Helpful paper-piecing hint #1 – Be sure to pull the fabric you just sewed onto the paper ALL THE WAY BACK before trimming the 1/4” seams cause if you don’t, you will cut into the fabric you just sewed where it doesn’t need cutting! Then you have to rip out the piece you mistakenly cut and sew on a new one. Voice of recent experience. Argh!
This is block #42 of the Just Takes Two internet sew along. It doesn’t have a formal name so I call it “Running Feet” because it looks like cartoon legs running really fast. I wonder what would say about me if this was a Rorschach inkblot test? Anyway, this block was easy to do because there weren’t really any little pieces in it.
I also made a checkerboard strip, about to make another, and then I will start on the “Buckeye Beauty” block which does have quite a few small pieces. I’ve already cut the fabrics and packaged them in a project bag so I’m good to go.
Sew long for now,
