Quilt Retreat, Day 2

I'm off to a slow start today. I made another one-fourth of the paper-pieced block. Yesterday Susan commented that when she does paper-piecing, the fabric pieces seem to end up in the wrong place, which leads to seam ripping. Yep, that is my problem exactly! Well, I have a few more paper pieced blocks chosen and cut, so perhaps with practice I will do better and enjoy this technique more than I do right now.
I decided to alternate paper piecing with regular piecing, and here is another block!
Oops, I guess I am not much better with placement of blocks, am I! Get out the seam ripper and fix that lower block.
Back to work!

Well done! I'm enjoying seeing the blocks folks are making and yours are beautiful.

Did you enjoy the paper piecing? I like paper piecing but seldom do it for some unknown reason.

I'm Barbara Anne on-line.

Cheers!

I can't believe the detail in these blocks. So pretty. This is going to be a beautiful Christmas quilt.
