Hi Michele, It's a fun block! Especially if you are new to paper piecing. I used to be so scared to try paper piecing but it's not as hard as I thought. I can't wait to try more paper piecing patterns. I would love to see your finished block so make sure to share on social media using the hashtag #agfquiltblockcollection

Hi Alyssa, I read though the instructions and for step 7, instead of sewing with each edge of the fabric lined up together they are asking you to scoot the raw edge of each side of the divider out about 1/2" I would use alot of pins to pin both sides of the divider to each side of your lining. Then it goes on to step 8 where you take the other side of your lining and do then same step basically encasing that raw edge deep into the side seams of your bucket organizer. I think that sewing it this way will keep your divider more stable in the center of your bucket organizer and will ensure that the raw edges are securely sewn into the side seams. I hope this helps! If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask! Have a great weekend, Melissa
