    Thanks, everyone! I really surprised myself with this. I guess I had myself convinced it would be too hard, but it was so easy (with the book). The book I bought with the instructions on this type of paper piecing, and the compass basics and patterns is Judy Mathiesonís Marinerís Compass Quilts: Setting a New Course. Itís two of her quilts that my daughters saw and want for their rooms.

    Izy, yes, I paper pieced, using freezer paper, and Judyís slightly different way. Instead of sewing through the paper, you fold it back at the perforated line and sew against the edge of the paper. Itís soooo easy.

    Harmony, I absolutely LOOOOVE my new machine. Itís a Husqvarna Sapphire 870 Quilt, with apparently the largest opening without moving into the actual quilting machine. It comes with 183? stitches, with umpteen feet, and a buttonholer that is one touch, all automatic, meaning you set the fabric, and the machine stops when the button hole is done. You donít do a thing. Thatís a good thing Ďcause I can sew clothes like thereís no tomorrow, but canít do a button hole to save my life. :oops:

    Iím glad you all like my colours. I was really limited, as my stash is still quite tiny. My youngest has a better eye for colour, and had to help a bit.

    :mrgreen:

    Beautiful job. I too love the colours!Just read about the paper piecing with freezer paper and not sewing through. Will try my next project with that method--will save a lot of time when it comes to not having to remove the paper!!
