This block (Chase A Myth) is paper pieced in three sections. I redrew the pattern because I wanted 90 degree angles on the large triangles. The block has 41 pieces.

Okay, new attempt! (Cathie´s Campfire) 29 pieces. Pedantic as I am I think paper piecing will work fine for me. Lines, angles and corners become fine and precise.


Did my very first paper pieced block yesterday. Took an easy one and tought it would be a piece of cake, and yes, it was, but something went wrong......Can you find "the error" ? (Trooper Green´s Badge) 13 pieces.

Yes, this is fun! My third block, M-1 (Dogwood Days) was a little bit tricky and I did some changes (from the book) so that I would get the corners to fit the central block. Machine pieced, 29 pieces.

Have a nice day!

It´s done! My first Dear Jane block. I loved piecing it. My B-10 (Jud´s Trophy) has 27 pieces because I did the centerpiece in one instead of three. Now there is just 224 more to go... I´m not sure I´m going to use these  blocks for my "baby jane". I haven´t yet decided what color I want. If I can´t decide, I will go for the original colors. Time will tell.
