Default Paper pieced Blocks

My very first attempt at paper piecing. Took me almost a whole day of stitching and ripping but I got them done. These are my versions of the Craftsy Block of the month for October.
May try this again but not anytime soon.

You certainly did not start out with beginner blocks, but obviously got the hang of it.

Stitching and ripping - just part of the PP learning curve.
It was for me.
Along with some very colorful language.

The Circle of Geese block looks fabulous!

VERY nice!
Especially like the one with the turquoise center.
Took a paper piecing class a few months ago. Really like the process. Picking the paper off is a bit tiedous, but love the end result.

Hope you'll do more!

You have started out with some very complicated blocks...I consider myself the Queen of paper piecing, and I have not tackled the flying geese. Please hang in there, try something easier!!

For your first attempt, they are awesome. I'm a paperpiecing addict (believe it or not I paperpieced a 9 patch the other day). I hated it with my first couple of attempts--the blocks are in the closet in The Box That Shall Never Be Opened. Now, it's the only way I piece. Keep going--you'll be amazed how each step becomes second nature and really flows as smoothly as regular piecing. Once I get the first 2 pieces on right (which to me is the most difficult) the rest is just sewing pieces on. Great job!!
