I joined my first online Bee – Swarm Lily Pad 2017. January’s block was a good challenge for me. It has lots of pieces and surprisingly went together quickly. It was Blossom Heart Quilts – Ripples When I saw the directions and pieces, it was a bit intimidated, but I did it.
Next up was February, I was the Queen. So we know that it would be a simple block. I picked Blossom Heart Quilts-Homebase.
Now onto the scary part, March. Our Queen picked a paper piecing block, Blossom Heart Quilts – Wanta-Fanta. I knew someone would pick paper piecing. So I started.
Here are the snowballs pieces with one of the X units. None of the seams in the X unit matched, not even close. I thought I followed each direction so carefully, but no luck. Second try wasn’t much better.
Yesterday was gonna be my day. Either third strike and I’m out or third time was a charm. I think it worked are pretty good. A bit off on some of the X unit seams, but good to go.
Paper piecing was on my list of things to try in 2017, so I can say I tried. I think I’ll be doing some others. They will be for myself, then I won’t be as concerned with perfect matches.
