    I`m trying to find a very realistic paper pieced pattern for a human eye. Are there any out there? Thanks

  2. Darlene says:

    Hi do you have a video on your blocked pattern

    • admin says:

      Hello Darlene, sorry we don’t have a video tutorial for that one. But, if you are new at paper piecing, you can search for any paper piecing video to understand the basic method. Then you can try your hand at a simpler template given here, like a flying geese pattern. Then you can work on the star block pattern from the link given in the heading above the picture. You can get the template for the star from the pictures given on the site. Hope this works out.
