Compass Quilters: August Block Finish

Here are my cute little hummingbird blocks sewn together to make two 10 1/2" blocks that will be sent to Rebecca over at One Wee Bird. As queen bee, she selected this pattern specifically to torture me. :) Okay, not really, but there were moments I thought that. I've definitely learned a lot about paper piecing and while it still doesn't come naturally to me I'm at least comfortable enough to want to attempt some other paper piecing patterns in the future.


Now I just need to get these packaged up and shipped to New Zealand. Wondering what adventures September will bring and trying to figure out what I will choose for October when I get to be queen bee.

  10. I love the blocks. Is there a place to find the pattern for the blocks? I think it's a great pattern. I think most of us have an issue of paper piecing at first. I made a paper pieced bra last month. I hadn't paper pieced in quite some time and I had trouble with it at first. I really had to concentrate. I'm not used to thinking in what I think of as "reverse." I get disgusted at myself when a piece of fabric either is not large enough to cover the area or I misplaced it. You ended with great blocks. Your bee queen will be thrilled.
