    I found a pattern that said it was "quick pieced". Is that paper piecing or something else?

    It probably means that whatever is being made is going to be made fast. Can you tell us more about where you saw it?

    Depending on the pattern, there could be some short cuts presented that make it "Quick pieced".

    It could simply mean that you use large pieces.

    The pattern is by Pam Bono called "These Boots".

    The boots are maybe paper-pieced.
    The star blocks could be strip pieced.

    MTS, Sounds like a winner to me! Now what does she REALLY mean by "Intermediate"...?

    Blew up the picture to look at it again.

    I think that quilt is intermediate level. Even really confident beginner.

    Look at what's involved:

    The little white stars are regular sawtooth blocks - so that's just a bunch of flying geese (which, I see, you're already checking out).

    The big stars are most probably strip pieced - a la Lone Star.

    I just can't figure out, without seeing the directions, how she's doing the boots. But pieced or pp, the pieces are big enough and shouldn't be a problem if the directions are followed correctly.

    While generally a bit too rustic for my style, it's kinda growing on me. ;-)

    And it looks fabulous in that log cabin setting.

    it is where you have stips and then put them together and mark for half squares then sew 1/4 from marks on both sides it is still in the long strip . Now cut on the marked lines
