This week was the third of the beginners' patchwork sessions at the WI Office.
We were learning curved blocks such as Drunkard's Path and Corner to Corner Curve.
Except I didn't really take to them!
First of all I got bored with all the drawing round templates and cutting out. Then I had issues pinning the pieces together around the curve because of my long nails. Then I found them difficult to stitch by hand so tried on the machine. Then my bobbin ran out.
So I threw a fit and gave up! I will go back and finish it at some point, but it just wasn't my day for it!
Instead I started on another Courthouse Steps block. I didn't manage to finish that before I had to leave, but I have got another block nearly ready to go.
This is Tumbling Blocks. I do like paper piecing and the optical illusion and geometric shapes please me.
I have also been working on the Japanese folded fabric quilt, so that could be done fairly soon!
