Sewing, sewing, sewing...

This is the first block from the color challenge on OST. It is hand pieced, which was done without any instruction or real experience. Let my just tell you, that is NOT the way to go. I'm all for learning by trial and error, but I will never advocate that for learning to hand piece. The reason why is simple.

After you spend so much time piecing it, it's very disheartening to spend just as much time ripping it out again. And then doing the exact same thing over.

But then again, when you finally break the cycle and complete it, man, it feels good! Of course, that's how you get suckered into starting the process all over again with a new block.

So, like all else with quilting, proceed at your own risk.
