Oh my!

August was Julie's month in my scrap busting quilting bee.  She sent each of us a monochromatic selection of scraps along with some brown background fabric and asked for a geese in a circle block.  Sweet- I love how these blocks look.

Although I had never done paper piecing before, I knew the general concept and decided to naively jump into the project.  I had saw this block, thought it was awesome, so I decided that was what I was going to make.  I mean, it can't be that hard, right?  Wrong!  I did not know what I was getting myself into!


All in all, despite all of the newbie difficulties I had, I love how the block turned out!  I just can't say that I'm going to make another one any time soon.  :)

You did really well with this one. Plus, now I want to make one too! I just checked out the tutorial you linked to. It'll be a challenge! (Well, the first one will be fun, the other ones will be the challenge, when I know how much work it is :))
