Thank you! You demonstrated and explained it so well that you made it easy. I did have to grab my seam ripper once or twice. And... I did the left half then the right half which made it harder than I think it needed to be to put it together {lesson learned! haha}
patz in suffolk asked:
I wondered what "step down piecing" was! Well, now I know! It's very attractive and you've made a lovely quilt top!
gmhnQuilts answered:
Thank you. I guess it's when you only partially sew a block to a block and you don't work in rows. I'm not sure I completely understand what step down piecing IS, but that was the lesson name.... LOL
