    The optional quilting design, where does that go? And where is the paper piece instructions in regard on how to do it? Lynette

      It’s the stitching pattern to use to quilt your pieced top, batting and back together.

    Love paper piecing but I’m not very good at it, hope this will help get better.

    I was so excited about this mystery paper pieced quilt with a madallion! But there is no madallion in the quilt, I am assuming the one you sent is to be in the center, but on instructions as to how to put it together? Very disappointed! Lynette

    Thank you so much for the designs. My quilt will really be a mystery quilt I have used 4 colours of fabrics omitted to read the instructions correctly and arrived at totally different blocks. I am delighted with the results and can see such a great potential for further quilts
    thank you again Toby for the designs.

    Thank you for this project. Paper Piecing skills greatly improved. The struggle was worth every “what?” because the results are stunningly beautiful. It makes much more sense and the steps are organized in my head. Bring ‘em on!

    Thank you for the paper piecing quilt challenge. I haven’t sewed many but have found this one challenging once I got started.

    I made the blocks, assembled the top, and picked paper from the seams. However little bits are still in the corners. I wondering what will happen to my white background fabric when I wash it. Does the printer ink leave little black spots?? Is there something (vinegar, ?) that can be added to the wash to prevent the ink from bleeding? Thank you!
