Four more to go! You'll be seeing a lot more of these particular fabrics as the quilt progresses. An unexpected benefit of using solid fabrics is that there is no wrong side, which makes the paper piecing even easier. I hope, though, that it does not make me sloppy once I progress to prints later in the quilt.
It's been really fun so far. The finished points have a satisfying weight to them, with the fairly thick Kaufman Kona Solid fabric, and the Ricky Tims Stable Stuff on the back. I've been using 1/4" seams too. The instructions call for 1/8" seams, but as a new paper piecer I just didn't feel comfortable with that. If I pay for it later, so be it.
Many people have also mentioned the somewhat frugal cutting instructions for the quilt. Because I was planning to use a wider seam allowance, I just measured the widths right off the template. I ended up adding 1/4" to the width, and about 1/2" to the length for these pieces - it may have been more for some of the others. I have lots of fabric, so I am not worried about running out!
