Carol Doak Postcard Swap

I joined Carol Doak's postcard swap this summer. I have not done much paper piecing before, so this was a good way to get me to try it. Each participant had 3 swap partners to swap postcards with. The patterns I used were from a Carol Doak paper piecing book that included a CD. The CD contained the designs on it with the ability to scale them to the size needed. Just print them out on paper piecing paper and your ready to go. It was a bit challenging until I figured out where to place my fabric and stitch. I am sure if I did more of them I would be able to get them done much faster now. This is also a good way to use your scraps up and pass on a bit of cheer!
