Weekly Update: Paper Piecing Success

If you missed the comedy act that was my first try at paper piecing last week, you might not understand why this little block makes me so happy:

Paper Piecing Success!

Paper Piecing Success!


And with this new skill, I can confidently start working on the paper pieced star from Fresh Lemons Quilts that was chosen for the block of the month by Elvy Crafts for the Simply Solids bee.

Planning, pulling, learning...

One fourth of the April block... gotta mail it by Saturday.

Gotta mail it by Saturday.


Moving on to more solids!   The wall-hanging blocks are complete and waiting to be sewn together.  I’m looking forward to quilting this one.

Can you find the pattern?

    You’re doing fantastic so far! I’ve read through so many tutorials for paper piecing and finally found one that made sense for me: http://sewhooked.com/2008/10/28/paper-piecing-step-by-step/

      Thanks, Renee! I checked out that link and you are right, it is very straight-forward and has a ton of pictures. Thanks for the resource!

    Your paper piecing looks great, and your wall hanging is looking awesome! As long as I have the simple paper piecing with just a few straightforward pieces, I’m good. Just couldn’t get the hang of the scrappy paper piecing :/

    Your paper piecing looks lovely! The piece with the solid triangles is stunning!
