I finally decided how I wanted to fussy cut the paisley fabric for the inside 4 honeycombs of my new POTC project and was so excited to get started before a meeting Tuesday that I dug right in. Actually, I should have slowed down a little. Oops!
I finished the first 16 pieces this morning. I was surprised how much smaller the block was than I expected. Of course I was basing my size guesstimate on internet pictures and the fabrics laid out before basting. Since my template has a 3/8" seam allowance I should have known better. I'm not saying it's small, it's actually a very nice size, it's just smaller than I had expected.
Next I need to fussy cut the 8 honeycombs that will go on the next round, to the left and right of each green honeycomb.
Hopefully this will get the POTC block out of my system for a little while so I can go back to my Twisted Hexies. I mean I'll go back to TH after I see if there is more of this fabric at the LQS... LOL!!!
