    OH my; that's wonderful. I'm taking a Craftsy class on-line to learn pp but am putting off my blocks until I finish the current quilt I'm working on for my dh. You're off to a fablous start!

    Great job. That's one technique I haven't practiced, so I am awe of your effort.

    Yes, I like it and great job! Just make a bunch more and you will have a quilt! I love the exactness of paper piecing, though I've not done that much of it!

    Very nice! You were very ambitious for your first pp project! Mine were much simpler than that
    I'm beginning to not sew through the paper when I pp. I use that Lapel Stick and temporary glue the fabric in place. It was so much faster in the end when you have to rip out the paper....
