I recently finished my first paper-pieced block from Jinny Beyer's Block of the Month quilt. I have a lot to say, but I can sum it up with "I learned a lot!"
I learned that it's important to use ALL of the pieces of fabric (yes, little purple petal, I'm talking to you!). I learned that it's not a great idea to "just move this piece over a little bit to fix that last piece." I learned how many times one can take out stitching before a foundation falls to pieces. I learned that persistence pays off!
I'm pleased with my block and not so frightened of the next one!
