Check out what quilters are saying about Little Gems at ShopMartingale:

“I just finished one of the projects featured in Connie’s book, called ‘Serenity,’ and I love it! As Connie suggests, I picked fabrics at random as I was putting the blocks together…I am already picking my next project!”

“These are great looking miniature quilts. Great for embellishments! Good patterns to use up scraps. A definite must-have book for your quilting library.”

“What a neat book! I love paper piecing and Connie’s patterns are very precise and easy to understand. I have fabric waiting for the ‘Playing with Plaids’ quilt.”

“If you, like me, keep all your scraps and leftover fabric to use in a project later, then let me tell you that this book is for us.”

“Easy to read and understand; makes creating these miniatures such a joy. The step-by-step instructions make it so simple. Even beginners will be able to quilt one of Connie Kauffman’s lovely designs.”

    —Nancy on April 9, 2015

    Anita on April 9, 2015

    —Maureen Haynes on April 9, 2015
  • I am afraid I am on the "practiced very little" category! I would love to try though.

    —Aldean on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper piecing alot by completing several queen sized quilts (Crown of Thorns, New York Beauty) that used paper piecing to make the arcs. However, I am still short of perfection, and would love the opportunity to try these Little Gems!

    —Lynn Miller on April 9, 2015
  • LOVE paper-piecing and wish I knew more about it. I have used that technique several times and it makes me happy.

    —Lesley Stanford on April 9, 2015

    —Debbie Fowler on April 9, 2015
  • I have done quite a bit of paper piecing. So "practiced a lot" would be my status. As I get old -er my regular piecing skills have gone the way of my arthritis and eyesight so paper piecing still allows me to make a perfect block…….And I love it!! Thanks for the opportunity to win those gorgeous batiks.

    —Joan Zackowski on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and I’ve practiced a lot! The precision you can achieve in a miniature quilt block makes learning this method so worth it! And it’s great to use up even your tiny little scraps.

    —Bette on April 9, 2015
  • Connie’s book is great and a perfect way to try out paper-piecing. I’m kind of in the middle….I have done some but I’m not a perfectionist at it.

    —Lynnette Lamance on April 9, 2015
  • After making a couple of Judy Niemeyer quilts, I would have to say my paper piecing is a hard earned perfection. I love the how Carol Doak can make a complicated looking pattern easy to achieve. I actually like paper piecing accuracy well enough that I will redesign blocks in EQ7 to achieve it.

    —Karon on April 9, 2015
  • Paper piecing is my favorite type of quilting. It was the first thing i learned, and have since taught it to many friends. This looks like an awesome book.

    —marilyn on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a lot – just don’t do a lot of that right now. Paper piecing definitely has its place in the quilting world. The best way to get those tiny, perfect points!

    —Sheila R on April 9, 2015
  • My paper-piecing is practiced a little. I keep buying new patterns to try, but buying is all that ever seams to get done. Sigh, maybe next year.

    —Suzanne on April 9, 2015
  • I love the look of paper piecing but have practiced it only a little. Seems so easy but often get pieces too short on one end but want to try it more!

    —Janine on April 9, 2015
  • I have dabbled in paper piecing and taken several classes…working on different projectr now to try to become more practiced, but far from perfect.

    —Judy Impellizzeri on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried to paper piece a couple of times. Even took 2 classes. Don’t have it down yet. I guess I’m a little intimidated by the process. I sure would like to get better at it.

    —Sharon Theriault on April 9, 2015
  • I have done quite a bit of paper piecing, but I wouldn’t call my work perfect yet!

    —Karen A on April 9, 2015

    —Arlene Caterino on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried paperpiecing a little. I’d like to try it more.

    —Susan on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done quite a bit of paper piecing, but none in quite a while, so I might fall back into the ‘practiced a little’ category if the use it or lose it theory holds true. Thanks for the chance to win this marvelous prize package.

    —Lynn D in NC on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little but would like to try to get a better handle on the technique. I am always getting into trouble with using pieces to small.I would love to win the give away. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Practiced a little

    —Diane Poirier on April 9, 2015
  • I enjoy paper piecing – except removing the papers! It offers such a wide variety of designs. I am no expert, but I started many years ago in my teens in England with English hexagon paper piecing by hand. That ambitious project sits waiting to be finished!!

    —Vanessa Cato on April 9, 2015
  • I paper pieced my first project in 1979. It was a quilt retreat class called "Stitch and Flip". By the time the name "Paper Piecing" became popular, I was already a big fan of the technique. I joined Carol Doak’s online group and became an even bigger fan. I have the Kindle version of Little Gems. I guess you could say I’m well-practiced.

    —Susan on April 9, 2015
  • Too shy to try.

    —Lynda on April 9, 2015

    You can use tiny pieces that would be impossible if doing normal piecing

    —Bridget Fletcher on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try, even though I love the complicated look of some small projects.

    —Lois Christofferson on April 9, 2015
  • I have worked with paper piecing enough to know that I like to use it to give a sharp look to my piecing. So I would say I practiced a lot.

    —Laura on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing. Guess after making a quilt from Judy Neimeyer and Jinny Byer I could say I have practiced a lot. There is still so much to learn and I hope I can win this wonderful package as it would be a great challenge to make these small quilts.

    —Pat Patten on April 9, 2015

    —Rose W on April 9, 2015
  • Have not yet had a chance to try one of these precious quilts, but hope to do so in the future. So many ways to use materials is exciting.

    Venetta Robinson on April 9, 2015
  • I attended a class and made a bag to carry rulers and supplies with the blocks I made from sewing related fabrics. Then I did a baby quilt for my grandson with PP animal blocks, plus a few more small projects, including a wallet. I love PP!

    —SH on April 9, 2015

    —Wendi M. on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing because it makes it so easy to get accurate points and seams. Even better, DH doesn’t mind removing the paper for me 🙂

    —Marilyn in Alberta on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve only practiced paper-piecing a little. I’ve had good results but I feel so much pressure to be perfect when following a pattern especially if it has little tiny pieces. I still like the final outcome though. I made a block for a Harry Potter QAL that I’m really proud of because when you’re putting it together you never think it is going to come out right until you turn it over and do your final press.

    Annette J. on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done some paper piecing and love the results. I’m seeing more projects with paper piecing that I’m anxious to try..especially these little quilts!

  • I would say that I have practiced paper piecing a lot. I made a twisted log cabin wall hanging, the one that was seen at the beginning of Alex Anderson’s old TV show. I would like to use this new book to make some small quilts for display each month. They all look charming!

    —Deanna Ellett on April 9, 2015

    —Kathy Stewart on April 9, 2015
  • Paper-piecing….I love it. I have practiced a lot, but not to perfection. My first experience with paper-piecing was a small class with Roxanne Carter and I was hooked. I have made a several small projects and blocks of elephants from "A Quilter’s Ark" for a twin quilt for one of my grandsons.

    —Cindy on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little paper piecing.
    Carol Doak’s class at the Houston International Quilt Festival got me started.
    I LOVE sewing on a line and not worrying about 1/4″ seams!

    —Joy Bradley on April 9, 2015
  • I really enjoy paper piecing. I find it very relaxing, that is unless I have a senior moment and sew the next step on backwards! I have the frame for the small hangings but just have never found something I wanted to make for it and now I have found it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    —sharon schnebly on April 9, 2015
  • I have made small pieces before in class, but tend not to do them when quilting alone

  • Paper piecing isn’t my favorite technique, but sometimes it’s the only option. I’m currently working on a quilt that I needs 210 square in square units. I want them to be perfect, so paper piecing it is!!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on April 9, 2015
  • Adorable! My paper piecing prowess is "practiced a little". But these projects could easily change that!

    Sue G. on April 9, 2015
  • Too shy to try! I would like to but haven’t tried paper piecing yet!

    —Jill Neely on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve used self designed paper piecing to solve some construction challenges in my art quilts, just didn’t know that it was a "formal" technique. It sure does the trick to achieve a crisp, clean result.

  • Very little experience but it is the one aim I have this year. Conquer paper piecing. I think they make the most beautiful quilts I have seen and I definitely want to step-up my quilting to another level.

    —Dana Crossland on April 9, 2015
  • Several years ago all I did was paper piecing, now I do more strp piecing and my pp skills have gotten rusty. The small intricate blocks demand to be paper pieced.

    —Beth DuBord on April 9, 2015
  • Currently working on Bonnie Hunter’s Wild and Goosey, so I’m quite good at it if I say so myself! Love it until it’s time to rip the paper out. What a mess.

    —Vicky on April 9, 2015

    —Sandy K on April 9, 2015

    —Phyllis Beneditz on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done one quilt with paper piecing and one block that will probably become a mini quilt.

    —Vicki H on April 9, 2015
  • I haven’t had time to do any paper piecing …. but like riding a bike, hop on and it will all come back. The points created using paper piecing are very gratifying.

    Lori Bosecke on April 9, 2015

  • Love the "little" ones! Fantastic fabric and cuts.

    Joyce Whitehorn on April 9, 2015

    —Carol D. on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing

    —Mary Herbel on April 9, 2015
  • I’m to shy to try. It makes for some very beautiful quilts, so probably going to give it a go someday.

    —Vicky on April 9, 2015
  • I have been paper piecing since 1989 – started because regular piecing wasn’t accurate enough for me (probably the way I was doing it!). Taught myself, as there were no ‘online’ helps!! I love the tools like the Add-A-Quater that have helped streamline and speed up the process. I only Paper Piece now, even turning traditional blocks into PP ones. PP works perfectly with my penchant for fat quarters – another wonderful idea! Simple to intricate, large to small…. I love it all.

    —Linda Voltz on April 9, 2015
  • I enjoy paper-piecing but have to get my head working the other way round each time I start the first pieces – "think backwards" and then it is easy to proceed – and, of course, I really like the precision.

    —Jean Mosley on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a little bit of paper piecing. I’ve even made my own pattern. But nothing as precise or small as these patterns. Would love to try. Thanks for the chance to win! 😉

    —Jennifer Alexander on April 9, 2015
  • Paper piecing is very interesting! I’ve only made one quilt using this method so I guess I’m a novice. I have a couple of projects I’m going to try so I can improve. Practice practice practice!

    —Virginia Over on April 9, 2015
  • I have been PPing for quite a while and am quite proficient. I really like how accurate it is. Nothing can give sharper points or better curves. Also love making mini quilts so this book looks like a good resource to add to anyone’s library.

    —Cindy on April 9, 2015
  • How’s your paper-piecing prowess: practiced a little, practiced a lot, practiced to perfection, or shy to try?

    Answer: shy to try

    —Judy Maurer on April 9, 2015
  • I have made lots and lots of paper piecing quilt tops! It’s the only way to go when you need precision! I am crazy about miniature quilts now. I have always wondered what I would do once I had too many quilts to store – does that stage ever come? The world can always use one more quilt and I know that charity can! But this is an outlet I will use when I travel the country in my motorhome one day. Thanks! Hugs, Deb

    —Deb on April 9, 2015
  • Have never tried. But love the minis! Have seen at quilt shows and I do plan on trying one!

    —Rhonda on April 9, 2015

    —Sandy on April 9, 2015
  • My first paper pieced quilt was a small pineapple pattern by Lynn Graves. In 2013 I went larger for our Guilds opportunity quilt with Jenny Beyer’s paper pieced Flower Garden quilt. It was a success and lots of fun. The Little Gem patterns have got me thinking it’s time to do some more.

    —Ruth Ann Hunter on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried paper piecing several times. The most recent time was last year, when I was making a block for a Block of the Month online class. I think it turned out okay in spite of my attempts to sabotage it. I continued to think I had the right size scraps, but then when I would sew, the shape was backwards, and a corner would need for me to piece a matching scrap to it. Paper piecing seems to be such a wonderful system, except for moi!

    —Catherine Wingfield-Yeatts on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little. I love the small little quilts. It is a great way to use your scraps and much more economical than using wool.

    —Nina Scrabeck on April 9, 2015
  • If I want perfect points I do paper piecing with freezer paper. I love the technique and I’ve practiced a lot. I am close to perfection but I enjoy it so much that I don’t call it practice. Anybody can achieve great results especially with Mariner’s Compass and New York Beauty.

