Here is one of the finished pumpkins and the fall leaves to go with my pumpkins. Every time I do paper pieceing, I think "never again," but I always find something else that I like that's paper pieced and this pattern on my Quilt Wizard was no exception. So after tweaking it to my liking, I trudged forward and did the paper pieced pumpkins and once again after doing one said, "Never again!" and I still have 4 left to do. I did learn now to do freezer paper paper piecing once in a class, but it's all the same idea, ya know??!!
But it's good that we all have likes and dislikes in the quilting world because otherwise who would buy all the boatloads of notions and diverse array of fabrics? Who would try all the variety of techniques and actually prefer to do paper pieceing or applique (you know who you are, Sheryl!!) I know I prefer just plain old piecing and am happiest doing that, but find fun wandering into the forest of "other" techniques every now and then--just for fun and something to "blog" about!!!!
