Julia – Eclectic Electricity
Julia says: Expect the unexpected. Always plan for more time than you think you need to finish the block. Finishing early is way better than finishing late. Don’t try to “re-use” foundation paper if you copied the wrong thing onto it. Suck it up and use a new sheet. The paper piecing cutting instructions are about ¼” larger than needed, I’m finding them to be very generous which is good because I’m not going to have to worry about them being too small.
Kelli – Civil War Reproduction
Kelli says: For me, this one created less anxiety when I saw I could paper piece. If you are scared of half square triangles or they just don’t always turn out (like mine), paper piecing is a great way to go. Also, to get this block to lay flat, press the snot out of it! (A little bit of water or steam never hurts either!
