    Just Wonderful!! My mom and dad used to ask me if quilting was tedious. I could not explain how soothing it was to me to get so involved in my hand work that the rest of the world just went away!! You know that old saying about how music calms the savage beast? Humph!! QUILTING soothes this savage beast!!

    Ditto from me as well! Your work is beautiful design and execution. Colors are awesome! Does this take long to learn? Have to admit, when I see all those pattern pieces, I cringe and my stomach starts creeping, I am totally freaked out by all those lines! This work is so beautiful, there must be a method to this so that it is not so scary? Any clues to share?

    Very nice K! PP is a blast! There was a time before DJ that I would avoid anything resembling PP. Now I love it!

    I started with amma's tute, here's a link http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-25541-1.htm

    The technique kind of 'clicks' once you grasp the concept of working from the back, I found. The key is to work methodically around the block, especially with the more complex designs. There's no secret really, you just have to concentrate and plod away. Start with a simple block, like the one amma suggests and work your way up to more complex ones. Don't be put off by the tiny pieces. This is the big advantage of PP - that you CAN use such weeny bits! That and the fact that your points are ALWAYS perfect! My ultimate goal is something like this guy's work http://www.georgesiciliano.com/ Be sure to check out the gallery - look at the bottom and it tells you the size of the work and how many pieces there are in it.

    Ripping PP is not nice because the stitches are so small. I do it with the blade of my rotary cutter (I use the small one for this). Hold the top piece of fabric up and away with the left hand, under slight tension and snick the stitches with the cutter held in the right hand. Obviously reverse if you're a lefty. :-D

    PS if you do check out the Siciliano site - be sure to read the comment under the quilt entitled Crop Circles! Bearing in mind the discussions we often have on here about non quilters sometimes not understanding the value of our work! :shock: :lol:
