Triangles Galore July Bee Block is all ready to post off to Lisa our July Queen Bee
Another paper piecing block but I didn't find it quite so easy to do as the New York Beauty block:
- it took me 3 out of the 8 main triangle sections to get into my stride and then the paper piecing part of the block all fell into place
- sewing the sections was trickier and not everything lines up as well as I like (being a total perfectionist) - the horizontal lines around the star aren't all level and the centre of the whole block doesn't meet up properly
- the block didn't lie flat initially - I'd sewn up one of the sections slighter wider than the others and this made the fabric lift instead of being flat. I measured each section, narrowed the one that was a tiny bit wider and then everything lay better.
I've posted it to our NYC Mod Guild blog, just need to get it in the post now and I hope Lisa likes it :)
