For our IMAGINE at do. Good Stitches group we did these “ET Phone Home” blocks for July. (The tutorial and template can be found here.)
I’ve done paper piecing in the past, but never one this complex. It took me about 5 hours to make the two blocks. Yes. 5 hours. The first couple of segments took me the longest but by the end I had a system down and I was flying through them. I do admit that the afternoon I was working on these I was not on my A-game so to speak. I ended up having to rip out 3 seams. Paper piecing and seam ripping don’t really go together.
The finished quilt is going to be stunning though!
