    My wife and I went to a paper piecing workshop today that our guild sponsored with nationally known quilting artist Deb Karasik ( http://www.quiltmavens.com/ ). It was great and LOTS of fun! I learned to paper piece and got 3 blocks done! :D We got to bring our own fabrics to all do the same pattern, which is one she developed named "Ringo Star". I choose to do mine in Civil War reproduction fabrics. My wife is doing hers in bright tie-dyes on a black background.

    Deb is doing a trunk show at our monthly guild meeting tomorrow night as well. Looking forward to it!

    Looks great Eddie. I still have not tried PP, I have Carol Doaks DVD. I just need to do it as Nike says.

    Eddie is there anything you can't do? You are one of the best quilters I have seen.

    Congrats on learning to paper piece. I've done it lots and find it's the only way to get sharp points over and over again. Show off your quilt when you get it sewn together.

    I agree! Everything you do turns out great! Bet you don't have any old stab wounds from errant seam rippers, either, do you?
    You are a natural.
    This is going to be gorgeous in the Civil War repros, too.
