  1. Hi Leila, I came across your feathered star, paper pieced and was wondering how to put the pieces together after they have been sewn. I'm new to paper piecing and although I can sew them, i'm a visual person and cannot always see how they are put together. If you could help me with this I would appreciate it, or if there is a tutorial on your blog spot that shows this I would appreciate you letting me know. Thanks Terry

  2. Hi Lelia, Thank you for your instructions on how to draw the templates for the Drunkards Path block. I had already ordered a pattern elsewhere and as it was a PDF pattern when I printed it out the size was not correct and I could not adjust my printer. In desperation good old Pinterest came to the rescue and I found your tutorial. It is brilliant thank you

  3. Dear Leila, I participated in your original SkillBuilder tutorial and will be forever grateful! I printed off each lesson as you posted it on your blog, and even after I'd made each blog, I continued to refer to the notes many times, and still have them in a binder. I put your blog on the sidebar of my blog so other people could discover you, but haven't visited you myself for quite some time due to all the other quilts going on in my life! But today I popped in to see if you are still around, and here you are! Full of great ideas, always an inspiration to this Aussie down under :-)
