    paper pieced birdhouse

    My version of the latest "In the Garden" block


    I have become addicted to paper piecing this year. I've heard other people say this before, but now I get it ;-)

    It's beautiful. So springy! I don't like PP, but unfortunately I need to get over it so I can finish a feathered star block.

    Doggramma, I used to feel the same way about PP. It never really clicked with me. I don't know what has changed for me. I really want to get all these blocks done before I snap out of it ;-)

    That is a great block. I have never tried PP, but it is on my bucket list, so maybe someday . . .

    Love it. Some day I'm going to get more serious about paper piecing. I really like the precise nature of it and the challenge it presents. Your birdhouse is so pretty and I love the way you matched up the tree branches in the center area. Can't wait to see more of your blocks.
