Thanks for the reminder of that show Jennifer. I am not sure I have actually watched it, but I will now. :D

I took a class with Carol Doak to learn paper piecing. She also has a video [url]watch/watch-shows/video/show-602-paper-piece-like-a-pro[/url] which helps.

I hated paper piecing before the class, and now I enjoy the results! The block in the video is the same one she taught in the class, so I know the technique works.

Hope that helps and you don't give up!

Jetmaio, I know exactly how you feel. I did the centre star but every single piece took at least three attempts. I find the whole backwards thing just too much for my brain. I eventually got it done but now find that I am short on the background fabric at several points. :roll: And, I do not have a go cutter or a baby go cutter or any other kind of cutter to cut all those circles so I will be leaving it at that. I might put my centre star into something else or maybe I will keep it up on my design wall to remind me of my limitations. :?

Trouble with the paper piecing technique - Sue Garmen has a useful video from 2009 on how to paper piece, which might be worth your while reviewing [url]learn/classrooms/[/url]

Hope this helps

The only way to find out is to wash it, unfortunately.
This is because of the variation of the different types of inks from company to company and mainly has to do with whether it is a dye based ink or a pigment based ink. Because it has transfered, I suspect that it is probably a dye based ink - these ones when printed onto fabric without a mordant (ie bubblejet) will run when they get wet, whereas the pigment based ones are usually more secure onto the fabric.

By the way if you were to starch your fabric, the print would transfer to the starched surface rather than the fibres of the fabric, and probably be easier to remove - although I am sure that you would rather not have to remove them to start with :roll:

I am still floundering with the very first circle. This is the second time I've sewn it. The first time I found at the end that one of my star pieces didn't extend all the way to the bottom. I sure wish the video had shown how to line up the pieces from the back. I seem to have to do trial and error each and every piece. So far I hate paper piecing and am ready to throw it away. Now I do a second first piece and I think it comes out ok except one of the background pieces are backwards. I have to pull it apart and redo. Now it doesn't lay flat enough so I use steam. O.K. now here is the real question. The printer ink numbers are now on my beige background fabric. DOES IT WASH OUT?
