    Well, I did my first paper pieced block. I chose Gidget since she seemed the easiest to make and I used Cassandra’s tut as well. Thank you so much for your generosity. I’m working on the maker mat. I will try and share when it’s complete. Again thanks!

    Nicole I am new at this. You had sent me an email to my reply. Here is my question that might help others. Can I make the block bigger than 5″ and it still be okay? I want to say yes but I haven’t done this before. I’m gathering supplies – can’t wait to make them. I figure I should do these before I try the one I bought from you. It looks like I need experience for it. lol

      Hey Paula! Short answer, yes. You can reduce or enlarge any pattern. The only thing that will change and affect measurements is the outer 1/4″ seam allowance. It will be larger than needed when you blow up a pattern. So, in that case, you would simple trim using a 1/4 guide on a quilters ruler rather than using the dotted seam allowance line on the pattern. I hope this helps!

    These are wonderful patterns! Just made 2 of each one. No 2 alike. Thank you for sharing. Wish I could share a picture with you. Not sure how. Audrey

    A match of blood and violence, the mixture of fun and also a slightly macabre feeling. Happy Wheels 2 https://happywheels2.club/ can be a game where you choose lavish vehicles, in the bike to a wheel chair and send the by way of a chaotic track where the awkward motorist will attempt to desperately escape mutilation, decapitation and departure, you can also eject the character by the car or truck.

    Thank you so much for the free patterns! Hope to get to use them before long. Love the hummingbirds and the butterflies to begin my journey with FPP. Again thanks
