Erin, maybe someone here who's good at tutorials would be willing to show you how to PP. It took me awhile to get my mind around the process.
thank you. I am going through my stash this morning and i thik that polka dots will be the theme as I love the dots and have oodles of fabric. i will post pictures of my blocks once they re done.
happy quilting to all
Kris, do you have tutorials over in the PP group that would help Erin?
Leslie, I have checked out the tutorials in the PP group. Since I cannot watch videos here at home and I cannot take my sewing machine to the library I am limited on options. I just need to pull out some scraps and start PP! I am a hands on learner anyway, but it would be easier to just be able to watch a video and "sew along",
I think I am going to pull out the freezer paper and see what kind of damage I can do today..LOL
YAY! I just made a "Bee" using freezer paper and PPing! It is a little small (like Barbara said) but I am just happy that all the fabric is facing the right way! hahah I am going to find some hearts or something easy to try and maybe make a valentines wall hanging or table topper. Who knows? I will post pics later of whatever I make!
This is my first time doing this. I am not using the colors that the blocks asked for.
When I finish where and how do I post pictures?
Bobbie joe- Hello and welcome. You use whatever fabric you want. The fabrics used are only to show how to create block. Once you finish your block and want to post pictures you bring up the message box and in the bar above where you write is a symbol that looks like a filmstrip. Click the filmstrip and attach your photos.
So I paper pieced an easy heart.....2 PP blocks in one day...wow! Now that I am understanding it I will start practicing everyday until i get good enough to make the Harry Potter quilt...LOL that would be a loooooong time so don't hold your breath!
Congrats on PPing Erin, I knew you could do it!
"Now that I am understanding it I will start practicing everyday until i get good enough to make the Harry Potter quilt." Come on Erin. I just learned how to do the paper piecing too. By the end of the year 2013, you and I will do at least a block from HP.
