It’s been a frustrating one for me trying to figure out what I would do with this May paper piecing project for Island Batik. I made one block and didn’t like it, so searched, and finally decided on two others. UGH!

For the week of 4/15 – 4/21/24:

Here’s how my week went: For the week of 4/15/24 – 4/21/24::
