    Hi Moonpi
    I only work with streight lines. I love paper-piecing because even very small details is easy to make. It is much easier than I think you think. I will try to make a photosection of my way to do paper-piecing - I think the same way as most others.

    hi scrap quilter.
    Paper-piecing is easy. It took me 3 month to get the AHA. :idea: Since then I have been addicted :)

    Hi Jette - if you click in the top right hand corner of the post of the person you want to respond to 'quote' you can answer people directly!

    Unfortunately DH only does flying one night trips and spends most of that in meetings but he has visited the Hermitage and said it was amazing. I'll go with him one day, just haven't had the chance yet!

    I agree with your husband that the Hermitage is amazing. When I visited it in 1993, I saw a Bible that had so many jewels on it that I would not have been able to put my little finger down without touching two or more jewels. I also wound up in one of the basements which held a pre-historic exibit. Thought I was going to get locked in for the night.

    I love St. Petersburg. So much history, so many beautiful buildings and the food was wonderful. I would love to go back again. The boat cruise on the waterways is a wonderful way to travel. The other time I visited, we took the train from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

    Jette,

    That is a beautiful rendition of St. Basil's. Have you thought of doing one of The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood (I think I have the name right) in St. Petersburg? It is not as recognizable as St. Basil's, but I think it is beautiful.

    Do you plan to make the pattern for St. Basil's available?

    Thanks for the tip. You should ask DH to buy you some cds with russian folk songs. It is fantastic together with quilting. :)

    Yes it is a very beautiful church. It would be funny to make. And what a lot of gold :)

    I only made the St. Basil pattern for own use. (no numbers). If you are used to make paper-piecing, this will not be a problem.
    If you write me:

    I will send it to you.

    WOW, WOW, WOW! That is one stunning quilt! I love paper piecing. :lol: My avatar is a paper pieced St. Paul pattern that grew into a queen sized raffle quilt for my church group. I have done some others as well, but my camera and computer are having a feud now, so I can't post any pictures right now! :( I am using an old computer right now, and am lucky I can do mail! :lol:
