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

I agree, it is nice to see this group active again. I have seen these two other paper pieced free block of the month patterns being offered:

A beautiful star sampler,


and this crazy Block of the Week:


I do remember the fairy godmother's, Connie! I have mine all done, but not hung up, yet, it is in a stack of finished wall quilts, with no where to hang up.

I got some Carol Doak paper for Christmas so I can try and get back into my only paper piecing UFO, which is the Harry Potter bookcase quilt. I also have a 9 block pattern which is a paper pieced animal quilt that is simper in design than the Quilt Art designs this year. I haven't paper pieced in quite a while and I hope to get back to it soon. 

Good luck on the new printer, Connie!

That is very frustrating Connie.  For some reason mine won't let me scan anything although I did that just a few months ago & it worked fine then.

My printer quit New Year's Day.....so no printing anything until I get a new one hooked up.....ugh! I just hate messing with this type of chore when I could be using my time doing something more constructive and fun!

It is so nice to see some chatter on this group.  I almost disbanded it a while back because it had been so long since there had been any activity so I'm happy now I didn't do that. 

Connie, I have that book & it is one of my favorite pp'g books.  I like the fact that you can print the blocks off instead of having to trace them.

I have a quilt top made from one of Carol Doak's mysteries that I'm taking to a friend tomorrow so she can quilt it for me.  I will upload a pic when I get it back in a couple of weeks.

Welcome Sherri! It's good to see some activity here. It's been a while. I still need to finish  paper piecing the Fairy Quilt Godmother (remember her Amanda?), blocks for the tulip swap and the spool swap from another group. I also just purchased Carol Doak's 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars. Do you think I need to try paper piecing again????? LOL

Amanda, I did...er, bought the pattern for....the one where she did a girl with brown hair blowing in the wind, but never quite got to make it. Another one I have all the fabric collected for. Imagine all the quilts I could make if I used all that project fabric in an actual quilt! :)

Thanks for sharing Amanda. That is lovely but looks like lots of small pieces.
Comment by Janet/MO on January 5, 2017 at 8:52pm

That is really cute Amanda.  Thanks for sharing.

Welcome to the group, Sherri.
Every year I check out this blogs new paper piecing BOM, and year after year I want to start it, but I have so many UFO's I am reluctant to.
I thought I would share the link, here because you have to collect the patterns each month. This year is wild animal babies, it is sooooo cute!!!

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
