    `This is my first attempt at paper piecing and I was totally 'discombobulated'. Not to anxious to do it again. My hats off to any of you who can master this technique.

    All four blocks so far. There are two more. They measure 14" sq.

    the blocks look nice

    when I tried it, I was really surprised at how much fabric it seemed to take

    Keep at it Jan - your doing a lovely job. I can honestly say your blocks look perfect to me considering it's your first attempt.
    Don't forget to post again once you've added the next 2 blocks.

    Believe me once you get into some sort of momentum your wonder why you ever found this technique daunting at first. I love doing PP :wink:

    Thanks Riley and bearisgray. I agree that it takes alot of fabric. I was really being careful with the house fabric because I only had a little bit. I wanted the strips so it would look more like a house. In the picture it looks kind of like a barn.

    Looks great. I've done very little pp but it allows for those tight corners and sharp points.

    You did a perfect job on paper piecing the house block. Love the other blocks, too. Can't wait to see it completed. It is going to be a fabulous quilt.

    Your PP looks great. I am so afraid to try PP. Need to take that PP 101.

    Love all your blocks.

    I know what you mean. I've done a few paper piecing quilts and it takes several blocks before I get my mind around it. I did turtles one time and the first one took me hours because of ripping out and doing over. Once I got into it I was ok but you really need to do several blocks before it registers or maybe I'm dyslectic or something. Your block looks great, love it.

    Your quilt is turning out beautiful, great job. Love your word: discombobulated, we don't hear that very often :D

    You did a real nice job.
    What impresses me about paper piecing is how detailed you can make a picture block. It is a bothersome technique for people who really like piecing, but you can't beat paper piecing for adding dimension to a block.
    Your mystery quilt is teaching you a lot of techniques, rather quickly, isn't it?
    Enjoy your color scheme also.
    THank you for sharing.

    Jeepers--it looks like mastery work to me!! I haven't attempted it either.

    I do love that top. What's next on it?
