    This is probably something so obvious to everybody else, but whenever you all say pp or PP, I don't know what it is.

    It stands for paper piecing. It's a technique for creating blocks where you stitch on paper and trim as you go to 1/4 inch seam allowances. It makes it easier to piece odd shaped and small pieces.

    oh boy, how silly of me... thanks, Amma and Finely.

    I probably didn't think of that since I hate paper piecing. When I'm ready to try it again, I'll come here and ask advise.

    Try the February BOM. It is PP and easy. It makes a really pretty block.

    I'm over 50 and it means something totally different to me (usually requires hurried movement) lol

    Until I started coming to this board, PP always meant "previous poster" to me.

    I love paper piecing. My teacher taught me but she had to approve the pattern first. I found an easy one - candy corn. The more pieces the harder it is. The candy corn only uses 7.

    So many abravations used on this site, and I have no idea of what they mean. Ex. DH - dear, dumb,darling husband which is correct?
    I love this site and everyone seems like they are my best friends.

    Here are some examples of the Candy Corn paper piecing pattern. The first one is the one I like best.

    sewgull: DH is for any one you choose. They all work for different situations. And there is one other one I use sometimes.

    There are many acronyms for quilting. Just do a google search: acronyms quilt
