This quilt top was from a class Carol Doak taught at our local guild on 4/16/11.  This is the France block from her Mariners Compass Stars book. I did it in Easter colors set on point with a pastel paisley print.

I am now a fan of paper piecing!  What a fun day!

It's good to hear from someone who enjoyed paper piecing.  I want to learn it, but so many others groan when the topic comes up saying that picking out the small pieces of paper gets to be really tedious.

Your block is very pretty. I love the color!

This is beautiful. Very vibrant! Carole rules. She is the paper piecing queen. I absolutely love paper piecing.

MNnancy...when you learn the basic techniques, you'll love it! I use water soluble paper for my paper piecing and never have to pick out any paper. Just dunk in water and it's all gone.

TSP as Carol says - Trim, Sew, Press.  Awesome workshop!  

Loved it so much that I talked the DH into a paper piecing cruise next March.  He said Yes!!!

Thank you, everyone, for the compliments!

Your block looks great!  I took her class last year.  Carol is such a love!  I always have adored paper piecing and take every opportunity to take classes with the pros.  I never know what more I can learn.  It is apparent from your block that you took Carol's lessons to heart.  Good job!

Marsha, I share your thoughts!  Carol was so charming! And, I, too, love to take classes from the pros.  I took a Kay England class last year that was very enlightening!  It truely changed how I piece, and it appears that my accuracy has improved with the change!  Yay!

Thanks, everyone for the compliments!
