I have done it and always regret it. By the time I get to the quilt, I have changed my mind about a pattern, or could use one of the fabrics for something else. Besides which, even after quilting...

Yes, paper piecing gives you finished blocks that are straight and even - mine would sometimes get sort of wonky when I wasn't going for that. I also do log cabin blocks on a muslin backing and cut...
