    I probably should have squared it up but I was just playing to see if I could figure it out.

    You are going to love this!! I recommend using the freezer paper method. It is not as prevalent, but no tearing the paper off. It is the only way I paper piece.

    I am a big fan of freezer paper method as well. But some pp patterns don't adapt well to it. Specifically ones that have really itsy bitsy pieces.
