OK I cheated..... went ahead.
Wanted to paper piece. I wanted to practise it. So when I found out that October's Crafty Block of the month 2012 was paper piecing I did one right away. It was one that I saw on Amy Gibson's site previously (sorry I don't know the address). I liked it there, and I wanted to do one. So it's done. I'm still not great with paper piecing, I waste too much fabric, but with more fabric then needed, I make sure that I cover the area that needs covering. So that's the purpose.
See for yourself. Love the colours. It's on my quilted table top.
