I am intrigued by this paper piecing. I decided to try a larger block before I forgot what I had learned.
I copied the pattern, taped the 4 pieces together and numbered them all
Then I just cut chunks of fabric that somewhat resembled the shape I needed, turned the pattern to the back side and started sewing
At this point I am not too optimistic. Did you ever see a more sorry-looking block?
I think the pattern should be on the back also. I can't tell where to place the piece to sew it on. I decided to use a pin to push through the front
When turned over you get this little holey line so you know where the fabric needs to end up
After ripping out and resewing 4 or 5 pieces that I still cut too short, I finally ended up with this
I have to say I am surprisingly happy with the outcome.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
