February has arrived, and with it, the February block and recipe from the Sugar Block Club! I sadly couldn’t make it to the sew-along at Fancy Tiger this month, but that didn’t stop me from starting in on the block.
This month’s installment is called North Star, and is paper pieced. I have to admit, I have not done any paper piecing in years and years, so I did have to slow down and think…which is admittedly not always my strength.
If you look at the photo above, and at my finished block below, you can see proof of that fact!
Did you catch my
wee giant mistake?
Yup, I pieced my colors incorrectly- I intended the brown to the the center, but I mixed up my C & D sections and put the wrong colors on each. I decided it would be easier to redo the center block, and so I reversed my color plan.
Even WITH paper piecing, my seams aren’t (even close to) perfect. UGH.
Maybe when I have time to try again, for my other version of this quilt, I’ll do a bit better?
Linking up with Freshly Pieced Lee over at WIP Wednesday.
