    I want to try this, it seems to be an interesting way of quilting.

    Any paper piecers out there?

    Ooooooh, yes!! Don't let the How-To's scare you, it's very easy once you get the hang of it.

    I love to paper piece, in fact I have been making our Christmas cards with paper piecing designs. Now I am working on a quilt for our bed with paper pieced leaves. I made another quilt with paper peiced frogs, dragon flies, turtles and water plants. You will get addicted as soon as you catch on.

    The first paper pieced project was this wall hanging. I got the patterns off the internet

    I was just learning and made lots of mistakes but still like it. Someday I may make a new wall hanging and turn this one into a quilt for one of our great grandkids.

    This is one of the greeting cards I have been making.

    Sun Bonnet Sue is one of my favorites.

    I found it while I was surfing one day. The printed instructions have http://www.lejodie.com web site. This was well over 5 years ago.

    Just learned how. So far I really like it. I have a HUGE box of scraps that this would be ideal for. Its a challenge to think/plan in the opposite of the final product. Looking for more patterns. First one was a "Almost Pineapple". Looking for a book of Easy Paper Pieced patterns. I think it may be out of print. Any thoughts out there?

    There are a lot of free paper pieced patterns on the internet. Just google either 'foundation' or 'Paper pieced patterns' and if you want to be specific like 'flowers' or 'birds' etc. You will find how to sites and also the patterns.

    I just started paper piecing and love it - at least until I get totally twisted. I'm working on a Wizard of Oz quilt for my boss and using interchanging several blocks with the windmill, cyclone theme and for my corner blocks I have a 12-in double spin which is paper pieced - It looks awesome and loads of fun. You have to piece a section A & B then sew them together and each block has 4 sets. I'm just amazed how sharp my points are. What fun!!! :-D :roll:

    I've been getting free patterns off the internet. Just do a search for free paper piecing quilt patterns. One of my favorists is: www.quilterscache.com
    These are all blocks and give really excellent instructions. I've started my own pattern book of wish list. Lands, if I could just have more time to quilt I'd be a happy camper indeed.
    Oh, and check out Doak's paper piecing web site. I just ordered a couple of her book patterns. Happy quilting :lol:

    Greetings - I was wondering what your quilt of the wizard of oz looks like. I saw one at the AQS in DesMoines that looked like it was paper pieced but I cannot find out who did it as I would love to have the pattern. Can you help me please.
