    the above piece is 6"x7 1/2" before the borders. With the borders and binding, it is about 7 1/2"x9 1/2".
    Just nice for an '''anytime, any reason gift".

    You should always use very small stitches with paper piecing. An instructor once told me that if you tear the paper down the middle of the block and then tear it from the stitches, going left and right, the paper comes off much easier. I have been doing this for a while now, and I find it extremely easy. I just use regular copy paper and have not problem with it...... :wink: :) :)

    I used the stabilized paper and found it harder to tear than regular typing paper. I try to get the cheapest paper I can get and haven't had any problems. The key is really the small stitches and they are a pain to take out when you make a mistake.
