    No offense to Carol Doack but I hate paper piecing. Don't ask me why I decided to do these. I had to make 24 blocks with 17 pieces in each block. I had to get them done becasue my DD wants the black and white Think Outside the Box quilt (Toadusa), and then I want to make a bunch of Celtic Illusions quilts by Karen Combs.

    At least they are finished! Hooray!

    They came out very good.

    I haven't tried paper piecing yet. But will I hope. Want to be able to try everything then decide what I like best.

    You should be very proud of them!

    They are beautiful!! Paper piecing seems to be one of those methods you either love or hate, from what I've heard. I love it b/c of the precision you can get and just think it's fun.
    But I know lots of people who also hate it :D

    They are beautiful, I can see how much work they must have been. Not sure I would let people eat on them.;) I like paper pieced...if it only has 5 or 6 pieces.
