    • This is a good tutorial, but Liz does a great Class on Flying Geese. Paper piecing for me is tedious, time consuming, and just not fun, but Thanks for Sharing!:)

  2. Just finished piecing Chasing Chevrons, I like to score the lines on the paper pattern from the right side. It makes it easy to fold pattern from wrong side. I also like the rulers that have a 1/4″ ridge to cut seam allowances.
