    Thanks! the flowered material is from the collection called Cottage Romance. Isn't it just wonderful! My SQA sent me a FQ, and when she saw how much I loved it, she sent me a whole yard!! :-D :-D
    I have been on line looking for it, wanting to order 2 more yards, but the only place I found so far only had 1/3 of a yard :roll: So, I will use what I have and try to just make a wall hanging. It is a beautiful collection for sure.
    Here is where i found it. If you find any with yardage, please let me know :-D

    You did a great job. I decided to give PP a shot, and just printed out a couple of sheets I found online.
    Mine was not NEAR as successful as yours.
    Back to the drawing board. I had so many "operator errors" that my butterfly turned into a nightmare.

    I ordered Carol Doaks DVD, and she made that light bulb go on in my dense head :lol: :lol:
    Here is her link, That block is called Beth's Block and is from her book Bright and Bold Paper Pieced Blocks.

    Thanks, Ninnie!!!! I went to the Carol Doaks site, and found enough books and CDs that I didn't even know I wanted until I saw this!!! It says her books have a sense of humor! Anyone who saw me trying to attempt that yesterday would NEED one!!!
    I can give a whole list to my kids as marvelous Mothers Day and birthday present ideas!!!
    I had lost all my hair 5 years ago, taking chemo, and since it all grew back, I was about to yank it all out again, over trying to PP!! LOL

    Great job Ninnie...I have a few things to do before I try paper piecing, though I have loads of patterns. It does look quite tricky, I think I'll get a DVD...sometimes I learn better by watching.

    Look forward to seeing it finished!
