Learn Better with Video? How to Paper Piece on YouTube

by Kim on September 15, 2009

Watch the video on how to paper-piece! You’ll see the same step-by-steps that are included in the paper download version of this tutorial, but you’ll now see it on video! Have fun trying something new!

**TIP for watching video: If the video stops every few seconds, that is ok. Let it cycle through once (you can even turn the volume down so you don’t hear it again and again!) and then go back and hit the PLAY button again. Once it has cycled through the first time, you’ll be able to watch it again without interruption.

*Note: The very end of the video got cut off, but we demonstrated how cut the block to the correct size and how to tear off the pattern once it is completed.  Step-by-step photo instructions for this are included in the download version at www.YouCanMakeThis.com or www.YouCanQuiltThis.com.

So now the question is….Who is going to give this paper-piecing project a try??

Loved the video, where did you get the pumpkin paper piecing pattern? I looked on “You can Quilt This” but did not find it! Help

The pumpkin pattern should be available later today or tomorrow over at YCQT. Thanks!

Wow! Thank you so much for doing this video! I have seen paper piecing in books before, and in the tutorial, but it looks so much easier now having seen this video! I am just a beginner in quilting, I don’t even know really what I am doing…but I think I could do this very easily! :) Thank you for putting that together!

This is a great video. I wish I could have seen her finish the entire design, but that’s not going to stop me from trying it.
