I thought it would be a good idea to start listing the various types of paper that people use when they are paper piecing. Personally I prefer newsprint over anything else. I bought a case from…Continue

1. When you are getting ready to trim your seam allowances, put a recipe card on the line & then fold back the foundation. This will give you a nice crisp line to lay your ruler on to.2. Use…Continue
Hi Ann ... and welcome to this wonderful group!
I would like to welcome Ann Watzka to our group. Ann, please introduce yourself when you get a chance.
I love listening to audiobooks when I'm sewing, but haven't done that for a while. My local library doesn't offer much in the way of a selection and I'm no longer able to access the audiobooks from the library in Columbia MO. Even just 1 block of that quilt would make a nice wallhanging or the center of a round robin. I'm looking forward to seeing the entire quilt.
Right now I'm not doing much paper piecing although I hope to start one of my Judy Neimeyer quilts soon. I don't normally make New Year's Resolutions, but this year I have decided to resolve to make at least one of her quilts. I have the fabric and pattern for one of them so I just need to do it!
Thank you, everyone, for the compliments on my Chinese Fans block! I knew when I first saw this quilt that I'd have to make it. I was planning on using some of my CW stash, but when I saw the fabric kit was on sale for $100, I snatched it up.
Each block finishes at 24" and is made up of 16 smaller units. The fan part of each unit is paper pieced. So there's a lot of mindless sewing. I found that listening to an audiobook while sewing the pp and curved piecing makes it go a lot quicker.
So, what is everyone working on?
Janet S - that is a BEAUTIFUL Chinese Fan! Wow! Impressive!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope it's a wonderful, safe day for all of you.
Wow, I thought that was the entire quilt. How big are the blocks?
Janet - I second Janet's compliment - the colors are beautiful and great workmanship. I made a NYB for my anniversary quilt before PPing and I did it by hand to match the points. I'll not do that again! All PPing for me!
Thank you! This is just one block for the quilt. Now I have three of them finished. I need nine total.
I am considering machine quilting it. Hand quilting would just take too long.
Your Chinese Fans quilt is gorgeous! Are you going to hand quilt it?
