Paper Piece Quilting

This year I wanted to learn something new and I decided that would be paper piece quilting. HA! Had I known what I was in store for I might have rethought this plan. Paper piecing is not hard per say but can be a bit confusing. You have to kinda thing backwards and my brain does not do that well. I have a very good friend in the area who is being very patient with me, teaching me as gently as she can! I really appreciate that.

Paper piecing is great way to use your scraps. It's also a great way to get all your points almost perfect.

There are a few flaws in it but nothing I can't overlook. I really struggled on this one trust me. I have a farmhouse standing by to do next.

This book by Alex Anderson was very helpful to me starting out.
