Ohh buddy! This block was a toughie!! Not difficult per say, but it took a lot of time. I actually started this Sunday night. I got about half of the paper piecing pieces done (say that three times fast!). Then Monday night I finished the pieces and sewed them into a block. So it was time to remove the paper! I feel like that has taken more time than the sewing! (of course I would rather sew than remove paper, so. . .)
I was disappointed some of the seams didn't match up, and that is what I struggle the most with in paper piecing. I think if I would have removed the paper before sewing them, I could have matched them up better.
I really really like this block, but there is NO way I would make a full quilt out of this block by paper piecing! I found the paper pieced pattern here at generations quilt patterns. It was very helpful, but I don't like the paper piecing.
