Cats and Dogs - Part 2

I got 4 dogs paper pieced this weekend for our group trade in Sep. This leaves me 4 more dogs and 8 cats that have to get finished for the second Monday of that month. Paper piecing is still somewhat strange to me and the best way to describe it is it's like sewing backwards. I do like some of the effects you can get with this technique and I suspect that with lots of practice you do get better at it. But at this point it does take a fair bit of time to get things done.

Having only paper pieced once, I can honestly say yours look great!

Your dogs look great! Love your fabrics! I love paper piecing. You can do really small things and they will turn out okay.

The little dogs are really nice, Vicki. I've never done paper piecing, but you make everything look easy and reallly good - so maybe I'll try it! Cheers, N
