The first thing I ever paper pieced was the asterix block by Penny Layman so I was a little bit excited when I heard she was writing a book on paper piecing. I was not disappointed!
It is not only filled with fantastic blocks, but there is a great instruction section at the front. Since I first made that asterix block I have done a bit of paper piecing and I absolutely love it, but it is not something that comes naturally to me so I read through all the instructions and it is full of clear diagrams and excellent tips and tricks.

I have some beautiful saucepans I inherited from my Grandmother so as soon as I saw the saucepan block I knew I had to make it.
I enjoyed making it so much I made another.
I have plans to try a few more blocks from the book. The Paper Dress and Giraffe are at the top of the list.
