Tiny Tuesday #31

Ok, this one was a bear. I really want to know how the heck this was done by hand by anyone.......
It is not perfect but I am so calling this one done. Part of the problem... a boy who was not feeling 100% Saturday when I made this and wanted to watch me work on it. Nope... that just didn't work. Then..... I read the directions through earlier this week and thought I was to piece the middle 4 together first. Big OOPS! After I had done that and had my first corner part together I read that I was to attach one of the middle parts to make it a square so they would go together easier. Yup.. I ended up with 4 partial seams. Not fun.
Oh well, live and learn and I will be reading the paper piecing directions a few more times and as I put it together for the next ones coming up.
This one has 64 pieces in a finished 4.5 inch block. #31 - Painted Star of many points.


I am so happy to be moving onto #32 for next week. I'm going to give hand piecing a shot with that one. Wish me luck!

  1. Wow - it does look really intricate! Good for you for persevering and getting it done. I am glad that you are trying to do some hand-piecing - it does get easier although on these little blocks it still can be quite challenging.

  3. Congratulations! It is never easy to mix set in seams with paper piecing, but yours looks great. Love your color choices.

I love to read your comments. Yahoo is currently having some issues with telling other servers to reject messages due to the third party server that sends the comments to e-mail.
