Paper Piecing...

So, I've been paper piecing with some of the fabric Jean Martha sent me...as much as it killed me to cut into them! I'm totally experimenting with paper piecing and wondering if I really love it. I think I do. The added time to bag making will take some getting used to.

This is a square I just made with a variety of fabrics.

Here is a diagonal pieced bag I'm working on. This could be the front. Or the back. It is up to you. Bobby wanted to add a strip that didn't match at all...so we went with yellow. I like it.

Here is the front/back of the same bag. This I just sewed pieces together and then cut to the same size.I really really like the yellow added to this.

This is a bag I just finished. I had mountains of this daisy fabric that I bought in Mangum, Oklahoma last summer and only bought it because it was mega cheap. Not the best reason to buy something. But I like how it turned out. I paper pieced a couple of squares then cut them up and reassembled for the center of the bag.

Here is the whole bag. Kinda retro fun.