    —Cherine on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing and really enjoy it. I still have trouble with the block being square after I have removed the paper. I need more practice! The book would be perfect as I have a big stash.

    —freda hocking on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve been challenging myself with some paper piecing this past year and am really enjoying it. I don’t even mind picking off the papers now that I’ve learned to use smaller stitches.

    Sara Fridley on April 9, 2015

    —Maria Fortunato on April 9, 2015
  • I’m a beginner – I’ve taken a paper piecing class at my local quilt shop and loved the precise look of my first project. Since the class I have made one other paper pieced quilt – it amazes me how perfect the blocks turn out. I’ll be starting another quilt to give a friend very soon.

    Annette on April 9, 2015
  • I LOVE paper piecing and have done quite a bit of it. I made a mini that is 17 x 17 and has 1473 pieces – all foundation pieced. Thought I would loose my mind but I got it finished. After that, doing a large pineapple quilt was a breeze.

    —connie b on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve tried paper piecing in the past, but never finished a project. Last month I completed my first Judy Niemeyer top and was thrilled with the results. Gotta do more!

    —Gonny Sommarstrom on April 9, 2015
  • I do like to paper piece but don’t have as much time to do it as I do with piecing. I watch my 3 1/2 yr. old grandson and I can do regular piecing with him (and he helps sometimes). But, paper piecing if it has a lot of different color, small pieces etc. take a bit more concentration. These look like great projects that won’t overwhelm me.

    Elaine West on April 9, 2015
  • I enjoy paper piecing. This book looks like one I need to purchase. Paper pieced projects always turn out perfectly!

    —Linn Jencopale on April 9, 2015

    —J on April 9, 2015
  • The quilts in this book are truly "little gems". I have paper pieced a few times and have enjoyed what I made while doing it. My problem is I try to be too economical and use really small pieces and then when I flip them over and they don’t cover the spot I am trying to cover. If I had this book, I would have to stop my other piecing and make a few of these in between my other projects!

    Diane Hinton on April 9, 2015

    —Joanne on April 9, 2015

    —Colleen McKean on April 9, 2015
  • I have never tried it. I am hoping to get the courage to try it soon.

    —Marge on April 9, 2015
  • My introduction to PP was over the phone from another state as my Mother was trying to explain, well that didn’t work. I then had to see what it was about. I LOVED it. Everything is so precise. I was able to use lame fabric for a flame to a candle. It is really fun and I love it!

    —Kimberly on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve made a few quilts with paper piecing & I love the perfect results.

    —WendyinCA on April 9, 2015
  • I have done no paper piecing, have thought it was too complicated. But at age 75 I think it is time to learn and start using all those scraps I have collected.

    —Ann Marrison on April 9, 2015
  • Paper piecing is awesome. I have done a little and love it. Will do much more.

    —Ulrica Healy on April 9, 2015
  • I would have to say that I have practiced a lot and am a bit shy of practiced to perfection! I would love to win this bundle and give these patterns a whirl! I am in LOVE with minis!

    —Regina on April 9, 2015
  • I have not done any paper piecing but would sure like to give it a try. I love the little mini quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win these beautiful prizes.

    —Karen on April 9, 2015

    —Connie on April 9, 2015
  • I am not very good but I am willing to give it another go.

    —Debbie B on April 9, 2015

    —Marlene on April 9, 2015

    —LINDA on April 9, 2015
  • I am in the too shy to try group. I love the look of a paper pieced quilt so need to step out of my comfort zone.

    —Barbara D on April 9, 2015
  • I’m almost too shy to try, but I’m going to do it. I like to try new things.

    —Elaine Higgason on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try. With little knowledge a little daunted to try.

    —Linda Mill on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a lot! I love, love, love paper piecing. I’ve even drawn a couple of my own blocks and made mini quilts using paper piecing.

    Joy C. on April 9, 2015
  • A friend showed me how to do paper piecing this summer but I haven’t followed through with a project yet. The date of the giveaway coinsides with the day I am to have knee surgery and having the book, fabric and paper would be PERFECT for my recovery period.

    —Susan on April 9, 2015
  • Used to be too shy to try, but I’ve been doing a Tolkien quilt now for a year (off and on) using patterns from a couple online websites. The blocks look amazing and I love to paper piece now!!

    —Susan Burney on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper-piecing and found it to be a fun process.

    —Katharine on April 9, 2015
  • I am practiced a lot. I love paper piecing, especially when the pattern tells what size to cut all the fabric pieces. That always assures coverage of the area. Otherwise I make a trial block, measuring each piece I use. So much fun! my first attempt was blocks involving origami cranes. Nothing like learning on something complicated but they turned out gorgeous.

    —Joanne Moore on April 9, 2015
  • Love paper piecing. practiced to perfection!

    —Joan Nolan on April 9, 2015
  • I have barely done any paper piecing, but making these tiny beauties could certainly give me lots of practice. They are so cute that I’d like to sew each one!

    —Sue Johnson on April 9, 2015
  • I would have to said I practiced a little. I have a lot of patterns that are paper piecing, but haven’t been to confided to do them. Thanks for a chance to win some great prizes!

    —Lorie Bugaiski on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper-piecing I have done some, but would love to win the Big Giveaway so I could practice and make some of the great Little Gems in the book!
    Thanks,

  • Practiced a little, but planning on doing a lot more

    —Phyllis on April 9, 2015
  • I love seeing paper piecing results by others and am anxious to learn. I hope my local shop will have a class soon. I tried a few on my own which really shows I need guidance, but even these tries I loved.

    —Diane Hearne on April 9, 2015
  • Have practiced just a little. Is fun tho…and this book looks Awesome! Fabrics are Beautiful too! Thanks for chance to win! 🙂

    —Lori orton on April 9, 2015
  • I haven’t done paper piecing. These small quilts look like a great source for beginning projects.

    Kathy on April 9, 2015
  • I have made several small quilts. I would say "practiced a lot" is my level of expertise

    —Sue on April 9, 2015
  • I am shy to try paper piecing, I am not very good at hand sewing so I did not try it.

    —Eveline Doiron on April 9, 2015
  • I took a paper-piecing class a couple of weeks ago, and I have done a few practices. I am definitely hooked on the technique! Oh, how I would love to win this wonderful giveaway…thanks for the chance!

    —Margaret Lawrence on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try! I LOVE all the samples you showed and I have been wanting to try paper piecing for years. Please pick me! Please!

    —Stephanie on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced between a little and a lot. I have done a number of paper pieced projects (and really like it) but would like to do more!

    —Leslie Benoy on April 9, 2015
  • I am fairly good at paper piecing and like it for its creativity.

    —Ann KUhn on April 9, 2015
  • I enjoy paper piecing and have taught Judy Niemeyer’s method. I love the small projects. They give you a chance to try something different without a big commitment, i.e. block or color.

    —Pam on April 9, 2015
  • I wouldn’t call myself an expert (I can still cut that piece an eighth of an inch too short!lol) but I have done a lot of paper piecing. I will even draw up my own pattern to get make a unit for a block. I do adore the perfection of the resulting blocks!

    —Marie Sagers on April 9, 2015
  • Have practiced a little. Would like to do more.

    —Mary Dockery on April 9, 2015
  • Had it not been for learning how to paper-piece I wouldn’t have stuck with quilting. What I had been told was relaxing by others made me a nervous wreck! Trying to get all those intersections to match wasn’t for me. As a last resort, I tried paper-piecing and learned I could sew on a line. From there on out I had the confidence to continue on in quilting and even after all these years would much prefer to paper-piece when possible.

    Cindy A. on April 9, 2015
  • Guess you could say I have practiced a lot… I love paper piecing and absolutely love minis… my all time favorite. This would be a wonderful win… Hope I am lucky.

    —Sally Dea on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little and I like it! :>)

    —Georg on April 9, 2015

    —Karen Flanigan on April 9, 2015
  • paper piecing is my method of choice! I think it is an easy way to come up with an accurate finished project.

    —Nancy on April 9, 2015
  • I haven’t tried paper piecing, willing to learn. The batiks are so pretty. Mini quilts are so cute.

    —Quilting Tangent on April 9, 2015

    —Donna on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try… I’ve signed up for a class though so I want to learn!

    —Judy F on April 9, 2015
  • I feel that I am competent with foundation piecing. I enjoy the process and like how I can achieve sharp points. I’m not too fond of the removing the paper part of things. That’s always a bit of a mess.

    —Ann D. on April 9, 2015
  • Have not tried paper piecing yet but have been wanting to take the jump. LOVE small projects!!

    —Judy Holm on April 9, 2015

    —Kate on April 9, 2015
  • I have never tried paper piecing but looking at these little gems I think I would like to try it. I love little quilts also.

    —Lissa Whittington on April 9, 2015
  • I would say very practiced, but not perfect. I love to do paper piecing – working on the Project of Doom – Harry Potter quilt right now and have done many hangings for my door at work. I would do the sunburst right away if I won this book. It would be a great summer door hanger.

    —DebV on April 9, 2015
  • I’m not shy to try, just haven’t had the chance to try.

    —J. Reeves on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little. I just completed the top of Midnight Floral Fantasy by Karen Buckley with Pineapple blocks. I like the accuracy.

    —Susan Green on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced some, I learned the technique on-line from an Amy Gibson class.

    —Vin on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little.

    —Sue Jones on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done paper piecing for more years than I care to mention! I love it! After finishing a large quilt, I usually do a mini for some instant gratification. I’m doing a 7″ x 7″ Trip Around the World mini right now. I keep a few on hand to give for hostess or house warming gifts. I mat & frame them. They are always well received. I’d love Little Gems as a new source of inspiration! Thanks!

    —Janet Frank on April 9, 2015
  • Love the result of paper piecing, just not the paper removal. However these little ones look like fun!

    —Ann on April 9, 2015
  • Too Shy to try! ALL the paper pieced quilts/projects that I have seen are absolutely beautiful. One day I WILL try this!!!

    —Linda Lyle on April 9, 2015
  • I have seriously struggled to "get" paper piecing. My brain wants to do everything bass-ackwards from now it should be! I’m getting better, though, and just finished a little 10×10 block of three tiny little tulips and am quite tickled with it! I only had to rip out two seams in the whole thing! I’m excited to try some more little projects.

    —Jeannie R. on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced some, but have a long way to go. It’s fun and challenging but can also be somewhat irksome. I probably just need more practice!

    —Mary on April 9, 2015
  • Total newbie! I’ve had it on my bucket list to try for years, but finally tried it. It’s fun! I do need the papers, though. Thanks!

    —Maryellen on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and the precision that you get from it. I love the designs that are possible through paper piecing that aren’t possible any other way. I am not an expert but I am still working at it!

    —Vicki on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a lot but I’ll never achieved perfection. I love Paper Piecing, prefer it every time.

    —Pam Schwarze on April 9, 2015
  • This is going to be a fun hop! I really enjoy paper piecing and have done a number of small quilts. As they say, ‘practice makes perfect’ well I’m a long way from that but it does get easier with each project. The effort is always well worth it.

    —Diane H on April 9, 2015
  • I tried it once and it was a disaster! I have watched a couple tute’s and it looks so easy, that I want to try again. Maybe on something small at first, but I am willing to try again.

    —Janet T on April 9, 2015
  • Love to paper piece! My friend thinks I am the paper piecing queen, but I am having a good time doing small projects

    Liz on April 9, 2015
  • Too shy to try…but these cute little gems might be a reason to give it a go!!

    —Nancy Matson on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and the accuracy you get. It always takes my brain a few minutes to thinking the technique way.

    —Kate on April 9, 2015
  • I love the way the blocks are so much more precise with paper piecing! I’ve done some small things paper pieced, but I don’t enjoy picking off the papers! I’d love to win some of that paper that is designed for ease of removal. I sometimes have problems with angled pieces, but have learned to make a copy of the pattern and cut the prices out bigger than needed around the cut-apart pieces. Then the block goes together beautifully.

    —Jean Blythe on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a bit of paper piecing and find you really have to be good at thinking backwards and upside-down! Sometimes I trim off a bit too much of the excess seam allowance and discover that wasn’t a good idea. But I want to do more and just love the little quilts in this book!!

