I bought this book and started a block of the month program with Homestead Hearth in the US about a year ago.
When I started I was planning to hand piece them but after the first 8 I was over that idea. I liked being able to take the blocks with me where ever I went but all those templates were bringing me down!
This is one of the early disasters.
Block 2 Autumn Tints
I really don't like this block, not the colors nor my sewing and I am going to redo all the ones I hand pieced at the start.
So then some lovely kind soul who realised handpiecing is not for everyone, came up with the paper piecing templates and posted them on another group I am in.
A long time ago I made a paper pieced needlecase and loved it, so I felt I could deal with the blocks.
So far I have finished 59 blocks out of 70 that I have received via the BOM.
I will eventually post them here, just have to master the art of the scanner or learn to take better pictures.
Here are my blocks for the QAL that leave no doubt as to my skill with the aforementioned scanner. :)
This one was done by hand, it went all wrinkly when I scanned it and looks much better in reality.
I am doing my quilt in 1930's fabrics and am using the leftovers from the BOM (there are plenty) to make another scrap quilt. More on that to come.
