New Patterns

Thanks to all for the kind posts.  They really helped.

Still feeling sorry for myself, I walked up to the quilt store and to the pharmacy to get my meds.  I needed paper piecing paper as I discovered regular paper just doesn't work that well with lots of pieces.

Is paper piecing considered cheating?

I only decided to go this route as my flying geese blocks weren't coming out right.  Does anyone else's block bow on the bottom side when doing them?  I feel like I've gone through so much fabric as I need more.

I picked up the paper and made the mistake of looking at the patterns.  These called out my name and begged to come home:

I'll post a picture of the paper pieced block when I get it done.

There is no cheating when it comes to quilting! There are just tons of different ways to do things....everyone has a favorite and rarely do two quilters do things the same. Quilts are about the person making them enjoying the process - do what makes you happy. :) blessings, marlene
