    Thank you for the precise demonstration. Much appreciated by this new quilter

    There is a lot of really good information on paper piecing here. However, on the one hand she talks of conserving fabric, but then she cuts practically in the middle of the fabric, wasting an enormous amount. I think it would be more consistent to show how one should position the fabric before cutting.

    Play stopped in the middle and cannot get it to work again - help and thanks

    I really enjoyed this video. I have paper pieced before but this method is so much clearer than stitching random shapes and then trimming them.

    Hi Marilyn - Thank you for your interest in National Quilter Circle and question about closed captioning. Currently, we do not offer closed captioning on our videos. However, we will pass along your suggestion to our development team. We appreciated member feedback and use it to help us improve our products. Thank you for your feedback

    a good tip for people who are doing this parallelagram is to remember that you need to stack your fabric with right side up at all times or you will end up with half going a different way to the other half.
