Paper Piecing Fun

I ordered a new Paper Piece Pattern from Craftsy by Juliet of Tartankiwi.  It's the most beautiful butterfly pattern.  It took me a couple of hours to put together Part A and B............incorrectly.  It was my fault for not following the direction to color my pattern so I wouldn't get confused about which fabric goes where.

 Here's the first try.  The arrows show wrong color and mismatched seam.


The second time around (following directions) I sewed it together correctly and in half the time.


Only 5 more sections to go.  The block finishes at 12 inches.  I can hardly wait to see the end result.

Hope you had a good day.

The fabrics you are using for the butterfly are beautiful!!

I enjoyed looking at your completed blocks -- I'm new to quilting - I may look for the book you used to try myself!

Thanks for the inspiration!
