Back in Fall 2006 I was pretty active in the Carol Doak Online Quilt Group. I really learned to paper piece and actually fell in love with it for a time. This is the 1000 member block which turned into a trivet for a relative of Paul's.
I used this beginners block to learn and then gave it away as a trivet to another relative.
I started the row by row quilt and got two rows done and quit. I wasn't interested in finishing, but it was a good learning experience.
I'm glad I learned to paper piece and I really do enjoy it, but at this time in my life it's not at the top of my priority list.
