More quilting - what happened?

I've been making 4" teacup blocks for a block swap I'm hoping to join in, I haven't committed myself to it yet as I may not get them all made. I think I have to make 10 will have to check up on the rules later. Here's a pic of the 4 I've made so far -

They are paper or foundation pieced, a technique I used to hate and had given up on, I always got the fabric in the wrong place and was convinced I didn't have the brain for paper piecing. However, I had to do it for City & Guilds so I trawled the net then tried out every method I found, this is the one that worked for me http://www.quiltdesignnw.com/tips_p_piece.htm Now I have no problems with this technique and, dare I say it, I actually rather enjoy it:-)
