I also signed up for a paper piecing class! Tuesday evening, I took my big bag 'o quilting supplies and spent a couple of hours learning the art of paper piecing.
The block is not a very complex one, so easy to learn. I am not sure it will be a favorite, but a good technique to have in the bag of tricks, I suppose.
Since the fabrics are quite different, I will have to think of something to use these blocks individually, I suppose.
Maybe everyone will get hot pan holders for Christmas this year!
