    What cute quilts. I recently purchased a new box of fax paper rolls, six or eight rolls for .99 thinking they would work good for paper piecing. Now you have me inspired to start on it. Thanks! Sara

    I saw that hint on a site years ago and have never got around to doing it. Thanks for the reminder. Yours turned out great.
