    newbie

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a grandmother of 1 girl and 3 boys. I have 2 daughters so the boys were a nice addition to our family but my granddaughter is wonderful. Love her dearly. Anyway i have taught myself to quilt so consider myself a beginner. Learning every day. Just recently learning how to pp. I enjoy making quilts for project linus and grandkids. Any help on pp would be appreciated. Thanks

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Greetings and welcome from New Hampshire
    I'm an English paper-piecer. Have had no luck with regular paper-piecing.
    I have a friend who excels at it and she is going to teach me her method - so perhaps I'll not make such a hash of it in the future.
    Good luck with yours - you'll get lots of help from Board members.

    Greetings and welcome The trick for me for paper piecing is not working on a complex pattern more than an hour or so at a time cause that is when I start making mistakes. I also use the add a quarter ruler thingy it is a big help
