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

Janet - Wow! That quilt is beautiful! I love the yellow! You did a great job ... and the quilting is awesome. Thank you for sharing! Another project finished. Woo hoo!

Thanks Connie.  All of Carol Doak's patterns are paper pieced.  After buying some of her books & joining her Yahoo group years ago, I suddenly understood paper piecing & now I love doing it.

Janet....I didn't realize this was paper pieced...WOW.....that's amazing!

I finally finished stitching down the binding on a Carol Doak mystery quilt that my friend Becky quilted for me.  I can't remember when Carol hosted this mystery, but it has probably been at least 5 yrs ago.  After I finished piecing it, I didn't care for the fabric choices as I thought they mooshed together too much, but after Becky quilted it, I fell in love with it.

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
