Paper Piecing made easy: by the printed numbers

Pat made this one easily enough:  She says....after she finally finished her first house the remaining ones in the neighborhood were constructed in record time! 

 And Linda's paper pieced wall hanging is amazing!

Elaine decided a couple of years ago that we should make these paper pieced Christmas tree blocks and give them to 12 of our best friends as door prizes:  Here's her Christmas tree.  It was a Christmas tree lot of piecing....but we love her anyway! 

And Dorothy's vibrant paper pieced birdhouse ~ The black border just makes these bright colors come to life.  Dorothy brought this pattern with her from Florida and continues to share it with her Louisiana friends.  We are birders too! 

And me and Mr. Rooster just got along beautifully once I figured out what was suppose to be background and what was rooster!  From American Patchwork & Quilting April 2001. 

I have another paper piecing project up my sleeve.  Piece By Number has paper pieced patterns to love.  I'm especially intrigued by the Colorwheel  Circle of Geese blocks....a free pattern PDF download.

And Christina at The Sometimes Crafter has given us a fabulous paper piecing tutorial on her blog.  Then we can hop on over to the flying geese quilts and blocks Flickr photo  group for even more paper pieced eye candy.
