    Paper piecing color my world…anyone else?

    I decided early to do paper piecing instead of the wax…I’m more comfortable . However, I have a few questions…anyone nearing the end that paper pieced? Please respond so I don’t feel alone…

    Sandi C, Why don't you just post your questions? A lot of us do paper piecing and probably can help you. HelenW

      Once you have a copy the pattern correctly, i.e. the one at square is perfect, do you find that the printed pattern has a larger than a quarter inch seam allowance?

        I trimmed as you mention here, measuring 1/4" away from the seam line. These patterns are hand drawn so may not be precise. Being sure the 1" scale is perfect is most important.

          Is anyone still working on Color My world? I had to stop in October and now want to finish. I have downloaded the patterns and instructions to start. I want to include a lighthouse. Has anyone else included one? I have questions.

            I'm still working on mine, Still have two tall buildings to finish. I decided to do traditional paper piecing for One World tower. Took a while to pick off the papers but I'm very happy with it.

            Several people have made lighthouses. You will have to look at past topics under 2021 BOM Color My World. Topics like Your Finish Here, Design Your Own Skyscrapers, etc have photos that include Lighthouses.

            Those who are done may not be looking at this Category now.

            I'm still working on mine. I am just now getting to the tall buildings so I have a long way to go. Just ran into the problem with printing month 8 that many people seemed to have. Very frustrating! I hope this doesn't happen with any of the rest of them.

              There was information on how to get the correct size for month 8 patterns. You should be certain to go back through previous topics on prior months to get all the help that was provided.

                Yes, I'm still working on this quilt top. Life got in the way & then my sew mojo crashed. Have gained a fresh perspective for 2022 "Finish" is my word for the year. I paper pieced the blocks because I enjoy the accuracy. Yet to do is one small house and then the skyscrapers. I especially enjoyed making the "village" houses.
