    This is my first effort at paper piecing. It has a few imperfections, but I am pleased with it and now I'm hooked!
    Looks like I'll be scouring the net for some patterns to try.

    Watch out it's addicting. I just did that block using autism awareness fabric. Check out Carol Doak. She has a Yahoo group and a blog.

    Wow! You did a wonderful job. I've tried PP on one small wall hanging and then some heart blocks (unfinished)... Seeing how the points meet up so well makes me want to drag out some of my fabric and start on something new. Matching points is definitely not my strong point, but with PP it makes it so much easier.
