Beautiful! I love Carol Doaks way of PP. After using a few others methods, I love the way she tells you a rectangle to cut so I can precut the fabrics into kits on days I don't feel like sewing. That black sashing makes the quilt pop. Good choice.

Try the "fold the paper and sew along the fold" method that you never have to sew through the paper! Here's the link:
Works wonderfully!!
