    This is my first attempt at PP. Think it came out pretty good, now the chore of taking the paper off. It is 12" square and I think i will make a small wallhanging out of it for my sewing room.

    I tried paper piecing today with my Fall block swap scraps. Let's just say taking the paper off was the easy part for me. Ripped right off. Now the block is paperless in it's new home in the trash can.

    It was awful!!!!

    It's lovely, Sidmona! How did it go for you? Did you find it easy...fun? I downloaded the ebook on paper piecing from Konstantin and am anxious to try it.

    WOW! For a first time PP you did an excellent job. It would look great as a wallhanging.
