    OK, time for a silly question, when joining the various pieces of the block, that is after you have removed the paper, correct? Thanks!

    I leave my paper on until I am all done, not sure if that is the correct way but it keeps my block from stretching out of shape.

    So do I. Having the paper on gives you your 1/4" sewing line too.

    But here it is at last. Not a great job, but done finally. Glad I don't have to do a whole quilt this way. I wouldn't live long enough. LOL

    Here is my pic of the Jan 2011 BOM. This is my first attempt on paper piecing and I found it fascinating and hard to put down till I was finished. I had read on thread of varied size of church windows but didn't "get it" till putting together than I made correction. Will know better next time to compare paper templates. Being from New England and it is winter I decided that some Holly Bushes needed to be planted under the windows. I love all the self expressions from everyone as they pick their own fabrics and interpretations. Can't wait to do next one. Thanks

    Mine did that too. I printed it at 111% to make it an inch.
    Thanks for the information.......I used it for the first template, the other 2 were ok.

    Here's my church. I love the plaids even though they got a little wonky above the windows. I can't wait for the next one!

    So here goes my first post. Here is my church block. My first time trying paper piecing. I ran out of my sky blue and had to use another blue to extend the block out to 12 inches. Looking forward to Feb block!

    Tulip and Scrap4evr, Great job both of you on your first PP block! Scrap4evr, I love the way you added depth to your windows.

    Tulip......I like the way you used the grassy fabric on the sides of the church. Makes it look like a "a little church in the Wildwoods". I might borrow that idea.

    Scrap4evr.........I also like the way you added depth to your windows. All the different windows are interesting.

    So much inspiration, I love seeing everyone's blocks!!!