    Susan Mulvihill on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little, but want to do more!

    —Linda Medina on April 9, 2015
  • practiced a little

    —Sue on April 9, 2015
  • I really love paper piecing – all those perfect points! And I’ve done a fair bit of it. My quilt guild’s BOM project last year was a Mariner Compass sampler – ranging from reasonably simple to outrageously complex. I’m not finished with mine, but it’s a lot of fun!

    —Karen Smith on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot. I have tried some of my ‘Dear Jane’ blocks this way and it really worked.

    —Kathy G on April 9, 2015
  • Love paper piecing – so I’ve practised alot! 🙂

    —Allison on April 9, 2015
  • Too shy to try. I. LOVE LITLE QUILTS. Never have tried paper piecing. My daughter has, so I should be okay with trying a new technique. Thanks for the offer. Hope I win.

    —Gloria Wilson on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little, but really want to do more.

    —Gina on April 9, 2015

    —Sharon on April 9, 2015
  • It would be fun to try one of these ‘gems’!

    —Kathy G on April 9, 2015
  • I’m new to pp, so I need to practice. But, I love the perfection of it.
    OMG! The fabric chosen for this giveaway takes my breath away, they are so beautiful. I would be walking on air if I were picked as a winner. Thank you in advance.

    —Nancy N on April 9, 2015
  • I have made two quilts that were paper-pieced. I like the technique.

    —Sandy Cline on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little…but need to try again.

    —jan on April 9, 2015
  • I think once you get paper piecing, you can’t stop. I absolutely love paper piecing, I love how the points come out just perfect. So, I would have to say that I have practiced a lot.

    —Lisa Tenny on April 9, 2015
  • I enjoy paper piecing.

    —Ana-Maria on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a few small paper pieced projects. I love how precise this technique is. I save all my scraps, so this book would be a great resource for using some of them.

    —Vicki Fox on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little with paper piecing am I’m sure I’ll do more.

    —Agnes on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve only tried it once, but think it would be a great skill to perfect.

    —Brenda Mc on April 9, 2015
  • I paper piece most of my quilt blocks, so I guess that makes me "practiced to perfection", even if I do still rip out an ocaissional seam. Send me the book, and I would love to send photosin return!

    —Lynne on April 9, 2015
  • I am learning paper piecing with hexigons. I wish I could find a book on hexigon patterns.

    —Sherrie Chrysler on April 9, 2015
  • I managed to do a couple of pieces. I kept getting caught up in which way I put the paper pattern.

    —Robbie Schoonover on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a few and see a lot of projects in the future.

    —Bonnie Stone on April 9, 2015
  • I am shy to try but would love to win this nice bundle.

    —Rachel Gagnon on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve not done a lot of paper-piecing, but I like it. I like it because of the precision and the sharpness of corners and points. Once I discovered the freezer paper folding method of paper-piecing, I’ve not looked back.

    —Lana Frazier on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve only practiced a little, but I’m hooked!! Thanks for the sweet giveaway 🙂

    —Terry on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a little bit of paper piecing, but am probably using wrong products because it is too hard to remove paper.

    —Rosie Guadiana on April 9, 2015
  • I have never done paper piecing, but sure would like to try!
    This would give me a great start. Thanks for the give-away.

    —Cecelia on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little I’d say. I’ve made quite a few blocks, some more complicated than others.

    —Jen B on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve tried paper piecing, but was barely successful—need lots more practice. I like the look of the blocks, and hope to get better.

    —Darla Zimmer on April 9, 2015
  • I have to admit I’m not great at paper-piecing–I’d say that I practice a little usually when I’m in a quilting block of the month and it is a required block. I’d really like to get to perfection, but not sure that is even possible for me.

    —Barb B. on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve been to shy to try, but strongly considering giving it a go.

    —Sandy on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing on larger blocks and really like it and the ability to print off my patterns on the foundations paper is great. I have been thinking of trying some of these smaller quilts for fun daily projects this looks like a winner for me.

    —Elayne Novotny on April 9, 2015
  • I have done several paper-pieced projects in between traditional quilting, and somehow every time I come back to paper piecing, I am reminded all over again how much I like the precision as well as the ability to do things with seams that you just cannot do with regular piecing or applique. Love it!

    —Marcia Sanders on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot and done several intricate designs. Love it and would love this prize!

    —Janie O on April 9, 2015
  • paper piecing was not my favorite quilting activity, but when I found a perfect quilt design for my grandson’s birthday, I bit the bullet and tackled it. Was very rewarding especially when he just loved the town with roads,parks and train tracks for all his little cars/trucks and trains.paper piecing allows for alot of scraps to be used

    carol on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. Took classes with the queen herself, Carol Doak. Really enjoy the "perfection" paper piecing allows.

    —barbara berdy on April 9, 2015

    —LaVonne on April 9, 2015
  • I’v done one small project with paper piecing. I’d say it’s time to try it again!

    —Martha on April 9, 2015
  • Not tried paper piecing but loved the look of these miniatures – think I’ll have a have a go.

    —June on April 9, 2015
  • I have a couple of Judy Niemeyer projects to make, and when I think about it, I have done a fair amount of paper piecing. I do prefer to use the machine as opposed to hand paper piecing. Whatever method works to get the job done is the way I go.

    —Whiskers on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing, some of which I liked (with fabric cut
    to estimated size) and some of which I found very tedious and repetitive
    (picking out a fabric suitable and matching to make a border). I would do more when the occasion arises, but would enjoy it best to have size and shape precut.

    —Claire on April 9, 2015
  • I took one paper piecing class for Snails at Sea in January and so far have only finished two squares. Love it though. So precise. I took another class last weekend for the Liberty Crown and I’m cruising through the blocks. Very anxious to get both done now. I love learning new things and techniques in quilting.

    —Teresa Cash on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing. I like the results but still find it challenging and tend to shy away from it.

    —Kathy B on April 9, 2015
  • practiced a little, but am interested in trying more!

    —Linda Thomas on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and have become quite good at it, even with directional fabrics :). There are little tricks to it that can make it so much easier, that’s for sure! Thanks for the giveaway, I would love to win!!

    —Corky on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a little bit of paper piecing. It’s on my "to do" list to try more.

  • I am Shy to Try… would love to but I just need to take that leap of faith that I can do it..

    —bonnie on April 9, 2015
  • Fairly well practiced at paper piecing, but really prefer freezer paper piecing as I’m too lazy to tear off the paper!

    Susan on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a fair amount of paper piecing and enjoy it for the most part. What I don’t enjoy is cleaning up the tiny trimmings and the paper scraps after removal. Little Gems is definitely on my must have list. Thanks for sharing and offering a giveaway.

    —Audrey on April 9, 2015
  • I love to paper piece but haven’t done any big projects with this method. Love that the points come out so nicely.

    —Shari on April 9, 2015
  • i have paper pieced a little would like to do more

    —margo k on April 9, 2015
  • I have a huge passion for paper foundation piecing. I have practiced to perfection and always eager to try a new pattern. I am self taught, have never had any lessons in any type of quilting. I often have fellow quilters say, " oh-can you share that block with me"? Usually they are referring to a paper foundation pieced block. These type of blocks to me are crisp, clear, precise and almost kaleidoscope like. I watch and learn a lot from quilting U tube videos. I look forward to Martingale emails every week. It is such a joy to receive their emails as they have a great variety and are unlike any other emails I have received. I have never won fabric and would be honored to do so. Hey thanks for reading this. Have a great spring day………SEW-HAPPILY!

    Sandy on April 9, 2015
  • I love to paper piece. I’ve even designed a few of my own. I love the results…as close to perfect as you can get.

    Jill of Apple Avenue Quilts on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little – enough to be anxious to finish a UFO from several years ago that at the time I didn’t want to finish because it was no fun. I love little projects!

    —Joy on April 9, 2015
  • I feel pretty confident with my paper piecing. I don’t even feel that when I learned it was that hard, but the results are well worth it.

    —Mindy Saye on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing!! I agree the cleaning up of the paper scraps is a pain, but I would love to win!

    —Barbara Pricola on April 9, 2015
  • Need practice, did my first complete block (row) last summer. Really like the fabric and could use the practice in paper piecing.

    —Karen on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little bit with paper piecing. I made Christmas ornaments a few years ago and a baby quilt of paper pieced animals. I love the accuracy of points but do not like picking out all of the paper pieces.

    —Herma Hughes on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little, would love to evolve to practiced to perfection!

    —Cindy DeWulf on April 9, 2015
  • I bought a book, but I have not tried piecing yet.

    —Joanne Jones on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done some paper piecing and love the accuracy. This would be a perfect book for me as I,have decided
    I need to go small as I am running out of space for big quilts but have lots of fabric to,use up, and Imwill always
    Need more new fabric. Thanks for the the opportunity!

    —Roberta Byers on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try! Would like to try!

    —Marla merryman on April 9, 2015
  • So far I have taken one two hour class which introduced me to the technique. I was blown away with how precise and delicate the results can be. So I did buy a couple of patterns that are paper pieced, but have yet worked up the courage to try them.

    What a bright splash of color the fabrics to be given away are! Would bring spring to our gray and damp corner of NYS!

    —Kate on April 9, 2015
  • shy to try

    —C Courtney on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing! I have practiced a lot. I have done a abc,123, quilt for a granddaughter and a large wall hanging with bird of paradise flowers on it. thanks for sponsoring Connie’s book.

    —Mary Ebert on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a lot of paper piecing and I’m willing to try just about anything paper pieced. The results I’ve gotten from the many patterns I’ve used have always pleased me.

    —Lisa Marie on April 9, 2015
  • I have practised a lot of foundation piecing. I’ve made several quilts in this way but never a miniature. Little Gems are just gorgeous!

    —Yvonne Reid on April 9, 2015
  • I think I am in the "practiced a lot" catagory. I made a miniature Dou-ble Wedding Ring table topper a few years ago. Really like it. I have done other projects as my son gave me Quick and Easy Quilting by Davis and Schiffer in 2000.

    —Lorraine Robertson on April 9, 2015

    —Debi Tisdale on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done some PP but and enjoy it once I wrap my head around the "reverse thinking" necessary to do it. I do a lot of self-talk for each new fabric piece added.

    —Mary on April 9, 2015
  • Years ago the ladies left the paper in the quilt. I sometimes do that too!

    Barb Beason on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve never done any piecing and am not quite sure what it is all about. I haven’t had the nerve to try it yet, but hopefully one day I will be up for the task.

    —Barbara on April 9, 2015
  • Love, LOve, Love the fabric.I would love to win this!! I would say to the question of paper piecing? "SHY TO TRY" because I have never tried paper piecing, need to "Research to be able to understand the Piecework" gonna do that soon.

    —Debra Ingle on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try

    —Patti Giannetta on April 9, 2015
  • I have PP a little. Getting started is the hardest/ most confusing step for me. I love the accuracy and great designs that you can achieve with PP that you could never get with traditional quilting. Some of the lovely ladies at my quilt guild have awesome ideas to make this whole process less frustrating for me! If someone would stop by and clean up all the little pieces of paper and fabric all over the floor and myself it would be even better!

    —Sara on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little.

    —Beverly Harding on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little….. Why does paper piecing intimidate me? This beautiful bundle would surely boost my confidence. Thanks for the chance

    —Amy Caldwell on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try. Don’t want to start another UFO. Maybe a little one would get finished.

    —Laura on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done some PP in sampler quilts.
    I’d love to have this great book and those wonderful fabrics to make some of the patterns!

    —Linda Fleming on April 9, 2015
  • I have not had the nerve to try paper piecing. I can’t picture the end results in my mind, like what happens to all the paper you’ve left in the quilt. What if you have to wash said quilt. Yep! I’m a chicken!

    —Sheila Gaston on April 9, 2015
  • How’s your paper-piecing prowess: practiced a little, practiced a lot, practiced to perfection, or shy to try?

    Hmmmm … "guess practiced a little" best describes my experience. I did make a wall quilt with paper pieced star blocks but most of my paper piecing has been very small, simple projects like Christmas ornaments.

    —Kristine Sveinson on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a bit of paper piecing. I saw this book a while ago and
    want it soooo much. I love Paper Piecing.
    Thanks
    Pauline

    —pauline on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a lot and like it

    Carolyn on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a few blocks. I found that you need to do several different ones in a row to start to get the hang of how to do it.

