Lesson Learned!

Well, there is a first time for everything! I was very nervous about making this block for one of my bee mates. So nervous about the actual foundation paper piecing process that I forgot rule number one!

When I printed the pattern, I swear I chose 'actual size' or '100%', but obviously, I did not! This block should have been 8.5" and instead, it is 8". Why? I went back and measured the little one inch block on the print out and guess what? It is only 7/8".

No worries! Lesson learned and now I have a random block for a rug mug or something. I am off to start over! More to come when I get the block remade!

Happy Stitching!!

A New Adventure!

Foundation Paper Piecing - Do you love it or hate it? I always thought it was too much work, so I never tried it. If it were not for my Gridster Bee friends, I may never have ventured into this arena. What did I find? I really like it! I can't say I love it yet! I am just starting this adventure and it seems like with this book by Elizabeth Dackson, that I may have a chance to move toward loving it! Let's get stitching!
