    This is probably something so obvious to everybody else, but whenever you all say pp or PP, I don't know what it is.

    It stands for paper piecing. It's a technique for creating blocks where you stitch on paper and trim as you go to 1/4 inch seam allowances. It makes it easier to piece odd shaped and small pieces.

    oh boy, how silly of me... thanks, Amma and Finely.

    I probably didn't think of that since I hate paper piecing. When I'm ready to try it again, I'll come here and ask advise.

    Try the February BOM. It is PP and easy. It makes a really pretty block.

    I'm over 50 and it means something totally different to me (usually requires hurried movement) lol

    Until I started coming to this board, PP always meant "previous poster" to me.
