    Very nice. We must have the same book 'cause I used that pattern in a vest I made. I like the precision but it is a lot of work.

    As a matter of fact, I am working now on PP of an Air Force Star block(s). Actually it was the only pattern I could find of that particular block. My thought is that it seems to waste so much fabric. However, the seams sure are straight. Love the Tulips, by the way.

    For not liking PP, those are beautiful. I still have not tried PP - need to take a class.

    Thank you!
    Carol Doaks book is also a very good tutorial - thats how I learned. It really isn't difficult - I just don't like the stop and start with the little bits of material!

    I like the rotary cut and piece method which could explain why I don't like to paper piece.

    They are great. I like paper-piecing when I want to escape..it's kind of like doing a jig-saw puzzle.

    Very pretty. You really did a nice job. I love to paper piece. I don't like the tedious job of taking the paper off but enjoy the rest of the process.

    Love your paper pieced place mats and the colors you chose. I am trying to make a king size bed quilt using paper piecing and off center pineapple block pattern. I really like paper piecing and I guess it's like everything else-you love it or hate it. You did a good job on your project.

    I love your place mats, they are just beautiful! For not liking paper piecing, your sure gave it your best!

    I love paper piecing, it is the only way I can get my points to come out right. I think it is like paint-by-number, only with fabric. ;-)

    LOVE THEM and I love paper piecing. However, I dont like Carol Doak's paper at all. I use vellum, to me, there is a world of difference.

    Fast trick - decrease the size of your stitches. I set my Bernina to about 1.2 to 1.5. Small stitches and a sharp needle make the paper removal a LOT easier. Also don't drive yourself nuts with trying to remove every little bit as long as you are going to wash the piece - the bits come off in the washing machine.
