First Try On Paper Piecing


Since 1 year we are struggling with our printer, it was just not working. So last week we decided on a new one and yesterday it arrived. Got totally excited while unpacking, setting up was easy. And when I thought about what to print, I thought why not do some paper piecing. Have not done it since more than 2 years.

Everywhere on instagram I saw people piece “Circle of flyig geese”, so I downloaded the free pattern here. My printer worked like a charm. And with total excitement I got started. First 2 times was wrong fabric placement, but after this everything was great. On 3 of the 4 blocks I had a bit corner problems, so I just placed another background fabric over it. This block is really forgiving.

And here is now my full block. Totally love it and hope to finish it, into a pillow today. Cant wait to do more paper piecing in the near future.

  1. it looks great! I used this pattern a few weeks ago, and just like you I used a black background with a rainbow of geese!

  2. I admit I got a preview of your quilting of this block on Facebook this morning - this is going to be a stunning pillow! :)

  3. wow, I think it is awesome. I've downloaded the pattern, but that is as far as I gotten.

  4. Great job, I would never of guess this is your first attempt if you didn't say so!
