Here is the paper piecing block I tried. It is an 8 inch block. I wanted to make sure it would go together before wasting time resizing LOL

Its the double heart block



Will wait on some more ideas to come up and sample some more LOL

Okay after walking away for a while. I went back at the block.

First off I had cut the width of the strips to large by a 1/4inch. I redid the strips and it came together nicely

I will state it is not a simple block to do. As you can see in my sample the center puckered. I am not so good at interlocking seams and the 5/8 of a inch given to leave unsewn just didnt seem to work so great for me. Might want to do a bit more. Also I would starch the pieced before sewing together they seem to go out of shape just a bit.

Other then that it is a block I would do again. But not a beginner block at all folks

Worked on two of the blocks at random.
The X and + block: it turned out slightly small would suggest a a scant 1/4 inch seam

The hex go round block: an important thing to remember is when adding the triangles longer side down the side of the block shorter side on the top and bottom. I would also have cut them slightly larger 6x8

Will post the pics in a bit

X's and +'s block (I cut it down to the 12.5 since it did not come out the 13)


Hexing Around Block (I had to piecemill the boarder in order to get to 12.5)


Both block together:


Thanks for picking such wonderful new blocks to try. Am planning on sampler a few more tomorrow
