    Dear Sonja, Thank you so very much for this tutorial. I never knew that pattern piecing was so easy. I shall certainly give it a try.

    Thanks for the tute, Sonya! I have never done paper piecing and was wondering what everyone was on about. I guess now that I know, I’ll just have to try it out.

    Thank you for this tutorial – I’ve been trying to learn paper piecing – but reading it from a book leaves a lot to be desired. Thank you for the visual!
