How to Paper Piece

Here is a paper-piecing video tutorial for you! I'm walking you through the steps I use to have a successful paper pieced block. I don't claim to be an expert -- there are MANY ways to paper piece, but these are the steps I use, and they work for me.

The block I'm using I drew in EQ8, so feel free to use it.

The layout is from twisting and turning the blocks till I liked the end result. Play with it and make it your own! YAY!

Here is the block PDF - print at 100% (NO SCALING).

Thanks for tagging me on IG or FB (@sewhungryhippie) and sharing this post. I really appreciate every one of you.

The complete video is on my YouTube channel, in case it doesn't play for you here. Thanks for subscribing!
