    Those are beautiful, you did a fantastic job on them, I have not tried paper piecing yet, but up north gave me a pattern I want to try in the near future. It is to bad you don't like it, because your work is perfect. God bless. Penny

    Fast trick - decrease the size of your stitches. I set my Bernina to about 1.2 to 1.5. Small stitches and a sharp needle make the paper removal a LOT easier. Also don't drive yourself nuts with trying to remove every little bit as long as you are going to wash the piece - the bits come off in the washing machine.
    Thank You! I do all that & it isn't hard to take off. Just tedious. Anyone new to paper piecing will definetly benefit by this info though. I really love the way everything turns out. Almost perfect! LOL
