  • Re: Foundation paper piecing - grrrrr! What a day!

Went back to basics using my Carol Doak Mariner's Compass book as a step by step reference. Oh boy, I had taken a few short cuts when I started this block!!! What was I thinking???? Back...

  • Hi, my name is Jolae Norman

    Hi, I'm Jolae. I am a novice quilter. When I started to learn I joined an org. here in Colorado. I got into a small group, I was hoping they would help me learn, but no one was interested in it. So, I kind of gave up. Well now I'm ready to start again. Will I be disappointed here as well ? Please...

  • Judy Niemeyer paper piecing

    Has anyone had experience with Judy Niemeyer paper pieced quilt patterns? Just wondering how these differ from other paper piecing. Her patterns are just beautiful, but I'm concerned that they may be beyond my level of expertise. Thanks, Lucy

  • Re: Prism - What do you think? - Finished

    Hi Pat, It was not difficult - it was paper pieced - two mirror image templates- A & B - then sew sew sew until I had enough blocks - about 9 1/4 inch - the toughest part was getting the fabric big enough into the seam allowance so there wasn't a hole later - I had to remake about 7 blocks because...

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today #10

    Couldn't sleep for some reason, just kept tossing and turning. I was keeping George and the dogs awake so I figured I'd get up and sew a bit. Some time back I made three paper pieced blocks from the Winnie the Pooh series. I decided to make another one in the middle of the night, Rabbit. He turned...

  • Hello Intro

    Just joined the Paper Piecing Club today and had a hard time find how to post so am not sure it is going to the right place or not but here goes anyway. Been quilting for about 12/20 years or perhaps I should say piecing as I have so many tops needing quilting but they will get done one day. I hope some...

  • Sewing Shortcuts

    When sewing many small pieces together, instead of running back and forth to iron your seam, use something hard like a bone folder to crease or "iron" the edge. This saves time and is especially useful when you are making pieced blocks, unless of course you prefer the exercise!

  • Jinny Beyer project

    Read about the paper piecing group starting Jinny Beyer's Moonglow next year and there was a free pattern download. I have been a member of this group for a while, but still having a lot of difficulty navigating through. Where can I find this pattern to download? I think I will be interested in starting...
