    I taught myself how to paper piece when I made a large quilt using 16 small(16 inch) and one large (32 inch) feathered star blocks. I used the back side of used printer paper to print my patterns on. It was hard to remove the paper until I started scoring on the sewing lines with the tip of a stitch ripper. It came out much better then. I use newsprint now, but find I still have to score some of the lines.

    I also use freezer paper with my quilting lines marked on it to iron on for my quilting pattern. I just don't seem to free motion well enough. I use the seam ripper the same way to get the paper to come loose from the stitching. Works great for me. Hope this helps someone.

      Square in a square blocks. I plan to add another 4 on the other side of the fox. One of the things I like is how small you can
      make accurate FPP units. I plan to do 4 Storm at Sea 6 inch blocks at the bottom. First picture is storm at sea block printed from
      EQ8 for 6 inch size. Second picture of the plan in EQ8 so far. Third picture is the actual project so far. HelenW

        I like the fabrics in the kit, but they are challenging for me -- instead of the expected florals, like the quilt in the book, they're mostly solids and geometrics. Also, the different weights have me concerned.

          Was feeling the same, but I’m trusting the process.

            Donna, I love your center idea. I did something similar on the borders of my Afternoon Delight quilt. I did flying geese,FPP, and put
            a little 9 patch in the center. HelenW

              Love your quilt. That is way more work than my one little 9 patch.

            I used Carol Doak's foundation paper (it's what I had on hand). Background is grunge, and the rest is various batiks I've been collecting over the years. Looking forward to the next block!
