    The top is pieced. It measures 16x16. I'm in the process of removing the paper from the backs of the blocks. Fun.:roll:

    Oh I like, I like. Do you always leave all the paper on until you are finished, and if so is there a reason. I just started paper piecing, I only made one block so far, but it was made with 4 blocks to make the one bigger block. I took the paper off as I went. Just interested in learning anything new I can.

    I have heard using a tracing wheel (used for marking darts) works by running it over the stitching to remove the paper... it loosens the paper from the stitching.... so I am told :) Give a try..


    Also have you tired using the freezer paper method... where you don't sew thru the paper but fold the paper on the lines and sew next to the fold, then press afterwards... It is easy too and then you don't have the paper to pick out. :)

    I love paper piecing--I'm about 3/4 of the way through a New York Beauty. Do you have your stitches shortened tight enough? If you get them small enough, the paper just about comes apart before you even want it it.

    Thank you. I always leave the paper on until the top is finished because that is what I was taught. I believe the reason is to add stability to the blocks and for more accurate joining of the blocks. Maybe someone with more knowledge and experience can tell us more.

    Thank you. It's not a kit. I designed it myself with my EQ6. And thanks for the tip about the tracing wheel. I've not heard that before.

    I've always wanted to try a NY Beauty but am intimidated by the curves. I used a short stitch length (1.5) and the paper is coming off pretty easy, it's just very small.

    if there's a stamp shop near you, you can buy stamp tongs, which have a longer and flat tip to them. Pulls tiny bits of paper out like a charm. :)
