I've had one or two goes at foundation paper piecing which turned out pretty well, but I did get very confused with the upside down, back to front, thing. And I was not really sure if I was doing it properly. So I decided to join in with Katy's Foundation paper piecing for the terrified, and learn the right way of doing it.
The first week was a block called simple courthouse steps, and here's what the finished article looked like
I sort of lost the point of the courhouse steps by doing scrappy, and it was only by chance that I got 3/4 of the word kindness. Shame I didn't think about that. But it is only a practice.
And look how neat the back is!
I know this paper piecing drives some folk to distraction, but I actually really like it. I love the way everything turns out so neat and precise.
And I love tearing the paper off too!
There is a flickr group, so you can have a look, see how everyone else is getting along.
