    Paper Piecing

    I found a website with oodles of paper piecing ideas, that include the basic paper piecing block. This is not a site for someone who needs detailed instructions, but if you're like me and just need the idea (with lots of different color examples), and really like paper piecing, this may be of interest to you too:

    http://www.wilmakarels.nl/blokken.php?lg=en

    The site is not in English, but with the pics provided, though probably not for beginners, one can figure out the instructions.
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    This is wonderful! It appears to be German - but if you follow the paper piecing it should be fairly easy to follow.

    Translate it with Google. It translated beautifully and was completely understandable.

    Thanks for the link.

    Actually I believe it is Dutch (the web address ends in .nl which is Netherlands) and there is a little English flag at the top right on the first page of the website- if you click on it, the text on the subsequent pages is in English. Great blocks and what a find, thanks for sharing!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    I was looking at that farm one (2003) and thinking you could also use the pictures as a basis for applique. Really neat site. Thank you.

    actually...I went to the top right hand corner and I didn't find an English flag. I saw 3 others I don't speak.
    have been happily divorced from the same guy for 39 years now! Yay!

    Thank you for the link. I had downloaded the Country Life one and didn't get around to making it and forgot all about it! I will add it to my year of paper piecing projects Right now I'm working on vegetables and fruits for my kitchen. I think a farm is around the corner.....
