    I REALLY liked your presentation! :thumbup: It is pretty impressive - - taking all that paper and some fabric and ending up with the finished product!
    Great job on the project ... wonderful presentation for our enjoyment. Thank you!

    from her post on page 1

    This paper pieced wall hanging measures 18 x 22. I got the pattern from the book Foundation Pieced Nature Quilts.
    I stitched in the ditch around all the flower petals & leaves & a little FMQ in the border.

    I just watched a Fons and Porter program.
    The Tips part is always very thought-provoking, and I thought of you when I saw the following tip:

    Do you know of those stick up lights that are touch turn on ... about seven inches across, designed to be put in a dark stairway or closet?
    Set one by your sewing machine as you paper piece ... since you need a light source of some kind to ensure that you have the pieces big enough and lined up correctly, this handy source of light is much easier to use than holding everything up to a light on the wall or the window.

    I always marvel when I see people who think ahead enough to do a "before" and after picture ... it really helps me appreciate where they have come from and where they got to
