Welcome Rachel.  Bummer about the class with the teacher who gave wrong instructions!  How frustrating that must have been.  One thing I like about Carol Doak is she gives cutting instructions ahead of time so you don't run short; however, I do quite often add another 1/4" of an inch just to be a bit safer.  Especially when you start doing kind of weird angles.

Hi Janet,  I just joined this group because one of my goals in the near future is to learn paper piecing.  I have done this a little bit but have not really done this on my own yet.  I did take a class to learn but the instructor was giving me wrong directions and needless to stay the class was a waste of time.  I do have Carol Doak's book about paper piecing and will start there.

I too just love the fact that there is always someone who is willing to help out on all of the groups I belong to on QWU.  I just recently purchased the Sewline marking pen with the white ink and really like it so I will definitely be buying more of those products.
