    I made these quite a while ago and have them around my sewing room...did the string piecing on 3" wide adding machine paper then cut the pattern pieces from that

    They are all great! My favorites are the pinwheel quilt and the valance. Nice job. Thanks for the tip about the adding machine paper. I hadn't hear that one before.
