I signed up earlier this month for the mini quilt swap which gave me the idea of paper piecing so I took to Pinterest. I ended up coming up with a lot of ideas and decided to do a test run of a goose and goslings one that I came across before starting my block for the mini quilt swap. It took me the weekend to do it but I think it came out alright, now I need to figure out what to do with it lol. Maybe a larger quilt! The pattern was easy to follow using 2" finished squares with each square being paper pieced. Really a neat concept! A LOT of sewing though. The one I did for the mini quilt swap was also of bird like nature. Hopefully it will arrive to my partner soon!

That's great! Would it make a good cushion cover or is it too large for that? We have really big patchwork cushions for reading in bed that are filled with chipfoam so they can be easily fluffed up, I love them.
I too am trying paper piecing for the first time for that swap. It seems like a fun technique once you get past the bafflement of doing things sort of backwards. Did you find it challenging to wrap your head around the reverse order thing?

I was okay for the reverse order but sometimes lining up the material to fit when it was flipped back the other way was a challenge. Its approx. 32"x32"

Really nice job; when I saw the thumbnail image on Craftster's main page, I thought it was a painting!  I don't know jack about quilting, but I can still tell that a lot of time and effort went into creating this geese family on water scene.  I'm sure the one you did for the swap will be equally impressive too.

Wow. I've never tried paper piecing - it seems pretty intimidating to me! Great job on your first attempt - it looks fantastic!
