    ReplyDelete
  55. I like kitchen-themed blocks, like a mixer or some foods. They'd be cute to use in making a hotpad.

  56. I wish more paper pieced patterns not only included the seam allowance on the outside of the block, but didn't try to cram so many pieces on one sheet of paper so that I can include extra to square up with. I like the stability of the paper all the way around. :0)
