    This is my first paper pieced top, and it was so much fun, It is done on a block from Carol Doaks book, "40 Bright and Bold". The borders could be better, and I will probably take them back off and make sure they are squared up some more. It just might need some ironing LOL. Anyway, please tell me what you think. I had so much fun, an ready to do another one. The center would have been a row larger, but ran out of the background dark blue, only had 2 yards of it. So this has been a learning experience for me. I will know to buy more the next one . There is a lot of waste, but it is worth it to get those perfect points :-D

    Ninnie it looks great!! I have attempted to learn how to paper piece but I think I am going to have to take a lesson or something! It is not quite clicking the way it should! You did a great job catching on!!! I wished I lived closer to some of you talented ladies (and gents) and maybe you could help me figure it all out!

    Absolutely gorgeous. I am normally not a big floral person, but in this case it really does work.

    Just curious, what are you planning on doing for the binding?

    Thanks
    I will bind it in the dark green that is in the centers, and is the color of the leaves, I think :D

    Love your quilt!!
    I am just getting into the paper piecing, and having a ball with it, too.
    I found if you take one printed panel, and just cut your numbered pieces and allow for seams, but make sure you cut them all from the back side of your fabric, when you go to stitch them to the paper, you don't have much waste of fabric. :thumbup:

    thanks littlehud, and the floral material is special to me. My SQA sent me a fq of it a few months ago, and when she saw how much I loved it, she sent me a whole yard :-D Isn't she the best SQA :D And then I knew I had to make something where it could really stand out, so I went on line and found it,and bought 3 more yards. So , I really have her to thank for this top, it just wouldn't have been the same with out the roses.