    —Betty T on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve tried a few times, really want to learn how to pp. Love the look of prefect points and mini quilts to display all over the house.

    —Kim Waknitz on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. I have a moderate amount of experience mostly with Carol Doak’s books and online lessons.

    —Kathy Merris on April 9, 2015
  • I am a newbie when it comes to paper piecing. I took a class recently and did a coaster-sized piece — 5″ by 5″ — but that’s all I’ve done. I’m anxious to try more!

    —Diana Steverson on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper piecing a lot. Sewing with paper always brings pleasing results. Paper piecing is like painting by number, or coloring inside the lines. You just cannot go wrong with paper piecing. I’m practicing the paperless paper piecing technique now.

    —marlene on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little.

    —Anna Schmidt on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little with paper-piecing a mini quilt and loved it. I would love the change to make some more!

    —Pat on April 9, 2015
  • I am shy to try; however, after seeing all of the beautiful quilt patterns maybe it is time to make the leap.

    Barbara Sedlacek on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve tried it a couple of times. Not proficient. Should practice more!

    —Rene Bolton on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing, don’t get to do it as often as I would love to.

    —Michele on April 9, 2015
  • I have made one quilt with New York Beauty blocks. I need practice! I haven’t done much with little quilts….would like to try!

    Chris on April 9, 2015
  • "Shy to try"…That sure sums up my paper piecing skills. I have everything I need except courage. I have no idea why I keep putting it off but I will try it, I swear on my granny’s old fabric.

    —Maureen Niemeyer on April 9, 2015
  • As many times as I’ve watched the videos and read the instructions, I still do not understand the concept of paper piecing. I do love the finished product, but am not sure if it’s a technique I would be able to master. I seem to be stuck in "pinwheels and 9 patch" land. Perhaps, since today would have been my mom’s 90th birthday, it’s a sign that I need to step out of my comfort zone and give it a try.

    —debra lee on April 9, 2015
  • I have only done a little PP, but I really like it and have a few projects lined up. I stick to fairly simple patterns. A little hesitant to go to complex patterns.

    —Susan on April 9, 2015
  • Very shy about trying it. I’ve been reading several blogs and other information and it looks very interesting, but haven’t been brave enough to try it yet. Wow! though, I’ve seen some very intriguing projects and it’s definitely on my to do list!

    —Teckla on April 9, 2015
  • I am a new/novice quilter and don’t know what paper piecing is. Would love more info on this technique.

    —Jeri G on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a fair amount of paper piecing. I enjoy it, but it is somewhat time consuming. I really like these small projects, though, because they can be completed in a relatively short time and look great!

    —Carol Sandberg on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a lot. I love to paper piece. Great way to get perfect points.

    —Vickie Storey on April 9, 2015
  • As I’m a beginner in paper piecing, these little gems would be a great way to practice. Great inspiration to see the same quilt done in different colors. Love both colorways from yesterdays blog hop, but prefer the fall colors, as I have leftovers from a batik fall quilt.

    —Karin Sablik on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little, but about 20 years ago. I have a PP pattern that I already chose fabric for that I’m starting on Saturday.

    —Jan N. on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little but confident.

    —Lisa England on April 9, 2015
  • I’m afraid I am a shy to try person…I would love to learn the technique of paper piecing but am afraid to dig in and give it a try…maybe if I’m the lucky winner it will give me the courage to make the plunge. I always say nothing ventured nothing gained…thanks for all the wonderful information you share on your sight with us.

    —Barbara Dolan on April 9, 2015
  • I have just started and am a novice. But, I’m learning!

    —Paula on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try.

    —J. Reed on April 9, 2015
  • Fairly well practiced. I love to paper piece b/c the results are always great.

    Denese on April 9, 2015
  • I have taken and made one paper piecing project. It turned out ok but I would love to become better at it. You can make such intriguing quilts with paper piecing and I would like to be able to do such quilts or projects.

    —Lori Chvojka on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little- but really like the accuracy

    —Karen on April 9, 2015
  • I have only just started paper piecing, so far not made a bad job, in fact really looking forward to my next little project. Would love to learn more about little tricks and maybe even shortcuts.
    Carol

    —Mrs C Tilley on April 9, 2015
  • Love Paper-piecing. I use the method where you stitch next to the folded paper, not through it which means no paper to rip out AND you can re-use the paper 4-5 times. Love small quilts!

    —KT. on April 9, 2015
  • How’s your paper-piecing prowess: practiced a little, practiced a lot, practiced to perfection, or shy to try? – I would have to say "practiced a little"..but I am going to jump back in with this book because I DO have a big crush on little quilts!
    These look like fun!

    —Sheila Hewitt on April 9, 2015
  • I’m for sure shy to try. Would like to try PP, thanks for the opportunity!

    —Tammy on April 9, 2015
  • I’m shy to try but I really want to because the results that I see from other quilters are really something; so precise and clean and perfect! I really want to learn to do paper piecing and these small projects are just the ticket. Keeping my rulers crossed to win this one!

    —Barbara Hubbard on April 9, 2015
  • I have done some paper piecing, would like to learn a little more~!

    —Pat K on April 9, 2015
  • Oh My..What beautiful, little ,perfect quilts……I would love to be confident in my paper piecing, but I am shy and have tried…I thank you for the chance to win such a lovely prize…..

    —Lori M. on April 9, 2015
  • I love this site, and all the ideas of many different kinds of quilts.
    I love both paper piecing and Batiks, and would love to make a quilt combining these two formats. I am a senior citizen who is homebound, and on a limited income of S.S., so I can’t purchase everything I fall in love with, but do allow myself a treat once in awhile. Jerry Ann

    —Jerry Ann Haynam on April 9, 2015
  • I love the look of paper piecing, but I have been afraid to do it myself 😉

    —Linda on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper-piecing quite a bit, but that was several years ago. Am eager to work with it again with small quilts such as these!

    —Margaret on April 9, 2015
  • I have never paper pieced. It looks like a lot of fun.

    —Julie on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot. I have made a few quilts using paper piecing. It’s a great technique when there are lots of points and intersections that need to match.

    —Judy on April 9, 2015
  • I love the precision of paper piecing. I’ve don a lot of it. Always eager to find something new.

    —Karen J on April 9, 2015
  • I have only paper pieced about 5 blocks a long time ago but have bought the book to make Tidal Pool for my daughter. How do I obtain the free epattern from your site? Thanks for the giveaway. Would love to have that gorgeous fabrics and the paper piecing sheets. Helen G.

    —Helen G. on April 9, 2015
  • I like to try all kind of techniques/piecing…so, I did PP. At first, I didn’t care for it, but by the time I was finished with my project, I was hooked. It is a great way to have everything come out perfect.thank you….marta

    —marta on April 9, 2015
  • I have not done a lot with paper piecing (there seems to be a bit of a learning challenge involved :). I can certainly see where it would be useful on some of the pattern designs that require using small pieces.

    —Lynn on April 9, 2015
  • To scared to try. Would love to start off with the right guidelines / information

    —Louise Munns on April 9, 2015
  • I have several patterns but I have not tried paper piecing.

    —Judy Smith on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little. I just can’t seem to get the hang of it. Maybe if I practiced on a small quilt, I’d figure it out! (hint, hint!)

    Barb Johnson on April 9, 2015
  • I am a bit hesitant to do paper piecing, but I have used it to make some beautiful Mariners Compass blocks. I guess I should try some more.

    —Bridget on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing! My experience is in the practiced a lot range!

    —Vicki Sprain on April 9, 2015
  • I love the "little gems". Have collected books on miniatures to make quilts for my dollhouse and still have not taken the time to do so. I hope to in the near future. Your quilts are inspiring me. Way to go!!

    —Linda L. Baker on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve "practiced" and done a lot of paper piecing. I love it! Especially the way each block turns out so perfect!

    —Carol Hinkle on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and feel that I have practiced to perfection, having pieced two king-size quilts. I love those perfect points! I would love to try the beautiful patterns in "Little Gems" with your gorgeous fabric. Crossing my fingers!

    —Kathy Biciocchi on April 9, 2015

  • I’m shy to try. I’ve done a lot of machine quilting but never tried piecing. Maybe it’s time to branch out!! Thanks for the opportunity to try to win.

    —Christie on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper piecing quite a bit and I love it! I recently made a log cabin with 49 paper-pieced 7″ blocks, finished about 50″ square, for a lap quilt for my husband. Then I made a tiny (8″ x 10″) tumbler quilt using about a hundred, all different, 1 1/2″ squares. Both turned out great and were lots of fun!

    —Pam McCoy on April 9, 2015
  • I’m afraid my paper piecing skills are only a little practiced. I would like to be much better.

    —Pamela Zajicek on April 9, 2015
  • I am a little afraid to try, but the more I see it the more I am wanting to jump it and try. These little quilts seem to be a perfect way to do that!

    —Karen Cudney on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little. Love the finished effect! I just took a class to help me get more comfortable with it. Would love the stash to keep me going!!!

    —Alice on April 9, 2015
  • I am in the middle of making the quilt "Memories of Christmas past." I am at a standstill on paper piecing the beautiful Poinsettias because I have never paper pieced and want to take a private class with my "favorite teacher", the owner of my favorite quilting shop. Th fabric is beautiful and would love the chance to win. Thank you for sharing.

    —Alesha K on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a few projects with plans to do more!

  • My friend is a PP queen, but I’ve only dipped a toe in the waters. I love small projects like these to hang on my wire stands.

    —Mona on April 9, 2015
  • I’m pretty confident with paper piecing, have finished some projects and regularly use triangle paper which is also a method of paper piecing.

    —Ruth Sunday on April 9, 2015
  • I am afraid to try paper piecing. I am scared I will really mess up. Would really like to try.

    —Susanna on April 9, 2015
  • I have not done any paper piecing as of yet. I am somewhat new at quilting. In fact, I have been taking out all of the stitches in the quilt I have done. I look forward to doing little quilts. I truly enjoy making quilt tops, it allows the artist in me to enjoy creating something colorful. It is like painting with cloth.

    —ArizonaQuiltinGranny17 on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing! I have made 6 minatures with over 300-400 pieces in each. I have also paper pieced an oversized king quilt with mariner’s compasses and stars. It is my favorite "go to" method of putting a quilt together be it very small or very large. The precise points make all the difference!

    —Kathleen Barrett on April 9, 2015
  • I have been afraid to try paper piecing but I think I should give it a try. Paper pieced blocks are really stunning! I have some patterns, just haven’t tried it yet. Thanks for a chance in your giveaway, the fabrics, book and papers are fantastic!

    Marsha B on April 9, 2015
  • Definitely in the "shy to try" category, but these projects look like the perfect learning experience. These fabrics are gorgeous!

    —Jean on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little, and look forward to more practice in the near future.

    —Laura on April 9, 2015
  • I just love paper piecing. I have made a large quilt and many wall hangings. I have a group of friends that are learning to use this method. I really like the way all of the points turn out so well. I have used this method for about a year.

    —Jean Jacobs on April 9, 2015
  • I am at practiced a little. Just beginning to do paper piecing and these quilt are beautiful. I know the little ones will be amazing.

    —Becky on April 9, 2015

    I just got the book and have already started searching for a small rack to hold my yet to be made quilt. So excited to start my new "Little gem" project!

    —Sonja Epidendio on April 9, 2015

    —Karen on April 9, 2015

  • Practiced a little, more like once or twice! But would like to try again!

    Susie Greene on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a few things using paper piecing.

    Judy Cooper on April 9, 2015
  • Just a few things, some Christmas ornament panels this past year, and I have a kaleidoscope pattern I’ve saved that I want to use jeweled batiks on. I think paper piecing is what I want to use to make some custom labels for the backs of the baby quilts I make, easier to make miniature stars blocks

    Sharon

    —Sharon Schipper on April 9, 2015
  • Oh my I am going to have to say that I am too shy to try!! I keep seeing them, and printing out the patterns and then letting them intimidate me!!

    —April Hurley on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced it some but I could use improvement/practice, I do like the results, very accurate for small details and sharp angles. I enjoy small projects that can be finished in a reasonable time not weeks or months.

