fusible web is not sticking to a piece: The fabric must be 100% cotton for
the glue in the fusible web to stick to it. Fabric with other than cotton in

hard to remove the paper off the fusible web from some pieces: A pin can
make it easier to lift the paper off. Poke the point of the needle under the

off. If this doesn't help then you could warm the piece with a warm iron and
then quickly lift the paper.

a bit smaller than the others. The main thing is to trim all the blocks to
the same size before starting the quilting process.
