    It’s a sixteenth note – if I remember right…? How fun, I never thought of music – I was thinking plants when I tried to make a pattern for this event. I learned a valuable lesson… it ain’t easy to design paper pieced patterns. Good job, Soma. I love it. Thank you for the free pattern. It’ll be a nice interlude. (Get it?)

    P.S. Happy Birthday – some day this month! If your birthday were today I bet you’d have gotten alot of gag gifts over the years. Anyway, 25 isn’t that bad a milestone.

    I know I am going to sound stupid but does anyone know about a tutorial to do the paper piecing? I am new to it and wanted to learn. I printed the musical note but kind of don’t know what to do next. I know I sew on the paper?

      Absolutely, and it does not sound stupid at all! I have a whole page about paper piecing right here on Sewhooked. You can get to both written and video tutorials, both mine and some of my favorites that are on other websites. Let me know how it goes!

      Paper piecing is my favorite technique and I couldn’t think of anything more fun than sharing the talent of so many great designers for my birthday month! 🙂
