Got a package from my Red and Aqua Bee 2 in the mail from Canada!
(original pattern here ~ she enlarged hers to make a 16.5 inch block)
I have NEVER done a quilt block quite this COMPLICATED before!
A few deep breaths were taken and I gathered my wits about me
(and courage ~ it is a bit worrisome when the fabric is NOT yours and is in very limited supply)
as well as making it easier to remove the paper after the block is finished.
alright, maybe only a hundred!
It took a while to get the hang of cutting the proper size and aligning it just right for sewing.
More fabric = much easier = saves tons of seam ripping
SO PLEASE BUY TONS OF FABRIC IF YOU PLAN TO PAPER PIECE!
Surely remember to lay your 1st piece right side UP and ALL OTHERS right side DOWN
because if you don’t that makes for tons more seam ripping.
OH and please lay out your pattern before you begin and mark on it with pencil the top bottom left and right pieces and then write on the shapes which color or fabric goes in it because it will make your life way easier (well maybe not your whole life).
and I cursed the whole time I was piecing it
I am so glad I did it and am totally in LOVE with this block!!!
