    Looks terrific! :thumbup:
    And really, the more you do, the faster, easier & less tedious it gets. Honest! :wink:

    LOL on the ripping, 1 time one of the fabrics was folded caddy wompas, 1 of the rippings i had to wide of a seam and it didnt meet the seam allowance (about a hundred times. I have ripped out more on PP'ing than I have anything else.

    I have learned what to do and what NOT to do now.

    Same with me...it goes kinda slow and is somewhat tedious, but I LOVE the end result. Those straight lines and sharp corner points just SING to me!!! :mrgreen: :-D :lol:

    For a first time, you did a nice job. I also find PP tedious, but love the results. I did a wall hanging on Cinco de Mayo - 9 blocks. but it was well worth it!

    Your block looks wonderful. I'm wondering if I have the patience to do PP.

    Great job! I've thought about trying to learn and have downloaded the instructions and paper pattern off the internet but I haven't tried it yet. Yours turned out beautiful. Maybe I should try it next.

    I do love how the points come out and the straight seams. I am pretty proud of myself. Will I do more? Probably, will I do them for a swap that has 12 or more blocks due...........Not sure.

    I am sure once I got it down as to where each piece goes it would go alot quicker. We have a cook out today tilling the garden and hoping to work on the chicken coop this weekend so sewing will be very limited if any at all for this weekend. But I will be back at it come monday.

    You've done excellent for the first time!!! WTG!! Your GC are so dear in that picture! PPing is well worth the time to achieve quality results! You'll get faster the more you do of it. It will get easier too! Looking forward to seeing the whole swap block done. :D :D

    That is a beautiful block! Is paper piecing like foundation piecing with muslin, only you remove the paper instead of leaving the muslin in the block?

    Good question, I am not sure. Maybe someone else can answer that.
