I recently heard about paper piecing and even though I'm a complete complete at all types of quilting, I am ambitious.  I came across http://sewhooked.org/ and I just had to try the Hufflepuff paper pieced pattern.  So, I tried it and it took me 3 hours from start to finish (I know it's an incredibly long time for one block but don't forget, I'm a newbie) and it came out a little wonky.  There are two pieces that weren't big enough so there are missing spaces, but here it is-

I know it's not a complete project but I'm hoping that one day it will be.  I want to do a Harry Potter themed quilt for my mom featuring Draco and Slytherin house.  If I can do this I'll be sure to post a finished project!

I'm very impressed that you took that on as a newbie.  I think it looks great.  Have fun with the rest of your quilt!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Wow! Very impressive, especially for your first paper piecing. I looked at the sewhooked website and those are some incredible pieces. Hopefully they are an inspiration for your quilt.

I'm late finding this, but it's awesome. Paper piecing scares me even more than normal quilting does!  Lips sealed

Also, I checked out that site and I have to say, I prefer your Hufflepuff square over theirs. Good work. Smiley

Very nice Smiley I'm new at quilting also, but I do't feel like starting with something like that

Thanks ladies.  I was a little intimidated but I thought I could figure it out!  I have a paper pieced quilt planned out in my mind... but now I just have to find time to put it together!
