Janice tells us: My tip is to press after sewing EACH seam. I get all twitchy when I see someone sewing an entire block together without pressing even one seam!
Janice has great tutorials, amazing patterns, and writes often at her website Better Off Thread!
VISIT Janice’s article For a Step by Step for her block, she is awesome to do this for us!!
I highly recommend Carol Doak’s class on Paper Piecing. She is a master at it and is fun! She also has a lot of books on this, so if you like learning that way LOOK HERE
I bought this cute little set of trunks to put my Splendid Blocks in, it comes in a LOT Of colors! … I thought you might enjoy having them too..
I spotted this great FREE tutorial on pillows. We have lots of bonus blocks which are super fun, and you might want to make them into something, I think an adorable pillow is the answer!
This is a perfect block for some fun fabric.. I recently got some BEE Creative Fabric.. the word print would be very fun to do on the ‘X’ part!
