I would just like to explain a couple of things that are different in these paper pieceing patterns than in the normal patterns.
Beginners, don't worry, You can do this. I taught myself off the internet. It looks like a lot of steps, but in a couple minutes you'll be an old pro. Seriously, it only takes most people about 20 minutes to get the hang of this. Some a little more, some a little less!
After you have completed all the units in a section, iron them, with a real iron, no finger pressing here. Trim the edges with a ruler and rotary cutter. Now you sew them into the section. You can refer to the Unit Chart if you forgot or can't figure it out. IMPORTANT NOTE: The pattern pieces are printed out as a mirror image of the finished product, because you sew on the wrong side of that paper. On some patterns it doesn't matter, some it does.
Oh, one more thing. The funest part. When the block is all completed, you'll need to pull all the paper off the back. Your machine stitch should be set to one of the smallest setting, 18-20 stitches per inch. This perforates the paper and should make is easy to peel off the paper. Go slowly though, you wouldn't want to pull the stitches out! You also might need tweezers to get them out of the corners.
If you want more beginning instruction with a free learning project, try the paper piecing primer on this site. It is where I
learned to paper piece.
