    I'm new to paper piecing and found a great video that might help others like me that are just learning this method. I always appreciate when people share something with me that makes my life easier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uaW26igygE

    Kim, that's so nice of you to share. This is the very thing that makes this board so wonderful, among other things!
    PP can be very confusing and that's a great tute.
    Hugs, Sue

    I found it a few days ago, watched it and thought she explained it so well. I'm trying to make a block right now that uses this and it's a good thing I have lots of fabric. LOL!!!

    Have bookmarked it. Thank you you for posting the site. When I've tried paper piecing it seems backward to what I want to do and this is a good tute.

    Thanks for sharing. I always screw up when I'm paper piecing.

    Kim,

    Thanks for the tute. I'm just starting a paper pieced quilt and have yet to decide the patterning. Still working on prototypes. I'm also new to quilting. This was a great big help.

    I was paper piecing yesterday. Forgot how time consuming it can be.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I'm sewing a lap throw with many pieced blocks, and my most frequent mistake is not using enough fabric. It looks fine -- until I turn it and realize it's angled the other way!

    That's an excellent one, but I found one on this site (somewhere) that I like better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv2gK...eature=related
    The reason I like the second one better is because when you're doing seams that have a great angle to them, it easier for me to have trimmed the seam first. Then it seems easier to position the new fabric and have it cover and it seems easier for me to see what's going on.

    I'll watch this one too. Thanks!
