It's been over a month since I've posted about the Farmer's Wife QAL. That's because I hit a mental road block. After I attempted this block....
which tested my patience with tiny HSTs and ended up being completely not square. I was frustrated. I didn't know how I would complete any of the more complicated and intricate blocks if I couldn't get #34 Flock right.
.....so I pull the whole project to the side....
Then, thankgoodness for Michelle of City House Studio, who blogged about joining a group for the FWQAL where there were paper piecing templates. Ah ha! That was my answer! No better way to get perfect points every time. Thank you so much Michelle!
|#39 Friendship with a little improv|
So I started with some easier blocks to remind myself how to paper piece (until now, I'd only done one circle of geese for our Bee). Sweet. Don't mind the improv on the Friendship block. After I'd paper pieced the whole thing, I realized I forgot to check the scaling on my printer.
A lot easier in my opinion. Not necessarily less time consuming, but overall less frustration so far.
And no cutting 12 triangles from templates.Pin It
