Love this Lone Starburst quilt block from Six White Horses.
This Ringo Pie group showcases all kinds of funky and fun paper pieced quilt blocks. And just look at the paper pieced Matroyshka Doll that Heather from House of Alamode whipped up. Her first time paper piecing. Some people just get that technique right away. I've hummed (to toss violently) my share of paper piecing attempts in the trash can, so clearly, I'm not one of those people. But I do love paper piecing. It's challenging for me.
If you've never tried paper piecing, but would like to, Heather recommended this video from Connecting Threads. It's pretty comprehensive. There are also tons of paper piecing how-to's on the internet.
"I like to think that I make good soup and, when I do make it, I tend to make a lot! I like to have enough to freeze and to share and some to eat right away. It was a blow to the ego when they preferred the canned or packaged stuff. Mine was chock full of "goodns" - a meal in itself. Somehow, with the passage of time, they have learned to appreciate home made soups and often make it themselves. Katie makes enough to freeze, enough to eat and enough to give to me!" --Lynn Johnson
