    Well, I am jumping in with both feet! I'd just love to join y'all in doing this beautiful project. Paper piecing is kinda new to me as is the curve sewing but darn it, I'm in. Have been working on "block 0" and noticed my one inch size is a bit smaller than an inch. I'm in a tizzy as to whether I should start over again...... Hmmm, will figure this out soon.

    It will be fine as long as when you print off the other blocks the one inch size is the same as on block 0. Your final project will be slightly smaller, but your blocks will all fit together.

    A couple of you have said you've had issues with the curved piecing. I took some pictures I hope that they help. They show the stitched seam allowance, the clipping of the seam allowance, marking the pieces by folding in half (for alignment) and using LOTS of pins. I also will sometimes split the paper when needed for aligning the pieces together.

    WOW, those pictures are going to help a lot!

    (PS. Decided to re-print the couple of blocks to get my true inch so I am starting over )

    Oh you stitch the seam allowance! I never thought of that! When I'm ready to start these blocks I will try that. Thanks Kristen!

    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
