    This is the hand piecing tutorial I send folks in our Jen Kingwell club at my LQS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNuN9kiGxDQ&t=90s

    Helen -- I think I will do a second of these blocks and photograph the step-outs, this time sewing in a smarter order. With the first one, I sewed the petals in last -- which works, but it did get fiddly.

    Also, yes, I'll get a photo of the back side! I did learn to sew by machine as a kid, but I never was able to make friends with it.

    I started making quilts because I saw Jen's Wandering Wife and got stars in my eyes, so I just figured out the hand piecing part. That first quilt is a little rocky in the precision department (but it still looks great, imo!), but I have definitely gotten much better with practice.

    It's great to have hand piecing as an option because sometimes it's honestly just easier. Y-seams and partial seams are easy as pie by hand.

    If you get a chance, Helen, post your half block and we'll see if we can troubleshoot! How far off are you?

      Sonia, thank you for your explanation and photos. This will help people with this block.

      NOW, let's all take a step back and WAIT until this block pattern and Jen's instructions/videos are released, several months from now.

      There will be lots of help and more information then. No one should feel they are "behind"--the BOM doesn't start until January 1, 2024.

      This is the time to gather fabrics and supplies and get ready for a great Block of the Month project in 2024.

      I am going to Close this Topic for the time being. We will get back to it once the pattern has been released.
