I've actually had these blocks finished for a hot second, but keep forgetting to blog about them. Anywho, I had a really good time with these (for the most part!).
I've never done paper/foundation piecing before, and these were a really good introduction. I had a little bit of a hard time at first with the swirl block because I kept putting the prints and the background in the wrong spot. Seriously, like three times... you'd think I'd figure it out...
BUT, once I had that all straightened out, it came together pretty quickly, and I really like the process. I don't, however, like the mess of paper that happens when the back has to come off. But oh, well. I'll definitely be doing more paper piecing in the future!
I fussy cut a larger scale print for this block, instead of putting on the applique circles the pattern call for. I like the effect!
Here are the last two months worth of blocks on the design wall along with the blocks for the Sisters Ten BOM that I'm also doing this year. I like how different these projects are - it keeps it interesting!
