    Hi I am Karel Thome, I am new to The Hill country in Texas. We lived in Northern Iowa until retirement where we decided we would not like to move snow any longer :D
    I Havent worn anything othere than shorts since we got here late November 2009.
    :-D :lol: Now the hardest part is being a long way from home and the kids and grandies too.

    I am a quilter for since 1993, I am hooked. And have been from the start,
    My first full size quilt was the Virginia Reel It was beautiful My favorite is a Bow tie with raised centers, anyway i am now attempting to do the Kimona . This is a paper peice quilt block, I do not know where to begin.

    Welcome!

    I also moved to a warmer climate - none of my kids lived near us anyway. Now they are moving back to NJ, my former home! I guess they were waiting for us to leave before they moved back.

    Welcome! You don't live too far from me...Gonzales, Tx. Though originally from Texas, we lived in Northern Indiana for almost 9 years. Was so happy not to have to bring our snow thrower with us! Would love to see some of the quilts you've made!

    Oh, just this evening I got on Youtube and found some good tutorials on paper piecing. Made it so much easier to understand when I could actually watch someone do it. That might be just one of many places to look.

    please note the center folded peice will be between the four squares and you will sew across the top of the block with the folded center peice in between.

    Greetings from Northern Califorina. There are quite a few tutorials on paper piecing in the Tutorial section. I think amma's is very detailed.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-25541-1.htm

    Once you master the paper piecing, then you can translate the process for the Kimonos.

    I'm sure you will get lots of good advice here.

    Try this to get to one of the tutorials on paper piecing. This is part one. She does a part 2 to show how to finish her paper pieced block. I think she presents the information really well.
