My first attempt at paper piecing

I have always wanted to try paper piecing but I never found a block I really Googled "free paper piecing blocks" and found a neat site with some interesting blocks.

My first attempt is not so great. The geese are suppose to be in a circle.  I cut up the pattern and pieces and sewed them together...not so smart.

Then I tried the piecing by tracing the pattern onto some newspaper.  I was not sure how to go about it but I think I did ok. At least the geese are going in a circle.

this was fun and I hope to try some more paper piecing patterns

what do you think of them? 


  1. Hey girl, you blew me away! What an awesome job you did! And what a great friend you are. Thank you for the virtual hug, I so needed it. Thank you for attending my pity party. I do love your blocks girl, very chic...hugs back at ya, Elaine

  2. Hi Elaine
    I am glad you wrote a comment. I wanted to email you...are you anywhere near those fires in Texas. That is so scary and sad. We have kept those dealing with these fires in our prayers.

  3. Great job with the paper piecing Beebee. Love the circle you have created.
    news of the fires have not reached New Zealand. Hope they are under control now.
