Paper piecing challenge

I am rewarding myself with a new project to work on, but I wanted to challenge myself to do something outside of my comfort zone.  I've chosen a challenging paper pieced project.

I've done plenty of paper piecing, but only in small projects and never in a project that will end up round - I hope.  This round quilt is called Shazam, and I'm using bright batiks with a black background.  The center and the 1st ring of 5 are pieced and ready to join together.


  1. This looks like fun! I bet I know why you are playing with circles. ;)

  2. Looking forward to seeing the front of the circles.

    Paper-piecing is NOT something I enjoy.

  3. I love circles and your piece looks wonderful! Thanks for showing the back with the paper still attached. It really shows just how intricate this paper piecing is.

  4. Wow... this looks like great fun! Can't wait to see more.
