    well done with these blocks. I must admit I found them very difficult. Partly getting the print out printed to the correct dimension and also, just all those seams.

    Yep, perfection stress would kill me. It’s why I’m not in any of the bees. LOL Your blocks look great, and they would be fine for me, too.

    These look great to me but I do know the desire to send perfect blocks to others.

    Hello Roseanne, Your fabric choices are fantastic and do work beautifully together! I enjoy paper piecing until it comes to removing the paper and I think that is why I avoid it as much as possible. I am sure you are being to hard on yourself concerning the blocks being perfect. The receiver of these blocks will be very thrilled with your blocks! Thank you for sharing these special blocks with us! You always inspire me in so many ways!!! Have a fantastic day!

  5. Oh that purple is lovely, dark and deep. Your points look perfect to me. I am sure the queen bee will be thrilled.

    Hey Roseann. You are adding skill sets to your repertoire. I understand the stress part. Mostly I say if I’m not having fun doing it, do I want to continue. I like Kathleen’s comment. Instead of Elmers, I use a glue stick. Things are still not perfect bug closer! Give yourself a pat on the back. Those blocks look great.

    We are usually harder on ourselves than someone else would be. I think you did a fine job!

  8. I think they look fab! Do you use Carol Doak’s paper? I love it and it is nicer to work with the fabric. You know Elmer’s washable glue is safe, so it could help with some of the slippage – a little when you are pressing and then you can “release it” when you remove the paper…just a thought. My other thought is that the freezer paper technique works as its own elmer’s glue. The trick with it is you sew next to the seam so it means your “folds” must be accurate….if you get my drift. I feel a tutorial coming. Sorry for your stress but with so many projects, it does happen. I love my ambassador work but it is work. But, one more down and maybe a good plan to skip the bees nextyear.

  9. I bet by the end of the year with the bees, your stress level will have settled down a bit. Sometimes we think it all needs to be point perfect, when it really doesn’t. We are our own worst critics. Your blocks look great! Sit back, take a sip of coffee/tea, and pat yourself on the back for a great finish!

  10. These turned out lovely. I hear you about Bee perfection stress. I am not in any bees this year. I haven’t missed it a bit. But I do love
    paper piecing. For me that’s not stressful.
