    First Paper piecing!

    So I want to do a log roll or something for my friend who has started to knit and I'm sort of designing my own but I just need to make it wider and taller. Still trying to figure out what the do but here is my first paper piecing ever. I'm impressed. Especially since it took me forever to figure it out.

    Nice job for the first time peicing. I took a course in it myself. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy. Like the print too. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas.

    I googled some and it looks like 25 x 17 but I think that is too big....I'm going to make 4 of them and then add some borders but I don't think I want to use anymore blocks..I just don't know...or if so, I want small ones. The square is only 6.5 inches. and her knitting needles are only 10.5....decisions decisions...I'll figure something out.

    You did a great job. I love PPing too. If I don't do it for awhile I have to take out the instruction book to refresh my memory.

    This is the finished back. I'll just put the inside plain and do the lines for the separate sections but this will be the back. I really love it.