    —Sue on April 9, 2015
  • Made one patriotic quilt with paper piecing – turned out well and it was fun. Hope to try more projects soon.

    —Carol on April 9, 2015
  • Love the precision of paper piecing, but it seems very fiddley while in the process. I’ve practiced a few times, and can see improvement in my skills. These small projects are just the right size for this technique!

    —Roxann on April 9, 2015
  • I love it all, but paper piecing, applique and landscape quilts are my favorites of the aspirations. I just wish there were 48 hours in a day and I only needed to sleep 8 of them! This would be such a jewel of a book to own, and the treasure of those fabrics…oh my.

    I would be in 7th Heaven to be a winner. I will soon be 75 and still loving to craft.

    thank you

    —Carol C on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve been looking for mini quilts to make one as my next project. These are beautiful and just what I was looking for

    —Marva Daley on April 9, 2015
  • I have watched all the available tutorials on paper piecing, but haven’t had the guts to try it yet. It seems to be a very accurate way of piecing, so I need to give myself a push to do it.

    —Aida Jacques on April 9, 2015
  • I’m shy to try.

    —Denise Campbell on April 9, 2015
  • I have been wanting to try small project paper piecing. I tried once, and gave up – instead did the piecing without paper. It was large enough and not complex so I got away with it. I want to learn!

    —Nancy Gilbert on April 9, 2015
  • Practised a little – would like to improve!!

    —Gill on April 9, 2015
  • I fall into the space between a little and a lot, I love the accuracy of paper piecing and only make mini quilts. I am looking forward to following the hop, I love seeing other people’s interpretations of designs.

    —denise on April 9, 2015
  • I guess I would have to say that I have been shy to try, friends ha e been working on me, though. I’ve used paper for strip quilts, maybe that counts?

    —JoAnne T. on April 9, 2015
  • I LOVE PP! I prefer it to piecing. L

    LLS on April 9, 2015
  • "Practiced a lot" .. well for the most part I can achieve success, but will work on it still! The results are fabulous in pp, points clean lines etc., it does eat a bit of fabric though. lol Love the little quilts awesome looking book!

    —Tonie Peterson on April 9, 2015
  • I have only made one paper piecing project but had no idea how to do it. I cut out the pattern, added 1/4 " to each side and sewed up using the numbers. It turned out 🙂 but now that I know what I am really supposed to be doing, looking forward to project #2!

    Mom on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a lot. Love paper piecing and little quilts.

    —Florence de Blieck on April 9, 2015
  • I do a fair bit of PP and love doing it. I also, love those fabrics, they are beautiful, thanks for the chance.

    —Janet Crossman on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little and LOVE the method for it’s accuracy. I am crazy about all of the Little Gems quilts and have already purchased the book. Looking forward to cranking some out and using up some scraps! ;o)

    —Sandy Myers on April 9, 2015
  • For a long time, every time I started a paper-pieced project, I’d sew the first piece down, realize it was wrong, and quit in disgust. I won a 2nd-place ribbon on a 9×13 project at my guild’s quilt show–it’s the one project I’ve finished. I’d like to do more, get better at it.

    —Jill Ellis on April 9, 2015
  • I guess I’m shy to try! I love the look but have been very intimidated to jump in! Perhaps it won’t be so difficult to try if I actually win this awesome prize! Thanks so much for the chance to win 🙂

    —Debby E on April 9, 2015
  • I have only paper pieced one time…. so far. It was a baby quilt and it turned out pretty well. It was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to more projects.

    —Cindy Mills on April 9, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it to be honest – always short of time so tend to stick to projects using pre-cuts and sew them by machine. BUT, the sample pictures from this book make me want to try!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this super prize.

    —Suzanne on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a lot.

    —Gwendolyn Clark on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done paper piecing now and then, but it’s just too slow for me. I like to see finished products on a larger scale. Perhaps a storm at see in pp some day, but for now I’ll just continue making lap sized quilts for a local nursing home. Those residents sure do appreciate quilts any time of the year.

    —Jeannette on April 9, 2015
  • Practised a little !

    —pauline east on April 9, 2015
  • I would say "practiced a lot" as I made a Judy Neimeyer "4th of July" design. The little quilts in this book speak to me. I would like to try one.

    —Rose-Marie on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little and is easier than I thought it would be.

    —Katy M on April 9, 2015
  • I used to be afraid to try paper piecing, but now I’m over that. I haven’t done any yet however as I have other things I’ve been doing.

    —VickiT on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried paper piecing. I am not especially good at it yet but practice makes perfect so I assume the more paper piecing I do the better I will become. It seem like it would be the perfect technique for small quilts.

    —Elizabeth Lamb on April 9, 2015
  • I love the look but have been shy to try.

    —Cathy King on April 9, 2015
  • Learning to paper-piece, but with regular printing paper which makes it a little difficult. Would love to try it with real foundation paper.

  • Practiced a lot & would love to practice more with this book.

    —Des on April 9, 2015
  • I love little projects!! I took a class in paper piecing years ago and I think they are really fun! Some more challenging than others, but all are fun and I love the sharp points one gets when sharp points are needed!!

    —Nancy P on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a love, but can do more.

    —Eugenia Emert on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little

    —Cheryl Hutchinson on April 9, 2015
  • I am "Shy to try". I have purchased paper for making string quilts but haven’t started yet.

    —Gail D. on April 9, 2015
  • Paper piecing is new to me, but I recently bought a Judy Neimeyer pattern. So, not totally afraid! The minis are adorable.!

    —Cheryl Buchanan on April 9, 2015
  • practiced a LOT! We made a paper pieced Storm at Sea for the guild raffle quilt one year and I put the thing together! It was 93″ square and so much fun! I love the preciseness of paper pieced points (say that three times quickly!) Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Jennifer P on April 9, 2015
  • I am a new quilter. I am only learning how to paper piece. It will be a new challenge for me. Doing a small quilt looks like fun.

    —Elizabeth Lubbering on April 9, 2015
  • I used to do a lot of paper piecing! Have gotten away from it BUT my quilt store is doing a paper piece block of the month starting next month! I am so excited! I use to be darn good at it!

    —ROBIN ADAMS on April 9, 2015
  • I really do enjoy paper-piecing. It makes everything perfect!

    —Janice on April 9, 2015
  • I have done paper piecing and love it even though I know some others who hate it. What I like the most is the precision of it all, nice sharp points and great intersections. I have a table top quilt frame that was made for me and I hang 12″ blocks on it.

    —Karen L. on April 9, 2015
  • I guess I’d consider myself between practiced a little and practiced a lot. I do enjoy PP and Island Batiks are absolutely wonderful. Batiks are great for PP because you don’t have to worry about right and wrong sides of the fabric. The new ones you’re showing are right up my alley – I love pinks and purples. 🙂

    —LJ on April 9, 2015
  • I am an avid Paper Piecer. I am working on a feathered Star BOM that has stars and border pieces all feathered and the ONLY way I could get such good points is paper piecing. BTW your foundation paper is the best! It goes through my printer perfectly and is the easiest to remove.

    —Judi Reiss on April 9, 2015
  • WOW! Those little quilts are awesome! My paper piecing prowess? Ummm, I guess I am shy to try.I have several patterns, but it looks kinda complicated to me. Maybe I just need more of an incentive. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    —Joyce Carter on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper piecing a little at a quilt shop class. Now loving it yet, but I may get there.

    —Marjory W on April 9, 2015
  • After completing one successful project, I haven’t gotten back to paper piecing for many years, but I love the little quilts patterns, and would like to make several!

    —Janet Miles on April 9, 2015
  • I have done quite a bit of paper piecing so, "Practiced a lot." is the category I would say. I still strive for more perfection.

    Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Mary Dahlberg on April 9, 2015
  • My first quilting project came from a paper piecing class (we did a log cabin block)I took soon after I retired, about 6 years ago. Now, I absolutely LOVE to paper piece!! I have saved scraps ever since and have made several gifts since then, as well as projects for my home. Each block is a wonderful surprise as it nears completion, especially when using original color combos. I’d say I’m in the "Practiced a lot" category.

    —Kathleen on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve completed several small projects using paper piecing, so I would consider that I’ve practiced a little and love it a lot.

    —Janey on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced alot lol I have made many big quilts and a couple small but the big chanellage was sewing 2″ squares. Great books I still need more practice and I am still learning so many new techniques. love quilting the learning and creativity just goes on and on. Ofcourse the great books with creative authors help.

    thank you
    Nancy

  • Practiced a little

    —Kathy hise on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a fair amount and would like to do more. I love the results – just not taking out the papers. I might try it with the wash-away stabilizer that all but disolves in the wash.

    —Judy on April 9, 2015
  • Shy to try.

    —Amy Swink on April 9, 2015
  • Very little experience with it. I guess too shy to try.

    —Darlene Welsh on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little… I have a few projects finished.

    —Christy on April 9, 2015
  • I haven’t paper pieced in awhile, but with these small quilts it is the ideal way to go. I have the table holder and would love to make more since medical issues mean I cannot not do as many larger quilts anymore.

    —Joan Horton on April 9, 2015
  • Love all the little quilts. I want to make them all! Have been paper piecing for years and love it – everything is so exact and I’m an exact addict.

    —Linda Gentry on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a fair amount of paper piecing, but need to do quite a bit more to be considered proficient. I appreciate the opportunity to win the book and bundle, as the designs are quite lovely.

    —Lynn Drzewucki on April 9, 2015
  • I have worked a little with paper piecing, I made a Mariners Star pillow. It turned out great and was a lot of fun!

    —Denise W. on April 9, 2015

    —June Taylor on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little, but paper piecing is a perfect technique for these cute miniatures.

    —Sandy W. on April 9, 2015
  • Relative newbie!!! Little Gems looks like fun.

    —JP on April 9, 2015
  • I have always been interested in paper piecing but long to just jump in and practice with some quilter to guide and encourage me. I live alone and do not drive because of Multiple Sclerosis. Where can I start?

    —Connie Douty on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little. I have made one 12 inch square wall hanging. I have a full size quilt to paper piece soon.

    —Carol on April 9, 2015
  • Too shy to try so far, but it is something I want to learn to do.

    —Judy on April 9, 2015

  • Love paper piecing but always room for improvement

    —Kerry Grose on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing! I have made several full size quilts using this method.

    —Barbara on April 9, 2015
  • Please draw my name!!. I would sooo enjoy learning this procedure from your group. Thanks, Donna

    —Donna Cole on April 9, 2015
  • Very ‘shy to try’. However, the book looks like it just might do the trick to get me started. Small is always better when you aren’t too sure what you’re doing.

    —Marcia Gault on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve only just started using this method. At the moment it’s quite daunting but thanks to the girls in my quilting group im slowly, slowly I’m getting there!

    —Jenny Cowdell on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little!!!Just the technique!

    —Sue Perry on April 9, 2015
  • Paper pieced a little and looking forward to more practice. I like using the add a quarter ruler to trim fabrics. Great book!

    —Eva Holen on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a little paper piecing, and enjoy it. I love the way everything comes out so precise.

    —Nancy on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced quite a bit. I have always had trouble with a triangle shape so I am currently working with a group doing stars similar to a Mariner’s Compass. I’m not sure I have mastered the paper pieced triangle but I am getting better and having fun!!

    —Maureen on April 9, 2015
  • My paper piecing is practiced a lot. I really enjoy paper piecing.

    —Martha Henrichs on April 9, 2015
  • practiced a litle

    —hazel on April 9, 2015
  • Paper piecing is one of my least favorite techniques in quilting. However, there are times when only paper piecing can give good results like when you need super sharp points. Then it’s paper piecing all the way!

    —Sandy P on April 9, 2015
  • I consider myself very accomplished at paper piecing. I was lucky enough to attend a 3 day symposium with Judy Niemeyer where she taught shop owners all of her techniques (I was asked to be the shop owner’s helper . I have also completed 3 Quiltworx patterns. I was never a great piecer even with 25+ years of quilting. I either relied on hand piecing or lived with the inaccuracy. Just completed A Flock Of Feathered Stars. Trust me I will not piece any other way and no one will be more excited than me to win.

