    Oh, Don't be Scared :thumbup: It really does go together easily. If need be, you might want to practice a bit, first!! Good Luck.

    Sulabug, I love it! A beautiful way to start this BOM!

    My first as well, but I'm excited! Let's see if my prediction is correct...I think I will enjoy paper piecing.

    Happy New Year, everyone.
    Sulabug, I love this block you are starting out with. Awesome start!
    I printed my templates out. I think I am planning on making two of each block each month, to end up with 24 blocks for a bigger quilt....we'll see!

    Oh boy ...this is my first paper piecing project! I printed off the instructions on that website for paper piecing so I can practice first. I think the blue batik for sky was a good choice too!

    I just printed out the 3 templates. This will be my first BOM. I'm so excited about all the different houses. This church is absolutely awesome, what a great choice to get started with.

    I love love love paper piecing. I can't wait to get started and thank goodness we have a whole month to make each block, that way I can probably keep up.
    Good luck everyone I can't wait to see all the different, beautiful pictures of each house as we go along.

    I just printed off my pieces. Had to fiddle with the sizing but all ok. I will do the test piece first since this is my first time too! Then on to the House of God. ;-)

    I just printed off 1 page and the 1" test square does not equal 1". Using Opera browser...gonna try IE to see if that'll allow me to resize or print actual size without modification.

    ETA: I was able to print it off and get the 1" test square to be 1" using Internet Explorer.

    If there is a better way, I don't know it. I have to copy/paste into Word (word processing) and resize the pics to "100%". If there is an easier way to print from Firefox, please let me know. TIA!

    Oh, and doing the test piece really helped give me a good idea and to make sure to have enough overlap for seam allowances.

    Dang I wish I didn't have to go to bed this is such a nice block, and did you look at the finished ones on the site? The table runner would have been perfect for my moms B-day tomorrow, Since I am a procrastinator though I will be comming home after a 13 hr night and finishing pillow cases:(

    Thanks for choosing 'God's House' first. What a great way to start off the year and this BOM. Planning on sewing mine at a retreat next weekend. Is it Feb. 1 yet?

    I did it! I did it! I copied and pasted it into my Publisher program and resized the test block to 1 inch! I am so proud of myself. I just learned something new!!...and I bet there will be something new with every block :o)

    What a great one to start off. Will be my first attempt at paper piecing and at BOM but first I need to figure out how to get all the test sqaures the same size. Each one printed a different size.
