    I DREADED trying to do this....even after reading two tutorials and checking Carol Doak's book out of the library; I decided what the heck and jumped in with both feet. I have to say that I LUV, LUV, LUV PP and have now found a new 'passion' and a way to get perfect 1/4 in seams. Thank you all for submitting your pictures and comments. Kudos to everyone :thumbup:

    Great block! I agree that PP is much easier than I anticipated. I'd love to do more of it.

    Looks great! Isn't it funny how we are so afraid to try new things. Now you have a whole new category of patterns to choose from!

    I am a dreader too and also inspired by your beautiful work. I guess my DH just might get his mariner cross quilt.

    Perfecto! Great Block ! I am happy to hear that you went outside your comfort zone to try a new technique. You now have a new skill in your quilting repertoire. BTW have you been silverlinings.com? He he--it will feed your new addiction.

    You did a wonderful job. Isn't it just amazing? I love paper piecing. It is my favorite technique becasue it looks so complicated and challenging, but it isn't really. It just takes time and concentration. I find people are always amazed by the finised products.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement. It is very gratifying to learn that I have inspired someone else to try this technique. I am new to quilting and feel that I have indeed accomplished a new forum to express my creativity and love of color and fabrics. Kudos again.

    Rita, that link leads to an audio production site. Could you please share the "addiction" site, LOL.
