piecing a long time and I still mess up. I love how accurate the blocks are, seeing perfect points is thrilling!
