Paper Piecing

Wednesday, I had a workshop on paper piecing (a way of putting together a quilt square). I'd never done it before and wanted to learn the technique. Well, it's not very intuitive, as you sew on a piece of paper with your fabric behind the paper - the paper is below on the left. On the right is how it looks with 4 of the 8 pieces attached.

Now, this is how it looks when I have done 2 triangles and then sewn them together (ie 1/4 of a block). It looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself.

It was hard to figure out at first, but once I got the idea, its not so hard, just a bit finicky. But, it does give me much nicer points than I usually get...
