    So, I finally learned how to paper-piece. (thanks for all the helpful hints, Mousie!) And now I am a paper-piecing maniac...anything that's not tied down, I'm paper-piecing.
    :-D

    I plan on this (below) being a "paper-piecing sampler quilt" when I'm done and I can fit it all together. I am just looking all over the web for paper-piecing patterns, and when I see one I like, I print it out and give it a shot. The biggest block is 18" and the smallest is 3". Some were simple and some had me banging my head on the sewing machine. And yeah, all the paper is still attached. (groan)

    I am so happy I got to see your pp project as a work in progress. How big are you going to make it? Wow the bright colors remind me of the dutch influence that is up in your neck of the woods. How fun!

    Thank you! And yes, the Pennsylvania Dutch colors/idea were what I had in mind when I started. I am so glad you said that!

    As for how big it will be, well -- til I get tired of doing it, I guess!

    :-P

    Fabulous!

    That is sooooo much more interesting than having 16 of the SAME freaking blocks with the same colors.

    Love the different sizes and shapes.

    It's gorgeous. Can't wait to see it finished.

    this is a wonderful web site with literally hundreds of quilt blocks and it tells you if it is a pp pattern and if it is easy, medium or hard. After you log on, go to where it says 'where do you want to go today' and click on free quilt blocks. It gives you the templates too

    Marie, your best bet is to make your question a new post. You can just copy and paste it to a new topic. It will get lost in this one :)

    Beautiful! I pp a mariner's compass quilt and it was one of my favorite. It is by Judy Mathison and you can print out the patterns in any size, I thought you might like this. Keep up the good work!
