Ive done it many thanks to Kris for one of her links for paper piecing it helped no end, and i really like it so here is my Bees and field block not perfect but then neither am i.

The bee fabric ive had for at least 10 years never knew what to use it on, this seemed an appropriate block for it.

Frances: here is my Bees and field block not perfect but then neither am i.
Francis, you're perfect to your friends! I love your block and the bee fabric is so cute, good job, my friend!
It looks great!!! Doesn't it feel good to accomplish a new challenge? Love it!!
Frances, love your block.
When, I do my PP, I lay a light strip under my aycrilic, machine extenion, then i lay my paper and fabric, i can see where everything needs to be, no prefolding anything, easy peasy
Thea- great tutorial! Thank you. Frances your block is great too, I LOVE that beehive fabric!!
I didn't get to the paper pieced block today - but it is on my list to do first thing tomorrow - so I'll take pictures of each of my steps and post them so that you can see how I do it. I don't usually have to unsew any pieces if I do it - only when I don't follow my own advice and get a head of myself do I have those problems... sorry though I truly thought I would feel up to doing it today - i did sew though - finished up the placemats that I had started the other day... now to sandwich and quilt them... that will come another day though...
Kris, I have about 35 lbs of alpaca to spin and a king size afghan to crochet.
