What size blocks were you thinking of making?
Yes, that is exactly what I ask myself - why do paper piecing if Iím going to pre-cut everything? Thank you for reminding me that the whole reason Iím interested in paper piecing is the accurate seams and triangles that are not cut off!

Iím planning on doing 8x8, 8x4, and 4x4 squares and rectangles.
