    I have never done paper piecing. Seems you have to use a lot of paper. Can I just cut up the diagram and add a quarter inch seam allowance to each piece and then sew them together?

    Each quarter of this pattern should require only one sheet of paper. Each sheet of paper will have 3 sections - you can separate the sections and they already have the quarter inch seam allowance. If you have never done paper piecing, there are some good videos on youtube that you should watch first. Just search "paper piecing" on www.youtube.com
    and they will come up. Paper piecing is not hard, and once you get the "hang of it" you will love it! Good luck!

    Well, I have 3 out of my 4 done. Didn't sew at all yesterday- had a nasty bug .
    But hopefully will finish that one today, in between doing Christmas sewing that has to get done.
