that quilters' cache has mostly paper piecing patterns now??

Makes me sad. I don't like to start learning something new when I still haven't the hang of my first stuff.

~ sigh ~ I'm slow.

Blessings, ( I need 'em)

Yeah, I noticed that and you have to watch out when you print. I noticed that my printer wasn't printing out the correct size and there's no way to adjust it before it prints. I needed a 6.5 inch block but it printed just a little smaller. My printer can enlarge and reduce by percentages but I can't begin to tell you how many times I increased by 1% and never did get the correct size. I ended up drawing it out by hand!

They have such a variety of blocks. Many are PP but there are also pieced ones too. Jus take you time with PP and the results will be great!

If you want a good paper piecing computer program, Foundation Factory is great. You can resize any block.

I hadn't noticed that, but I think she still has tons of patterns that aren't paper pieced.
