A big thanks to Deonn for teaching us about paper piecing.
She gave us great tips.

Following is the Circle of Geese block that Deonn showed
in her class. You can link to a tutorial slide show by linking

Deonn brought in some great examples of paper piecing made
by her and her daughters.

This is Debbie's quilt.

If you like more information you can go to Deonn's Blog for a tutorial
on paper piecing.
She also recommended several good websites for paper piecing patterns:
piece by number, quilters cache and Carol Doak.
You can just click on one of these names and it
will take you to that website from here.
Thanks Deonn!!!

You can also catch Deonn on Saturday, March 12 at Seasons of Home.
She will be doing an open house that day (from 2:00 - 5:00 pm). She will also be
teaching some classes throughout the month. You can
