I also did some hand piecing last night while catching up on some DVRed shows on TV. I did the first couple of steps of the Berkely block, as you can see below.
I guess I should have fussy cut the striped rectangles. GRRRRR! Remember I wasn't too sure about those stripes to start with. I think I should have followed my gut. But I'm not enough of a perfectionist to go back and do that over. This may be part of a potholder when I'm done. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
This is a scheduled hand quilting day with my church group. We'll see if anyone actually shows up or if I am working on the church quilt all by myself. I'm already getting nervous about whether or not it will be completed in time. I guess we will see!
Happy quilting to all of you!