    Cynthia Wood on April 9, 2015
  • practiced a lot

    —Bette Kelly on April 9, 2015
  • Wellllll, I have done a little paper piecing. At this point I need someone at my elbow encouraging me and stopping me from doing it all upside-down and backwards. However, I see many beautiful quilts that are paper-pieced and would love to become proficient and/or perfect in my attempts.

    —Janey on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done more English paper piecing than paper foundation piecing…but that mariners compass 1/4 compass in the little gems looks awesome…would love to try that one…..

    —Darlene Krystal on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done one quilt with paper piecing and had a hard time getting the hang of it but love the precision

    —Dwana on April 9, 2015
  • I guess you would call me "too shy to try". I have never tried it but would be willing to in the immediate future! I am fairly new to quilting so all things are possible…

    —Kris on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little. I’m sure it would get easier if I practiced a lot. Thanks for the book give-away.

    —Bea K on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done some paper piecing…. probably a practiced a little. I like doing it, but just not one of my first choices!

    —Christy Schreck on April 9, 2015
  • Ooh yum. Never too shy to try anything to do with sewing. I am one of those people that will make it up as I go, and it usually turns out fine. I don’t need to win to enjoy your pages, but it sure helps.

    —Shirl Hair on April 9, 2015
  • My paper-piecing prowess is "shy to try". I have thought about it but haven’t done any yet.

    —Carol Hanson on April 9, 2015
  • I have never done any paper piecing before but would love to one day. I have been saving a lot of the projects that are from Linda Hibbert from Silver Lining. There are so many beautiful things done with it so really hoping I can stop working so hard in my iris beds and start enjoying my sewing again. I would also like to learn more about appliqueing. Have also been saving a lot of things for that too. I want to stop saving and start doing though LOL.

    Cynthia Gallegos on April 9, 2015

    —Carol Mason on April 9, 2015

    —Kim Zwicker on April 9, 2015
  • I am very shy to try! But the pictures of those quilts make me want to try. Will dream about it tonight!

    —Cheryl on April 9, 2015
  • I would love to learn how to paper piece. Have saved a lot of things for that sort of quilting.

    Cynthia Gallegos on April 9, 2015
  • Guess I would say "practiced a lot". All the quilts look beautiful!

    —Nancy N on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little–tend to be a little wary but the results are great!

    Barb on April 9, 2015
  • I do practice a lot since I never do paper piecing before. Paper piecing make it exact edge.

    —nita indriani on April 9, 2015
  • I really like paper piecing, and have made a twin size quilt using the method. I liked the results a whole lot.

    —Linda Taylor on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced a little.

    —Lynn on April 9, 2015
  • I bought a copy of "Little Gems" and let my best friend look at it. She loved it as much as I did and now I wish I had bought her a copy. If I win one of the books, I will give it to her. We can work on the "little gems" together.

    Carolyn Paris on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing and it’s the only way to go on miniature quilts. I’ve done quite a bit (still need lots more practise) but I’ve set my work area up so that I can swing around from my machine to my little table that holds the cutting mat for trimming and the ironing mat with my little iron. Saves me jumping up and down all the time. Love the patterns in this book and the fact that they’re all 12 x 12.

    —Sherrill McKinnon on April 9, 2015
  • I have already purchased Little Gems. I love, love, love paper piecing and especially like the miniature projects. I plan on making each and every one of the patterns! There’s something about the challenge of working with the small pieces and seeing a finished project so quickly that’s so satisfying for me.

    —Sharon Morfick on April 9, 2015
  • I have never tried paperpiecing yet but it is on my list to try soon. I started quilting the end of January this year and have taken on techniques that for advanced quilters. It never occurred to me that I couldn’t do it:)

    —Rhonda Kopp on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced my paper-piecing very, very little.

    —Marie on April 9, 2015
  • I have never paper pieced. Save lots of paper and phone books to use when I do. So to shy to try I guess.

    —Debra Y on April 9, 2015

    —Judy on April 9, 2015
  • I am a little shy, but its something on my to learn list

  • I have been doing a lot of paper piecing lately – LOVE IT!

    —Diane McCandless on April 9, 2015
  • Grrrr…. I don’t know what’s WRONG with me??!! I’ve attended a foundation piecing class, and found it really easy. I can visualise what I need to do. I’ve even sat next to a friend and corrected her before she accidentally sewed her fabric upside down – BUT I CAN’T FIND THE COURAGE TO DO THIS ON MY OWN!!!
    I’m a good quilter! I’ve been quilting for 18 years! What’s wrong with me when it comes to Foundation piecing??

    I recently visited a friend who had many mini-quilts on display and I was so envious.

    I need to do that which scares me. I will buy Little Gems and make all 15 of the mini quilts therein. I will not be beaten!!!

    There are self-help groups for people like me aren’t there??? ;-D

    —Kayt Deans on April 9, 2015
  • I haven’t tried paper piecing yet because I’m scared I’ll mess it up.

    —Donna on April 9, 2015
  • I have "practiced to perfection"! Cute quilts. thanks

    —Sharon G on April 9, 2015
  • I have done enough paper piecing to feel comfortable with it and it is my favorite way of doing a complicated looking quilt. I especially love the little ones because they are faster, use small scraps and still look great!

    —Brenda Kehoe on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a lot, and I’m no where near perfect yet. Thanks.

    —JoyceLM on April 9, 2015
  • I have only paper pieced a couple of projects, but my goal is to make one little quilt for each month of the year to decorate with.. Paper piecing seems like the best way to create these small blocks.

    —Robin M on April 9, 2015
  • "Too shy to try". Actually, haven’t attempted to try because I would not know how or where to begin.

    —Pat Cosper on April 9, 2015
  • Pieced a little.

    —Dee Green on April 9, 2015

    —April on April 9, 2015
  • I have practiced paper piecing a lot. I have done several large table runners and toppers for Christmas gifts. I would love to have the book "Little gems" and more fabric to add to my stash. I love paper piecing for its accuracy.

    —Bonnie Trahan on April 9, 2015
  • I have done a very small amount of paper piecing, but did two animal quilts using foundation piecing. They turned out beautifully, and I enjoyed the process.

    —Janet G. on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced paper piecing once. Thought it was cool.

    —Sue on April 9, 2015
  • Oh….you’ve touched a nerve here….I am SO BAD at paper piecing!! I’ve tried several times, but I just can’t seem to get the hang of it! These minis look like the perfect place to try again!!

    Jacque on April 9, 2015
  • Love paper piecing. I have even tried my hand at drafting a project, but found it’s much harder than I thought. Will probably give it another try though. I’m also fond of EPP and have a quilt in progress. I also started a hand piecing project last week. Absolutely beautiful fabrics in the giveaway bundle. I know I could make good use of it. Thanks for the opportunity. 🙂

I’m looking forward to making one for twins coming in Oct. I’ve never tried paper piecing but I’m looking forward to trying it. I’ve been sewing since I was a little girl on my mom’s singer treadle machine. Thank you for considering me

    —Marti Zieg on April 9, 2015

    —Julie Willis on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. At first it is a challenge but then it becomes such fun. I made a 17 x 17 mini that had 1473 pieces in it – thought I was crazy but I finished it.

    —connie b on April 9, 2015
  • I took a class at the local quilt shop. It was a disaster for me. I finished two pieces while most others finished four and had their machines packed up and ready to go while the instructor was continuing to bail me out of wrong moves. I don’t give up easily so I’d like to try again!

    —Betty on April 9, 2015

    I have a few books on miniature quilts and love them, but the paper piecing is something different entirely…

    One of these days I may actually win something and get to try it!!!I have my fingers crossed!!!

    —Margaret McIntosh on April 9, 2015
  • Once I discovered paper piecing, I was hooked! I love the perfection of it. When I first started, I was plunging in blind. But once I took one class, the rest is history. I paper piece many parts of a quilt because of the accuracy in the result.

    —Juleen Jaeger on April 9, 2015
  • Have been paper piecing more than just a little, but not quite a lot. Have all the papers and the fabric for a queen, just have to get all the holes in the paper for many 16″ blocks. Why can’t I do easy projects????

    —Janet E. on April 9, 2015
  • The answer to your question for me is… practiced a little. I love paper piecing and find it relaxing to do and love the perfect points! Just don’t have many patterns for a lot of paper piecing projects. If I win, this little problem will be a problem no longer. LOL Thanks for the chance to win. Sewgrateful!

    —Opal Palmer on April 9, 2015
  • Haven’t tried paper piecing, but would love to give it a try because there are so many beautiful patterns and I like small projects.

  • I’ve previously paper-pieced only one project (a pink strip-pieced heart block for a group quilt as a gift to a cancer-fighting friend). But I love these Little Gems; I’ve already bought a holder and plan (as Office Manager) to make Little Gems to change monthly in display on the entrance-lobby countertop at my medical Home Care office. Thanks!

    Kathy Osterby on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried some paper piecing…New York Beauty style blocks, a rose and some roosters. I have a pattern for some snowflakes, but the pieces are so very tiny. I will need to be in the right mood to try that one. I do think it is kind of fun and very precise results are achieved.

  • Have done a little paper-piecing but am looking forward to trying some more as you have inspired me with your book.

    —Sharon Moore-Fisher on April 9, 2015

    —Janet on April 9, 2015
  • i have practiced a little bit, but I like it. Just need more practice and get used to being more generous with my fabric pieces!

    —Marilyn hodge on April 9, 2015

    —Debbie on April 9, 2015
  • I have some experience with paper piecing, but not lately. I guess that I could say that I have practiced a little. This is a great book! Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Judy W on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve done a LOT of paper piecing. There are some patterns for which it is really the only way to go. I don’t like templates and if you have stars with wonky angles, paper piecing is wonderful.

    The fabric is absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Ruth Rocker on April 9, 2015
  • Not sure how to answer, I followed the DVD of J de Jonge, made the wall hanging, started a couple others, made a circular table topper of Jinny Beyers, and have a Niemeyer class I will take this spring and all in under 8 months, but I still fill like a newby! Looking for more ideas, Kathy in Colo

    —chris zofkie on April 9, 2015
  • I have not purchased the Little Gems. I love paperpiecing,just don’t do much. I have a small group of quilters that comes to my studio every week to quilt. Little Gems is something we could as a group and finish and not have a ufo. Mildred on April 9,2015

  • I have done a fair amount of paper piecing – and I would love to do more using "Little Gems"!

    —Gwen W on April 9, 2015
  • I’d say I’ve practiced alot. I’ve made a couple of quilts with 6″ and 8″ blocks. I’ve inserted little 3″ paper pieced blocks into a vest and I’ve made a very involved wall hanging. I’ve taught paper piecing at our seniors centre and for our quilt guild. I do enjoy it and should probably do it more! I’d love to win!

    —Sandie on April 9, 2015

    —Rina on April 9, 2015
  • Paper Piecing, believe it or not, is high on my Bucket List. I can no longer work on large quilts (lack of arm strength) and am so anxious to now specialize in small quilts with – of course – the paper piecing technique!

    —Norma Weeks on April 9, 2015
  • I am excited to try it out. I’m sure that with the great blog-hop and the books that I will be completely hooked!

    —Ruth Merrill on April 9, 2015
  • I have tried it a little but still don’t fold back enough consistently. corners are not as accurate as I have seen others do. Guess I need to practice more.

    —Elizabeth Bechstein on April 9, 2015
  • I’ve been doing paper piecing for 15 years and am very comfortable with it. I don’t do a lot of it, but it’s great for intricate blocks with odd shapes.

    —LeAnne L on April 9, 2015
  • I love the paper-piecing technique and have practiced a little. Little Gems would be a great addition to my quilting library. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

    —Bonnie on April 9, 2015
  • My second quilting project was paper piecing dresses on manequins. I loved it. I didn’t even realize it was a challenge. I gave the quilt to a lady, also a quilter, with cancer. I was such a novice I didn’t even realize she might look at its construction closely … I have done several other projects – a Canadian flag, flowers, animals etc. I love it but would say I am practiced. Love the blog idea thanks

    —Judy on April 9, 2015
  • I have only tried paper piecing once on a very small project. Would love to learn the technique in the future. Love the small quilts!

