I like paper piecing. For those that haven't come across it before, paper piecing is a technique that involves sewing pieces of fabric to a pattern that is printed on paper. The order of the fabric sewn is decided by following a numerical sequence. So basically you sew bits of fabric to the paper starting at number 1 and then continuing in numerical order until
there are no more numbers!

There are quite a few sites offering free paper pieced patterns if you'd like to have a go. The only down side to paper piecing is that it uses more fabric than regular piecing (when I do it that is!). It is great for using up scraps.
