I did one paper pieced melon shape yesterday. I have Karen Stone's book too and this quilt is in it. There are diagrams for the paper piecing in the book but not in the pattern. I used my Add a Quarter rulers for trimming the fabric.
I cut some corners of the blocks and more strips for the paper piecing while I watched a couple episodes of the Season 2 of Downton Abbey. I finally got it from the library. There are 102 on the list following me who want to see it.
