Margaret, I am SO sorry these blocks are so late!
I have never paper-pieced before, and I'm not going to lie, I was a bit scared. But, it was not so bad after all. The only problem I had was getting the paper off the back. It probably would have been easier if my stitches had been smaller, but my machine only has three stitch length settings, so I had to just do the best I could.
I am going to do my best to get started on the the maze block for Jessica.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
