Another postage stamp block is completed and placing it next to the other three made me feel like I was getting somewhere. This measures about 40 inches square. I am having issues with the blocks not being square by a quarter inch to half inch, but I am hoping it will iron out in the end- fingers crossed.
Here is a closeup of the back of my hexagon 'blocks'. I always wondered what the back of these types of projects looked like when figuring out how to paper piece. So here you go.
I complete the petals then add the center with one thread. Then the ecru borders(Kona Bone), which are pieced by themselves, are added in one or two threads. Since the paper is not basted, I can slip out the papers when each hexagon is surrounded.
I thought I would be overwhelmed, but I only have 30 flowers blocks to add. I have completed piles of flowers and edging waiting to be sewn together.
Another block is completed in my Cathedral Window. I think this makes 13 or 14? I have 5 left before the bigger piecing begins.
On another note, I ordered some sale fabric this week from iltec on etsy.

The secret of the shredded quilt is now safe. Anna will love the dogs as her quilt back. It was her favorite print. It was more cost effective than wandering around my LQSs and 'needing' other things as well!
