The tutorial is wonderful, great pictures and easy to follow instructions. I hope it is ok to add my 1/2 cents worth of experience and tips to you. Instead of a post card I cut a strip of plastic template mateial about two inches wide and use this to support my fold line. If you have it use the non meling kind….i did not and any template plastic will work. I also skip the starch step. But am usually a starcher.
Also I like to us a use a light box and retrace my lines on to the side I will be sewing. Just be sure and use a different color pencil or marker as one can easily sew to the wrong side. PS iIam in the final stages of paper piecing a fish on a platter with about 300 pieces! I can sure place, press, fold and cut in my sleep! Will send you a pic if you like. I should finish all but the quilting this week. shelly beth
Great tutorial, Allison. I wish that I would have had something as good when I taught myself to paper piece years ago. My biggest mistake in paper piecing results in the wrong side of the fabric showing. I still screw that up sometimes.
Your blocks are beautiful!
