WIP Wednesday

little apples drunkard's path blocks

On Monday night, some of the members of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild assembled for some sewing and socializing. This was the first of our new week-night monthly sew-ins, and it was a big success with 16 attendees!  Mona gave a great paper piecing tutorial and handed out kits to everyone with instructions, a glue stick and four patterns, one each on vellum, regular copy paper, newsprint and a thin interfacing-type paper. Even though I'be already done quite a bit of paper piecing, I'm excited to see how the vellum works.

While I was at this gathering, I was able to squeeze in some more drunkard's path blocks in between my socializing!

It's so very weird, though. . . Last time I had problems with the small blocks but the large ones were darn near perfect. This time my small blocks are near perfect but my large blocks are awful!!! See . . . they're nowhere near square!
