February One Monthly Goal Complete

While the bitter cold and the snow raged on,
I stayed pretty snug in my sewing room
making some flakes of my own.  

My goal for February was to make all 16 of these
 blocks.  It sounded easy enough...at first.
Then the reality of paper piecing set in.

Somehow I have emerged triumphant, and with
a couple days to spare.  If I'm being honest, this
really has more to do with me wanting it over with
than it does about sticking to my commitments.
I'm so happy to be done with the mess!
There were days I even had paper in my hair!
(Tip:  pull long hair back before using this method.)

I may never do another paper piecing project
but I don't have any regrets about this one.
The snowflakes were worth it--just this once!

Happy quilting!

lol I say never again to paper pieced until the next project comes along. Definitely worth the pain, the snowflakes look great. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

Yea, you finished! They look great! Sorry you don't like paper piecing. We can't like everything.

This turned out just beautiful!! What a lot of work picking off those fiddly bits of paper!! A real winner!!

Linda said...

Messy or not, they are beautiful! I enjoyed paper piecing the ONE time I tried it, but it was for a single pillow, not 16 blocks. :)

Debbie said...

Beautiful! All look good, and glad you survived the pp.

It is absolutely gorgeous! You deserve a ribbon on this one! I would love to convert this one to a non-PP pattern, maybe in 2025! LOL. Great job and good for you to push through the difficult technique that is not your favorite or mine! Hugs

Your blocks look fantastic! Those are a lot of work for each one!
