Paper piecing... ugh. I know there are people out there who want to tell you its not that hard... blah, blah, blah. It was hard! I just had a really hard time figuring it out, wrapping my brain around working backwards was a big ordeal. But once I figured it out I have to admit it wasn't hard. However, I had cut out my pieces wrong, so my block is backward from what its supposed to be.
After looking at lots of tutorials and videos, I found this tutorial on you tube that helped me more than anything.

I love how it turned out! Although it is smaller than it should be so I'm going to have to add some extra sashing around it. Not too big a deal.

The first block we did was a simple Log Cabin block. The links provided are (1)to the main page for the sew along and (2)the instructions provided for the week's block.
I have some experience doing log cabin blocks already, but I tried to follow her instructions. I kind of wish I hadn't. It bothers me that the small yellow square isn't right in the center. That said, I really am excited to be learning so many new techniques with this sew along!
