    My first independent paper piecing!

    Without my bossy teacher and friend around!

    I really like it - it comes out so neat and precise, which I can never get when I piece.

    Very nice! PP always ends up looking so good. I really have to give it another go. So far, it makes me crazy most of the time.

    Hi,
    I thought it would make me crazy because I am ADD big time, but I like that I work on one piece for 1/2 hour or so, and then it is done. I can see doing one of these a day until I have 30 or so. It is too labor intensive for me to just do one after another.
    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!

    Good job!!!

    I do better when nosey eyeballs aren't peeking at me.
    Which reminds me, this is who spies on me while I sew.

    That looks like my " mouthy Maddie " who loves to nap to the sound of a sewing machine humming.

    LOVE that PP

    It took me a bit to get the hang of paper piecing and be have it not be so labor intensive. Your piece is off to a great start. Keep going it gets easier and soon it will be second nature.

    Most NY Beauties I have seen have different colors for each piece. Is there a traditional color path to use?
    Thank you

    That looks like a superb piece of paper piecing. Love the colours and fabrics you have chosen. Keep it up and it will be done in no time at all! Thank you for sharing and best wishes.

    Beautiful. I love the way PP is so precise, but I hate doing it! I guess I should try again.
