Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts is hosting the Milky Way Sampler -- there will be 12 monthly paper pieced patterns. No, I have not lost my mind. Paper piecing is my least favourite technique, but I want to retain the skills I learned last year. We'll see how it goes. I had a few issues with the first block -- this was the first time I used a print for paper piecing. I forgot that you have to be very careful of right side and wrong side of the fabric -- not a worry when you use solids. LOL
Molli Sparkles is hosting the Honey Pot Bee. Each month, there will be two blocks, but the beauty is that you are making the blocks for yourself. So you can pick and choose which blocks you want to make. Here are the first three blocks.

This was my favourite block to make. I'm starting to like HST's.
The strawberry block was my least favourite to make -- 2-inch squares.
There are so many QAL's out there, it's hard to decide which ones to play along with.
