Quiet Play. This one scared me a little, which is probably why I put off making it for so long. Some of those pieces are tiny! And there are a lot of them!
In order to keep everything straight, I had to label my paper pieces before I started sewing. That made it much easier to put all the right fabrics in the right places. This small section has 12 pieces, many of which are much, much smaller than the seam allowances.
When I finished the block, I put it next to the April block, only to discover a minor error. It doesn't show up well in the picture, but the muslin I used for the background of the May block is not the same as the muslin I used for the background of the April block. It's a little rougher looking and a little darker. Oops.
The July block will be released in only 4 days, and I still have the June block to tackle...I don't know if that will happen before we leave for our trip. I have at least one pair of hole-in-the-knee pants that need to become shorts before we pull out and I'd like to baste one more batch of blue hexagons. We'll see what happens over the next few days.
I'm linking up again today: Needle and Thread Thursday and Random Thursday.
