Welcome to the group Sherri.  QWU is going through some updates & that is why there are so many glitches.  Can get frustrating that is for sure.  Be sure to check out the various discussion forums listed above as you might find some of them helpful.  I didn't like paper piecing at first, but now it is one of my favorite methods.  I just had to beat it in to submission in my brain I guess.  LOL

I can't say I "love" paper piecing. In fact the opposite is true for me.
But I found a quilt that I really wanted to make and one of the blocks is paper pieced so thought I would give it a shot. I have sewn about 6, 3 of them have come out right. This is going to be a big struggle for me, to finish this may fast end up in my UFO bin. why does my "picture" icon not show up. Been having this problem off and on now for sometime

Debra - so sorry to hear of the mildew on your fabric! NOT GOOD! So wonderful of the guild members to help you out with scraps, though. I love your butterflies! Yes, time is something we never seem to have enough of.

No particular person. I have been gifted with scraps from "fabric fairies" from my quilt guild. I moved to Louisiana from Iowa, and put my quilt things in storage. When I went to get some there was mildew. I told guild members and they gifted me with scraps. I need to use scraps to make things. I made some tote bags and gave them to church members to tote their bibles in.  Anything to keep sewing. I have more ideas than I have time, lol.

That is adorable Debra.  What a clever way to make butterflies.  Is this for a special someone?
