    I took a class given by Peggy Martin (Just named Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Professional Quilters). Her method of paper piecing was easy to follow and I'm quite proud of my first project. Most people in the class did a wall hanging but I extended mine with borders and will probably use it as a tablecloth.

    This is just gorgeous. I have not paper pieced yet, but this would definitely give in incentive. A great job done. Thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely love this! If you're going to use this as a tablecloth I'd put a clear cover over it so not to get it stained.

    I use my quilts as tablecloths quite often by using clear vinyl (that I buy at Hancocks by the yard) on top. Easy to clean and the quilt is very visible. I get lots of compliments.

    Very lovely, nice work. I really like your use of the larger sunflower print, it adds a lot of interest.
