Thank God its done!

My row for Liz's Rowxrow at Quilting in Indiana is finally done! I hate paperpiecing, but I just fell in love with this candy cane pattern at http://quiltiger.homeip.net/ and had to use it for my row. I think she's going to have one terrific quilt when its all done, what a great row x row idea! This is why I hate paperpiecing, well one of the reasons, this is the pile of all the sewn pieces. Now how can a body tell if they're right? You can't until, like me, you sew a piece on backwards and have to rip out all of those tiny stitches. Or you start cutting out the paper pieces only to find you're short on one corner. That's why I like traditional piecing, you can normally see the mistakes as you make them, not surprise mistakes that sneak up on you!
Now I am waiting on next month's row....I'm sure more paperpiecing is in my future from some of the fabulous pics already posted as site...and I am afraid!

That candy cane block is too cool -- I went right over and checked it out. Thanks for the great link, they have some really neat patterns!
