    Welcome to the board. Kind of slow tonight but usually you get lots or replies. I don't do paper piecing much but I do know the queen of paper quiltnig Carol Doak has great books. Check her onine site. Others will let you know too. See you around the board. Quilty hugs.
    Just saw you are in TExas. Me too. Bluff Dale is Between Lake Granbury and Stephenville. We are having a get together in Granbury this saturday the 12th at Pizza HUt on Hwy 144. If you are close enough there will be about 12-15 members there. We do it once a month. HUGS

    Look at http://www.quilterscache.com/

    There are many, many blocks of all styles here as well as a practice PP page.

    Also, for PP, I've found Carol Doak's site to be very easy.

    http://www.caroldoak.com/free-quilt-patterns.php

    Cross my Heart and Crazy Heart Patch are fairly easy.

    Don't forget to use the search function here on the board for PP tutorials!

    Greetings from New Hampshire.
    I'm an English paper-piecer, not the Carol Doaks' kind.
