    Default At last!!! How many pieces?

    I posted a month ago - I can't believe it was that long - about my problems with paper-piecing which I hadn't attempted before ever. Not realising how complicated it was I now realise I started with something that was pretty difficult but I had some really good suggestions from the forum and thought you'd like to see the result even with all it's faults See if you can guess how many pieces went into it - couldn't resist counting and I was surprised. No prizes for the best guess but many thanks for all the help and suggestions

    Forgot to say - it is for a CAT who tends to sit on the top edge of an armchair. Better to damage my 'anti-macassar' than the actual chair!!

    Awesome! Your cat will love it. I got tired of counting pieces, so I'll guess 172.

    Nice job - paper piecing may be more difficult and time consuming - but the end results are fantastic. Not even going to try to count!!

    I love your kitty. I like the accuracy paper piecing but don't do a lot of it because it makes my brain think too much. I would guess maybe 100 pieces.

    Well, you are correct. You did not pick an easy pattern for your first try at paper piecing. Kudos for sticking with it - that turned out great! I would guess somewhere in the range of 50 pieces.

    I've never tried paper piecing. I haven't mastered a straight line yet! My guess is 70

    The only paper piecing I've done is a string quilt using M*'s 10" papers. It's no fun tearing off the paper. Your cat turned out great! I have no clue how many pieces.
