I make them in the order of Marti Michells templates. But after the first block I decided to use the Easy Angle Ruler. My blocks turn out more precise with that ruler.
I think I will use Martis templates later when it comes to cut fabric for paper piecing.
But right now I do the first blocks and they are easy.
Yes, fiddlesticks! I reached Paper Piecing. The good thing is that even the most complicated blocks turn out perfect. But only because you have to add lots of seamallowance. After the piecing you cut the allowance away. I couldn't use Martis templates for that - they are too small!
I already have the ruler 'Add enough'. It's wonderful for measuring squares, rectangles, triangles and even odd shapes and calculating the fabric for the piece. And very easy! During piecing you can use that ruler for the folding of the paper (instead of a postcard for example).
And I own the ruler 'Add-a-quarter', that's for cutting the seamallowance.
And you don't need anything else for Papier-Piecing, except paper!
I got the pdf-file for the blocks on the yahoo-group-site.
I made a tutorial how to use everything, the example is block 13.
These are the finished blocks:
