I found this paper piecing probject and it's caught my attention.  This blogger has invited people from all over the world to join her in making one 3" block per day over 365 days plus the 366th block a bit larger for Leap Year (2012 is a leap year).  Each 3" block will be a little house made from scraps.  You decide how you would like to make your blocks and the timeframe in making them, it's all up to you!  Please post your progress and if possible, share a picture....we love seeing pictures at QATW!!!

I bookmarked it. I have a few goals this year, this could go under the stashbusting goal.

Yay!  It looks like there are a few of us interested in taking on this daily challenge throughout 2012! 

I have never paperpieced before and I made a sample block last night with brainpower and just thinking it through.  I think it turned out useable...lol.  These are tiny pieces and make adorable tiny blocks!  I'm going to search online for pp techniques to see if I can get some tips.  If any of you know of some good sources or want to share your techniques, please do....thanks!!

I might make these - I'd like to do them in 6" PP blocks.  I like the sample quilt.  What a great scrap busting quilt!

Count me in.  I'd prefer to work with the 6" houses (either PP or RC). Those 3-inchers are intimidating to me, but would work for a dog house or two.  I'll start this sew-along once I finish 2 UFOs in 2012.

Yay!  More stashbusting!  Thank you GG, for re-working the house pattern.

Okay, yes I am doing this and I am going to do the 3" size. I am starting now. If for some reason I don't get any made before the first, I will let you know and change it to starting after 2 finishes. I believe I'll be doing the pp method, but will know better once I make a few.

Okay, I'm actually starting some houses NOW. I decided to make some to go as a border for a quilt top I'd like to finish SOON.

 I'm new to paper piecing too.  I was going to make 3" houses but I've changed my mind and I'll make 4" houses over the year.  I do plan on making 366 of these houses and I'll fill the quilt top with houses and then use the remainder of the houses on the backside; with 366 houses, I can still label it my 2012 Leap Year Quilt.

Here's a YouTube link that I've found helpful to start me out with concepts of paper piecing:

Good luck!

Hi House Builders!  Just think, no hammer and nails, just your sewing machine and fabric..... how perfect is that for building houses!!

I'm still definitely in the learning curve of building my houses and although I've completed 4 of them, each took me over an hour to make.  In looking at the positive side of my time spent building each house, I am teaching my "Abby Normal" brain how to paperpiece! 

I encourage you to keep building and keep learning this technique if it's new to you!  You can do it!!

Building house 9 today, hoping to get another one or two done later tonight.  My DD Connie and her fiance are taking me out to dinner at the Outback in a little while, cause it's my Birthday, lol!  I really didn't want to have another birthday, but didn't like the alternative either, lol!  Pam

These are so adorable!  I'm going to have to join in on this at some point, after a couple of finishes I suppose.  I know I will do PP, but not sure yet if I will do 4" or 5".  I just love these, and have lots of plans!  May have to play around with one, then will commit to a size.

Thanks!

Karen

I can't seem to get caught up on my houses either, I try to do 2 or 3 a day, but on Rogers days off, I don't get much sewing done.  He was off the last 2 days and I did manage to get one done each of those days, so at least I didn't get further behind.  Hoping to do 2 today.  Maybe I'll be caught up by mid Feb.  Pam
