    I taught myself how to paper piece...

    and now I think I'm addicted. One thing is for sure, I really got to know my seam ripper. I made all three, this past week. Thanks for looking....

    Great job! You can slice bread with those points!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Even though I am self-taught in most aspects of quilting, PP was something I simply could not wrap my head around until I took a class. Excellent job.
