Trying something new!!

On the last morning of our retreat, I decided that I wanted to try a new pattern that I found in the latest American Quilter magazine.

I am not a huge fan of paper piecing but thought that this one might be fun to do.

One thing that I really liked about it was that you used 2.5 inch strips to do the piecing which meant that it was super easy to cut the fabrics.

What I didn’t like about it was that there was a large pile of wasted fabric once the block was pieced……

I like how the flower part looks and I may try more as the summer goes on, but I will NOT use strips….

I am glad that I made a test block and learned how I will change it going forward.

I am looking forward to working on it further!!
