    I have done small paper piecing (with large pieces) as sections of other projects, but THIS is a first! It's from the book "A Year of Paper Piecing" by Beverly A. Maxvill. Such wonderful designs! After this, I feel like I could paper piece ANY THING! LOL

    That wall hanging is so pretty! Was it hard? It looks really complicated!

    I can't say that it's "hard" , but very exacting and the roses and stems did get tedious, so I'd have to stop for a while. But I did it using the freezer paper method, so at least I didn't have to tear off all that paper when I was done! And with all the bias on this piece, I think having to rip off paper would have left me with the waviest fabric ever! Thank you!

    Very pretty! I love paper piecing, but I've never used freezer paper. I'll have to try that.

    Very nice! I did my first paper piecing this week and seeing yours is very inspiring for me to keep moving forward with it. That was quite a project for your first time. Congratulations on completing such a complex pattern. :thumbup:
