  1. I just found them and they are all beautiful. I am going to try to do this one. I also love that they are paperpieced. Thank you.

  2. This is amazing. This is the first paper piecing pattern that has totally captured my attention. The designs are all so beautiful. Thank you for providing them! Now I have to go back and read through all your blog entries to see the rest of your work!

    1. If you click on the name of the block, it takes you to the post where the pattern is for that block is linked. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you! Thanks.

  3. I just completed making Block 6/Lollipop, making it into a table topper for my sister. I really like the way it turned out. Your instructions are very easy to follow. This was my first ever completed (pieced, quilted and bound) quilt project. You got me hooked! Thank you so much for posting this. It really does help newbies like me gain confidence. Now I want to make Block 1/Dahlia for my Mom.

    1. I am so happy to know you enjoyed it! I love paper piecing myself and so wanted to share the joy. I would love to see your table top. Do you think you could share a picture on my Facebook page ‘Patchwork of My Life’? All the best for the dahlia. That is a favourite block too.
