Interlocking Seasons, Thistle Blooms, Circle of Geese . . . maybe we need to put all the blocks that will drive us insane in the same piecing group. At least then the rest of the group won't hate us; we'll just hate each other!  Grin

The thistle bloom did look amazing when complete. My slightly wrong sized one I still have and want to do something with it as it is just so pretty.

Greetings Everyone,

Gonna share the first block done out of the Dr Who blocks. Not gonna use this one on the quilt. Thinking might make a pillow or a tote bag out of it LOL

Paper piecing is crazy but I do like the blocks once done. It's just getting to the done part that makes me nuts LOL

enjoy
well and wonderment

Asked my daughter she wants this one a tote bag and the screwdriver the pillow to go with the quilt.

no need to be. it has lots of parts on the blocks, but just follow the the numbers and it comes together well.

I have started just pulling the paper off the seams after joining the sections. Easier for me to line up the seams and get all the pieces to connect right. I remove the seam allowance paper and then iron then move on to the next part. works better for me that way. I have a line to follow LOL

Think I'm most impressed by the weeping angel's fingers and wings. Those are such thin strips to manage even with paper-piecing. Very, very nice job, Carol!

Wow...carol...excellent and neat piecing!  I need to check out that quiltalong...I still have not put together my last Dr. Who quilt from another quiltalong.

lol kbrison...your solution might end up as a Craftster cat fight! ha

I am probably going to only join one group this round so that I can finish up some quilts before the end of summer.  Plus, I owe a few people extra blocks from previous rounds (uhm, carol... Grin)...
