Square in a square block – great starting point

Small log cabin blocks – scroll down for the pattern, and make it your own.

Dancing Stars Block and video tutorial (my quilt top is here, sadly still not quilted!)

Our favorite tools

Add a Quarter Ruler

28mm Rotary Cutter

Portable Cutting & Pressing Station

    Thanks for this podcast!! I LOVE paper piecing… but not just because of precision (which is a good thing but not essential to me since I am a beginner), but because you can find so many non-traditional blocks to make themed quilts! If anyone is interested in that, you should check http://www.fandominstitches.com/… there are tons of free paper piecing patterns from Harry Potter, Disney, Movies, Tv Series, Sports teams and much more! And there is a Help page with a lot of tutorials and resources for beginners to learn how to do it.
    Thanks for spreading the paper-piecing love :)
