    I want to make a GFG, but I just can't seem to get it done the rite way. Is there a really easy tutorial that I can follow. Or can someone tell me exactly how to do it step by step. Thanks so much for the help.

    I have done them several times and have never paper pieced. I just sew the hexagons together. There is no trick to it that I know of.

    I'm making a scrappy one and I'm using cardstock for the templates.
    I put a hole in the middle of each template with a paper punch it helps to pop them out at the end.

    I wouldn't dream of cutting all those paper pieces...you all are awesome for doing your own! I purchase mine precut online. I used 1" sides. I also purchased precut 2 & 1/2" strips which I rotary cut to 2 & 1/2" squares. A quick start to my lifelong English Paper pieced GFG! Good luck.