  • I LOVE all the Little’s and Mini’s being featured. I really like paper piecing and am getting better and better each time I try. Your points always come out great but I still have a problem when joining paper pieced blocks as my seam allowance is not consistent. Totally operator error. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great looking book, paper foundations and fabric. WOW!

    —Angela Nohe on April 9, 2015
  • I have never been brave enough to try paper-piecing:( It appears difficult. I used to love paper dolls when I was little so maybe this is something I would be in love with.

    —Diana Salmon on April 9, 2015
  • My paper-piecing has been two wall hangings of the same pattern so it’s "practiced a little". I love these mini quilts and would make most of them. I’ve got the fabrics ready to go. I’ve tried itty bitty paper piecing but that was a little trying. Hope to do these.

  • I love paper piecing, and I love miniatures! I have practiced a lot I made an attic windows wall hanging with pp Christmas trees in each window and a Pythagoras’ Lute wall hanging for my daughter and son-in-law, who is a mathematician. I made two pp miniatures – one of four pineapple blocks and one of four different hearts for my friend who wrote a book of poetry with a heart theme – she is 97 and loves it. The book and fabrics look delicious!

  • I’ve done some pretty intricate paper piecing, including a bald eagle in flight that became the podium banner for my son’s Eagle Scout award ceremony. What I like about the patterns in this new book is the size of the finished piece – I have an Ackfeld frame, and am always looking for patterns this size that I can display on my frame. The batiks are beautiful! Thanks for sponsoring today’s stop on the hop!

    —AnnieH on April 9, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. I’ve done quite a bit. My most recent project is a quilt made of paper pieced blocks, each one from the scraps of one of my quilts… It’s going to be my scrapbook quilt. My next goal will be to make teeny tiny quilts…I’m really eager to learn!

    —Shaireen on April 9, 2015
  • I have yet to learn how to do these little gems especially piecing them..this would be a great start on a new adventure.

    —Esther on April 9, 2015
  • I taught myself to make paper pieced flying geese for my first quilt last fall, then my second quilt was entirely paper pieced kit (Seaswept) and I LOVE paper piecing, perfect every time. I don’t know why some find it hard. I would like to try it on this small scale. I. Don’t know if this happens to all new quilters but I see things almost everyday that I can’t wait to try- and these minis are another for my list.

    Sallie on April 9, 2015

    —Helen Merrick on April 9, 2015
  • I have "practiced a lot" but still learning.

    —jacki on April 9, 2015

    —masson christiane on April 9, 2015
  • The more Paper Piecing I do, the more I enjoy it. I have completed one with a beach theme and I have 2 more in the making. One 12″ block and 1 6″ block same patterns, different fabric. Once you get the hang of starting out with face up fabric and then have to change to face down, it becomes much easier. I just purchased 2 books of Mariner Compass so that will be my next project.

    —Maxine Funk on April 9, 2015
  • Practiced a little and juuuuuuuuuuuuuuust love how the points all work out perfectly.

    —Connie on April 9, 2015
  • Even though I have been saving all my scraps to make some minature quilts I have always been too shy to try. this book looks like the perfect answer as paper piecing has always seemed daunting too. The perfect marriage of mini quite and scrap busting learning a new technique.

    —Karen on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve never tried paper piecing, but if I were to win this set I would try it immediately–I love these fabrics and the tiny quilts!

    —Jeanette Fairman on April 10, 2015
  • I would have to say my paper piecing skill is a "WIP"–work in progress! However, some of my mistakes were quite enlightening and taught me something about design. So, I just pick some fun fabrics like Island Batiks and keep on plugging away. The great colors keep me motivated and wanting to learn more.

    —Adeline on April 10, 2015
  • Through all my years of helping my mom and aunts with their quilting bee’s, I had never seen or even heard of paper piecing quilting. It is a technique I think I would enjoy learning how to do though.

    —Teresa S on April 10, 2015

    —Martha Morgan on April 10, 2015

    —Marilyn on April 10, 2015
  • I like to paper piece with slightly larger pieces. Many of the smaller paper piecing patterns with their itty-bitty pieces scare me off. I am currently making a commission with paper-piecing fantasy elements with, yes, a book from Martingale/That Patchwork Place.

    —Mary on April 10, 2015
  • A lot of my friends do paper piecing, but I am shy to try. Would love to though.

    —Kathy Koke on April 10, 2015
  • I admit, "Shy to try". I have been wabting to try it since 2009. The more I see the more I want to try.

    And now it’s time to "Leave The Safe Zone".

    —Victoria Kraemer on April 10, 2015

    —Debbie Miller on April 10, 2015
  • So far I have used paper piecing in one quilt. I really liked it, it was like magic once I was done. I have been saving patterns so I can plan to use this technique again.

    —cj on April 10, 2015
  • Paper piecing is something I’ve tried once but haven’t gone back too. So this is a perfect time to try.

    —ckachel on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a little, and hungry for more. I love the precision and will be working on Christmas ornaments next.

    —Karla on April 10, 2015
  • I really like paper piecing. My big challenge was a New York Beauty quilt. I thought there is no way I can do that. Guess what, I did and it turned out great. Everything matched perfectly. Thanks for including me in your giveaway.

    —Mary Burn on April 10, 2015
  • Very much a novice. Have done a couple of practice pieces but never a whole quilt. Would like to get better at it. The fabric is gorgeous

    —Betsy on April 10, 2015
  • I love 12″ squares and paper-piecing is fun, once you get the hang of it. I’m sure these lesssons will get anybody started.

    Janet on April 10, 2015
  • I have only done a few paper piecing blocks. Still not sure whether or not I like the method, but will do it if I like a particular block. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    —Evie H on April 10, 2015

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on April 10, 2015
  • Practicing more and more… and getting better! I enjoy doing handwork!

    —Kelley on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a little. Love how you can make a small project and look so good with what appears like intricate details. The 12 x 12 projects in the book "Little Gems" re awesome. Will be a real treat to see how the remakes look. Thanks for the Blog Hop.

    —Bonnie on April 10, 2015
  • I have tried paper piecing several times and have become fairly proficient at it. I do love how the points are so nice and sharp and everything comes out gorgeous when done right.

    —Judy Magner on April 10, 2015
  • I want to try paper piecing … I don’t seem to "get" most of the directions, but need to dive in a try to "do" not just "read" … the rest of my current to do list has pushed this off so far … 🙁

    —Lynn on April 10, 2015
  • I have paper pieced a few times. Need lots more practice.

    —Sue on April 10, 2015
  • Just getting up the nerve to try Paper Piecing…thank you so much for the push to forge ahead!

  • I have done a little paper-piecing.

    —Peg on April 10, 2015
  • I must say that I have practiced a lot. When addicted to scraps like I am, paper piecing is really fun. The smallest quilts and most intricate blocks come out so perfect. AND your friends are just amazed at your skill. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous gift.

    —Carol Fleming on April 10, 2015
  • what a great call.

    —rita on April 10, 2015

  • Have been "shy to try" but have become brave, and would love to learn

    —Marian on April 10, 2015
  • Unfortunately unable to find comment box on Connie’s blog. Both quilts are beautiful but fabric gives such a different feeling

    Hi Elaine, you should be able to leave a comment on Connie’s blog here. Thanks for your comment! –Jenny

    —Elaine morton on April 10, 2015
  • I have not yet tried paper piecing but am itching to get going. Would love the bundle! The fabrics are fabulous and I love the book!

    —Carol on April 10, 2015
  • I am in the process of making my first big paper piecing project from the book "Simple to Sensational Batiks" by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan. I love the paper piecing oart, but hav a hard time with the curved piecing!! The miniatures look like such a refreshing breeze!! Maybe this big quilt will have to wait another few years!! I love choosing fabric for piecing blocks.

    —Polly on April 10, 2015
  • I love miniatures and can’t wait to see them on this blog hop. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book.

    —Gloria on April 10, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. It truly takes the stress out of quilting for me. The pieces always come out right with so little effort. I haven’t made many miniatures but am willing to give it a go after seeing these beauty’s.

    —CindyM in Oregon on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve yet to try paper piecing but after seeeing these little gems I just might jump in and give it a go.

    —Arlene Wilson on April 10, 2015
  • I find paper piecing absolutely fasinating – I have done some and look forward to doing more!

    —carla kuenzi on April 10, 2015
  • too shy to try.

    —rachel on April 10, 2015
  • I would say my paper piecing is not at the "perfection" stage but very close. I love the perfect points you get. It is great for the small projects and little scraps!

    —Karen on April 10, 2015
  • practiced a little, tried it , had fun with it but stopped when pulling out the sewing machine became to much (we were full-timing in an RV). Now we are more settled and the machine is OUT! and I am quilting more so I guess it is time to practice a little more.

    —pat cooper on April 10, 2015
  • I have tried it a couple of times but definitely need to practice! As much as I like the precision it brings, I am not fast and confident yet.

    —Cathey Self on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a lot, but practice makes perfect!

    —Deborah Fields on April 10, 2015
  • I’m a newbie as far as paper piecing goes, but appreciate that it’s so portable for grabbing those unstructured downtime moments when you can work on a small project, and that’s it allows precision in piecing. This book looks worthy with fun quilts.

    —Lydia R. on April 10, 2015
  • I have only done one block with paper piecing, but am anxious to do more. I am enchanted with small quilting projects!

    —Laurel Lee Pedersen on April 10, 2015

    —Becky G on April 10, 2015
  • I have done two paper piecing projects and I really enjoyed them! Looking forward
    to my next one! Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Lorna Rocha on April 10, 2015

  • I practiced a little.

    —Margaret on April 10, 2015
  • I tried paper piecing a long time ago but had only limited exposure, so now I’m shy to try – but hope to give it a go sometime in the future. Love batiks! Thanks for offering a prize!

    —Mary on April 10, 2015
  • I have been paper piecing for quite a few years. Love the accuracy. Would love to win this package as I was just looking for a 12″ block for my newly purchased frame.

    —Johanne Gagne-Brown on April 10, 2015
  • I like to think I have practiced a lot! I enjoy paper piecing more then any other form of quilt blocks. New York Bueaty’s and Mariner stars mad me hon my skills. Loved it!!! That 1/4 inch ruler was my best purchase ever! Works like a charm for paper piecing!

    —Dorothy Holt on April 10, 2015
  • I have not had the courage to try it although I like the patterns that require it. Willing to learn.

    —Francine Shaw on April 10, 2015
  • I have tried it with several different patterns and love the results! It is fast becoming one of my favorite sewing/quilting techniques! Thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway. It is most generous of you!

    —Cindy D on April 10, 2015
  • I have only done a little paper piecing, but would really like to do more. I really need practice!

    —Barb Casper on April 10, 2015
  • I don’t PP. I don’t quite understand it but I’ve never taken the time. I try to finish 1 project at a time before I start a new one

    —joanne roberts on April 10, 2015
  • Surely a little shy but would love to win the beautiful fabric and try real hard to accomplish the workings of a pp small quilt! Pick me please!!!!!!

    —Cindy B. on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve made two quilts by paper piecing so I have a lot of practice but wouldn’t say I’m good at it. lol! I love the idea of quilting little projects instead!

    —Cindy S on April 10, 2015
  • I have never done paper piecing before. This would give me a great opportunity to try it.

    —Sandi Detrick on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve tried it without success…I need this book!

    —Renee Welton on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve "practiced a little" paper piecing…but this book would certainly be a good place to practice more…such cute little projects!

    —Sherry Book on April 10, 2015
  • I love the designs but I’ve been afraid to try…I love the great triangle points you can get by paper piecing. This book would let me try on a small scale instead of a large quilt.

    —Susan Robbins on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a lot, but can’t say I’m achieving perfection. But I certainly do like paper piecing, and I’m also currently enjoying making mini quilts. What an awesome giveaway, and thank you for the opportunity to win! Good luck to everyone!

    —Kathleen on April 10, 2015
  • I love the look of these very sweet little quilts. I would definitely love to have a go with paper piecing. Please put my name toward for a chance to win the pack of little gems and paper for paper piecing.

  • shy to try but think it would really help with accuracy

    —Linda on April 10, 2015
  • I love paper piecing, and have practiced a little. I have tried geometric and a fair number of animal blocks. While I like the looks of the animal blocks, the geometrics are much more fun to actually sew.

