So I feel all smuggy pants to be able to tell you that three of the seven are now done - only four to go. Here they are:
Y seams, all conquered (six, yes really, six, hours later - I can make a whole baby quilt in that time). This block is supposed to be hand pieced, but I decided I had hand piecing fatigue and that it would be useful to learn how to machine piece Y seams. That's how I justified it to myself anyway. So those points aren't as super perfect as they could have been, but I don't think they're too bad for a first try. It's just as well I did it on the machine though. Imagine how long it would have taken to hand piece. Having said that - the time includes making and cutting out the little plastic template pieces and reading the instructions a mere zillion times. I also managed to put all the pieces in the right place the first time. I did NOT want to be unpicking any of this.

Hand pieced curves (for the second time). I'm still not loving hand pieced curves, but it is now officially ticked off the 'need to learn' list. This is not supposed to be a circle, by the way, just in case you think it looks a bit squarish - that is the pattern, folks.

And for some light relief, I did the plain machine pieced block for January. Half square triangles, I own you too (although apparently I need to get the iron out. Again). That is some matching points.

Now I have three appliqué blocks to do and a Y seam extravaganza called Sarah's Garden. I am quite looking forward to the appliqué - I plan to get the little bits all cut out so I can sit and hand sew in the evening. Sounds peaceful, right? *snort* We'll see!
Okey dokey, I'm off to link up to Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday, and Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation, and Show and Tell Thursday at Sunshine x 3. Go and have a look too.
I have a finish to show you on Friday, so see you then!
