I've been playing with the bib pattern and had a blast finishing it to give to my DGD this weekend. I'd love to make another one...or five... but want to make sure it's the right size. So all you PP…Continue

Instead of printing the block on paper, put interfacing ( the stiffness and weight of paper ) that has been cut to the size of a sheet of paper into your printer and print and sew on it. There is no…Continue

I seem to be having a problem downloading this to my computer. I have followed your instruction to do it but only the layout appears and no block or pattern.

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Nancy, the only pp quilts I have done are wall hangs and table runners. I have think I need to break out and do a twin/lap size quilt. I picked the quilt pattern out but I’m not confidante to change the pattern yet. Maybe one day.

Nice to see some chat here again! I love paper piecing, just don't like a whole quilt with it, lol. DH designed a pp baby quilt for us once, told him never again, that was my quilt from He--! Turned out great, but took me from Father's Day to Labor Day, more working on it, than not, to get it done. So that was a lesson for both of us. But love doing pp blocks, then added them to the rest of a quilt, that isn't, lol...

Foundation/paper piecing is extremely accurate, as long as you sew on the lines. This is a great place to ask questions. I guarantee someone will know the answer.

Thanks for answer me. I just started foundation piecing, looking for a group where I could ask questions and get advise.

I took a class and realy enjoyed it. I liked that the points came out prefect, hope its not because it was my first time.

Yes, Rebecca, but not real active. Please comment or ask questions.

HI Teresa....thanks for your note...I meant when you find a pattern...anyones what size should you enlarge it? I find the small ones look very pieced lol you know what I mean.?

Comment by Teresa Taramasso on October 19, 2012 at 8:21pm

Mdm, "what is a good size to make my patterns...if they are only 4 inch square?" What do you mean? A four inch finished size block for me is pretty big. My computer software can make my blocks larger or smaller when needed.
