Stepping Forward

Paper-pieced blocks are great fun! I need to do one or two after I've done an applique block just to feel confident about how this whole project will turn out.

"This is "M-4, Stepping Stones", an advanced-level paper-pieced block. This one has 49 pieces, I believe, which means lots of little pieces of paper to tear out!

love your block - I hate paper piecing though and hand piece or applique all of my blocks. Don't you just love this quilt!

a lot of work. you are just doing one block though right?
49 pieces. I think a finished quilt of mine is about 49 pieces in all. great stuff here as always.

Gorgeous block ~ your colors are perfect for this block! This will be one *FANTASTIC* DJ quilt! Yikes on the 49 pieces though, I guess as tiny as they must be, paper piecing is the safest way to go!

I love the block and the fabrics. I've got to get into paper piecing.

I've been "stuck" on E-13 for days. I'd better get going or you'll be done with the whole quilt before I get another block done. ;)
