    I haven't tried it yet, still working on 2 many ufp (unfinished projects)but think I will try it on some scrap material, so when I am ready to do the quilt, I will know how to do it. Thanks again. I love learning new things.

    Rhonda, I did it, I did it. I used the small template for the 1 1/2" block and it worked perfectly. Thank you for going to all this trouble to make it easier for us. And yes, I agree with you that it takes longer but I can do it. The only hard(?) part was keeping that 1 1/2" template fm. moving at the last. Love the cutie in your avatar

    :D

    Your Wing Block looks great! I'm glad it works for you. I am discontinueing sending out the 30 degree templates and using the paper template methods instead. So noone has to worry about cutting the degree line.

    Great idea, that is how I am going to do mine, with pp. I plan to get started making a quilt for my granddaughter, with the wings blocks as butterflies and then some fish, etc.

    This is NOT paper piecing. It is more like a clothes pattern. You don't sew fabric onto the paper you instead use the paper to cut out the right size and shape pieces. Then sew the fabric pieces together so you can cut out a square for the wings block.
