Paper Piecing!!

Success!!! Today, for the Summer Series Quilt-a-long, I spent about 2.5 hours figuring out paper piecing. This is my first EVER attempt. I have been scared to try. After this - I am in love! What a neat/fun/totally bizarre way to quilt! This, folks, is why we should never let fear stop us from trying things! So, with a feeling of pride, I present my first paper pieced block - Star!!


Yea!! I am so happy that I had some time this morning to get this done! It's pretty neat!!

Paper piecing is definitely one of those things that's really cool once you figure it out! I love your block. Gorgeous!

LOVE the fun colors!! I love paper piecing, too. I've got a Glacier Star quilt I'm working on that uses that technique. Watch out - it's addictive!

Well done. I like your color choices. I can remember my first time paper piecing, it was scary. I was always concerned I would cut off the wrong piece.

Nicely done. I inverted the colors on the first two pieces and ruined the entire block my first go. That is awesome!
