    OH I just found this thread. I love to paper piece. I am going to try to do this. I did the 50 fab paper pieced stars group. I actually completed my quilt. Such interesting blocks. I did the 50 stars scrappy with all of the backgrounds matching. It too a lot more fabric than I thought. I love how it came out. I think I will do this scrappy and maybe have matching background. I love batiks not sure if I will use batiks or not.

    Oh those are beautiful QNS - love them all. You have to decide which color group you want for this quilt. What fun!!!

    I agree with JeanieG, you will pick which colour group you like the best QNS.

    Welcome to everyone, now DD has to pick a name and register on the Board, any ideas girls..(she didn't like my ideas)

    Welcome to everyone Looks like we will have a great group to do this BOM!

    QNS, I love the Floral combined with the Rainbow Forest. But the Tropical Rainbow is gorgeous also, in fact they all are. Not much of a help here

    Mirabelle, what names did you suggest? She's doing the SYE too? Now she has to raid your stash

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I have printed the blocks as well as the links for learning. I appreciate the support and encouragement very much. Now to figure out my fabrics... I will have to buy. Looking forward to seeing more choices the rest of the group pick.

    Vickie, I just tried and they don't. But you still can: when you right click on the patternname you get a drop down menu, choose 'open link in new tab' and you'll get the pattern.

    dublb,

    It is great to see you have joined in on this fun as well. We can work on these together. Since paper piecing is on my list to work on this year, I am all over this -- love the blocks posted so far as well. Guess I gotta go shopping in-house and road tripping. DARN IT ...

    Still missing something: what does "Spike Your English" mean? I was able to download the patterns. They really are great blocks!

    CindyA ... It seems to be the name that QOTS has given the pattern. As to where that came from, I guess only they know the answer!

    Hip Hip Hooray!!!!
    We were all newbies at some time ... this will give you a laugh ... two years ago, I thought PPing was the most stupidest, idiotic and horrible thing. ............. Then I fell in love with it!

    Thank you QuiltE, you always put a smile on my face, love the suggestions. I won't tell you what I suggested as they were all her nicknames from when she was little

    I like to do small/wall/mini quilts so I have played with the size of these and reduced them so the outside of the hex is 6-inches. Now I can get 2 of each block on one page of foundation! Happy pp-ing! Vickie
