    My first Paper Piecing Project

    This is one block of many for my first paper piecing quilt I'm working on. The pattern is called Eyes of March from quilterscache.com. After a few test blocks, I feel very comfortable working with paper piecing! As soon as I stop playing with the "new board" I'll get back to finishing up the quilt!

    Thanks everyone! I'm finding it to be a little time consuming because it takes me an hour or so for one block. Maybe I'm just being too careful not to mess up

    It's very pretty. Is paper piecing hard? I'm a little intimidated by paper piecing since I've never actually seen it done; I've only seen the results.

    It's not that hard! Just did a lot of practicing before I got comfortable enough to make these blocks. Try it and you'll be amazed how well it goes

    It's very pretty. I love PP and it is fun to see how the points all come together. Huggies, Fay

    Very pretty job - nice points and great color. I know what you mean about 'playing' with the board! We'll get used to it though, even though I personally liked it the way it was.

    Beautiful block!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
