I have had the fabrics for Stacey's block for what, six weeks, and was too intimidated to even approach it. Templates? I haven't quilted using a template in 20 years! So I tried it. And failed miserably! Then I converted the center block (the part set on point) into a paper pieced pattern and then, and ONLY then, could I tackle it! All I can say is "Whew! I'm glad that's done!"