    —Kim on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve been too shy to try. This size of quilt would be good place to strart.

    —mary fielder on April 10, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot. There is something comforting about paper piecing and I love the results!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Donna Brooks on April 10, 2015
  • I, too, fall in the "shy to try" category. But these "Gem" look like an excellent way to learn, since some seem fairly simple while others look quite intricate. The fabrics are beautiful, also.

    Susan Conner on April 10, 2015
  • I like the bright colors.

    Nan Brown on April 10, 2015
  • These patterns are great to learn paper piecing and to use up scraps in your collection. The batiks would be lovely also in this collection of patterns.

    —Claire Orr on April 10, 2015
  • I have paper pieced to achieve perfection plus, some jewel tone quilts turned out awesome, only because of paper accu racy. Taks more time, well worth it

    —Rita on April 10, 2015
  • The small quilt patterns, and the batiks would all be wonderful to use to learn paper piecing.
    Thank you.

    —Claire Orr on April 10, 2015
  • Practice a little. Will do it when I have to do a group project.

    —sew happy on April 10, 2015
  • Paper piecing….. just the thought of it makes me scared! i have a book on English Paper Piecing & it came with a load of very tiny paper pieces…. not had a go yet but i will do…. i’m not really a hand sewer but need to get out of my comfort zone, which is usually 12 inches in front of my machine! Love the small quilts less daunting than a huge quilt.

    —Suzanne Keal on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve paper pieced 2 small projects, a table runner and a small wall hanging. I found it so easy I wouldn’t hesitate to do another paper pieced project — even a large one. I love the accuracy.

    —Theresa on April 10, 2015
  • Paper piecing sounds like another one of the many ideas for projects I’d rather be working on….I hope I get the chance to try it!

    —Melanie on April 10, 2015
  • Help! I’m running out of space, so I need to downsize…my quilts that is :o) Looks to be the perfect book for me I’ve lusted over paper pieced quilts for their beauty and accuracy. Time to try?
    Thanks in advance, Jacqui in Australia.

    —Jacqui on April 10, 2015
  • I love the precision of paper piecing, it allows me to try more intricate patterns with success.

    —Glenna Denman on April 10, 2015
  • I’ve only tried paper-piecing once, so I’m not very practiced at it.

    —Jeanie B on April 10, 2015
  • I became a PP fanatic the very first time I tried it and my obsession keeps on growing. Putting this technique to work in a mini would be heaven! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Donna McA on April 10, 2015
  • practiced a lot.

    Nancy M. on April 10, 2015
  • I have made several projects using paper pieced blocks. The first paper pieced block I made was a dragonfly I designed myself.

    —Julie B on April 10, 2015
  • I have practiced with some small paper pieced blocks; but that is the extent of it for me. Would love to make some of these quilts for my table stand. Those batiks are so pretty and just what I need for a little spring quilt.

    —Nancy on April 10, 2015
  • I love paper piecing. Once you try it and practice a little it becomes easy. And those marvelous matching points! I have made several paper pieced quilts. Everything from small to king size bed quilt. I am making a small quilt now and am frustrated that I can not get points matched. So paper piecing ones would be fabulous! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Cindy Freshley on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a little — and eager to practice a lot more!

    —Cynthia on April 10, 2015
  • Sounds like some nice projects to try.

    —PJH on April 10, 2015
  • Never tried but want tp

    —barbara woods on April 10, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot and have learned to enjoy it. To me, completing a paper pieced block is like solving a puzzle, very satisfying.

    —LIZ DiCrescenzo on April 10, 2015
  • I love foundation piecing. Being dyslexic, working in reverse suits my brain function perfectly. I also love the accuracy it provides which suits my pedantic perfectionist personality! Would be delighted to win this prize but my track record is not encouraging in this regard, but have to be in it to win it. Fingers crossed and thanks for the chance.

    Deborah on April 10, 2015
  • Practiced a little

    —Jami Harwood on April 10, 2015

    —Joni on April 10, 2015
  • I have tried a couple of times. Still a work in progress. Very slow progress

    Caroline Rohrer on April 10, 2015
  • I love the challenge of paper piecing. I need more practice putting those fun colors & prints together.

    —Marie on April 10, 2015
  • I have never done paper piecing but I would like to try it. When I was a little girl, we had a neighbor who came across the Oregon Trail when she was just 12 years old. I would watch her make beautiful quilts using paper piecing. She would use the thin cardboard from old cereal boxes and sometimes just old news papers. She quilted mostly using cottons and would sometimes use the silk from old ties. I always hoped she would make a quilt for me, but she had many grand kids and great grand kids and she wanted to make one for each of them before she passed.

    —Lori B. on April 10, 2015
  • Finally after quilting for years I have taken the plunge to learn paper piecing! Never thought that I could do it!Thanks for the inspiration!

    Joy Cheek on April 10, 2015
  • Definitely shy to try! I want to try this but just have not got the umph yet! It is on my to do list!

    —Sherry Fram on April 10, 2015
  • I have done a little but it was the same block done over and over. This looks like a lot more fun!

    —Dar W on April 10, 2015
  • I have done a little pp but these quilts really look like they would be fun! Also this is a great way to make some of those patterns that have been on my list without taking a lot of time and fabric needed for a bed quilt.

    —Kathy Stoick on April 10, 2015
  • I love paper piecing but have only practiced a little

    —Elayne Ercanbrack on April 10, 2015
  • I have done a few projects with paper piecing.

    —Laura B. on April 10, 2015
  • It seems so silly: I’m excited to try, but I haven’t yet. What is up with that?

    —Beth T. on April 10, 2015
  • Only done a small amount but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed it

    —sunnybec on April 10, 2015
  • Love the little pieces and what a wonderful and exact designe you have when finished. Cool book……

    Carolyn on April 11, 2015
  • Practiced a little and love it! Piecing a quilt pattern called The First Snow and it is a challenge, but the technique keeps drawing me back.

    —Vickie Skinner on April 11, 2015
  • I have recently started my first foundation paper piecing project and I’m hooked. It’s incredible how preceise the piecing turns out. Thanks for the chance!

    —Barbara on April 11, 2015
  • Shy to try is me, but if I win I promise to give it a go.

    —Tammy in NC on April 11, 2015

    —Judy C in NC on April 11, 2015
  • Years and years ago when i first started quilting, I was enamored of little quilts and made a lot of them. I fell away from them and concentrated on large quilts and wearable art. This book has peaked my interest again. I feel an compelling urge to go mini (again)!

    —Marlene Clausen on April 11, 2015
  • shy to try, it’s on the list but not at the top. Thanks.

    —Mom C on April 11, 2015
  • I have been shy to try. However, I’ll be vacationing with my cousin who loves to paper-piece this summer. I’m putting "learn to paper-piece" on my what I did on my summer vacation list.

    —Kathy Renz on April 11, 2015
  • I love to do PP because you can get such accurate angles and shapes. New York Beauty blocks are great to do with this technique. I like to make my HST this way, too. The squares come out perfectly!

    —Christine on April 11, 2015
  • I’ve practiced a little with paper-piecing. I like the sharp points you can get.

    —Chris on April 11, 2015
  • I have tried it once or twice. I’m still learning to minimize my fabric loss.

    Hi Kathie, you can find a great tip for minimizing fabric loss in the post. Hope it helps! –Jenny

    —Kathie L on April 11, 2015
  • I love paper-piecing or foundation piecing (as I learned it as) and was able to learn from the "master" herself – Judy Niemeyer! Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Terri in BC on April 11, 2015
  • It looks like so much fun and a great book! I’ve never tried your papers before either so I hope I get a chance! Thanks.

    —Jeanne Serven on April 11, 2015
  • I can’t say that I’ve "pieced to perfection", but I’ve done enough to be comfortable with it. And to really enjoy it!

    —Pearl on April 11, 2015
  • I have done paper piecing when I first started quilting. I would like to get back into it again.

    —Dorothy Van Pelt on April 11, 2015
  • I’d say I am an ignorant beginner. My second paper pieced project was an eagle…WAY over my head…but it turned out okay and the person who received it loved it.

    Joy Paull on April 11, 2015
  • I’ve practiced enough to feel comfortable doing paper piecing. I think the only thing that has kept me from doing an entire paper pieced quilt is the time it takes. But because the results are always sooo spectacular, I’m hopeful that I’ll do one eventually no matter how long it takes!

    —Carol Gearey on April 11, 2015
  • I’ve practiced paper pieces on and off, but have never made a complete quilt. Still a little put off by the paper removal chore. Would love to be entered in your contest.

    —Mimi F. on April 11, 2015
  • I have done a little paper piecing and I do like it a lot. These "little gems" would be perfect for me. If I don’t win, I will probably still buy the book. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Duane Wiley on April 11, 2015
  • I have been reading about paper piecing but I haven’t tried it yet…

    —Dian on April 11, 2015
  • I have practiced a lot and now enjoy paper piecing. When I first tried it, I was so frustrated, I either had pieces upside-down, or incorrectly lined up. The projects in the book, look like a lot of fun.

    —Edith Gorzo on April 11, 2015
  • I’m a novice at paper piecing, but love little quilts. I’m looking forward to practicing on little quilts☺️

    —Lynn Manchester on April 11, 2015
  • Hi there,
    I am between practiced a lot and perfection, having done many, many paper-pieced projects. In fact, I prefer them as the accuracy of long, skinny points is almost effortless!
    Thanks!
    Quilty Huggs,
    Jacqueline

    —Suzanne Beringer on April 11, 2015
  • Am pretty shy to try it although I bought a small pattern with some paper piecing pictures. Am going to try it again!!!

    —Barbara Rex on April 11, 2015

    —Linda Cartwright on April 13, 2015
  • My dear mother-in-law inspired me to try different types of needle arts, including quilting. Because of her, hand-quilting is one of my favorite things to do. She liked to paper piece and gave me block she paper pieced along with a pattern for the rest of the blocks. We live far away and never got to working on it together. She passed away in January of this year, I have the block but not the know-how. I would love to honor my mother-in-law by learning to paper piece. Her name is Ethel and I think about her every time I sit down at my sewing machine.

    —Susan on April 13, 2015
  • I haven’t ever tried paper piecing, but I’ve read some blogs about it.
    Thanks.

    —Peggy Gibbs on April 13, 2015
  • I enjoy paper piecing quite often.

    —Janice on April 13, 2015
  • Oh my gosh, I adore paper piecing. Especially after I found Peggy Martin’s book "Quick Strip Paper Piecing" and her Craftsy class. It’s so fast and easy, just strips, no cutting patches for patches. I get into a rhythm and can’t stop!
    It’s my favorite thing. But I haven’t done a whole quilt only paper-piecing though, so a mini would be fun.

    —Tracie Dugdell on April 14, 2015
  • I am SO interested in this book … I LOVE mini quilts, and these ALL look so tempting. Think I’ll have to count my pennies … much easier than counting my fabric! Love to paper piece … been dabbling in it for years! Thanks!

    —Gina on April 14, 2015
  • Definately shy to try.. I find paper piecing very intimidating, though I would love to learn. There are endless possibilities when ising this technique. I’m bound to break down and give it a go one of these days.

    —Janna on April 14, 2015
  • I practiced a little then I was asked to help with my guild’s opportunity quilt – by creating 1 of 9 feather stars. I learned a new method of paper piecing and a few tips along the way.

    kbo on April 14, 2015
  • I bought a kit quiteawhile ago but was afraid to start it and maybe ruin it. Now, maybe I would try it with all the hints. Thanks!

    —Nancy Hilderbrand on April 15, 2015
  • I have a love/hate relationship with paperpiecing. Love the precision but I am intimidated often by the many pieces. But won’t give up on trying. Love the result.

    —Jos on April 15, 2015
  • My first paper piecing several years ago was in a class with an excellent teacher. It was the best way for me to start, and took the mystery out of the process. Since then I have done a few other paper pieced projects. Several years ago when I decided to do an on-point layout for a 12-month BOM I used the leftover fabrics to paper piece a block for the middle.

    —Jane on April 15, 2015
  • I’m a practiced a little paper piecer. Sure am tempted to practice some more with these cute quilts.

    —Laura on April 15, 2015
