Just 80 Minutes: Part Two
Change of Plans! Strangely enough, on Tuesday night when the Guild came to the Bee Blocks part of the agenda, dear Cozy was Queen Bee and she asked for a pair of pickle dish blocks. With lots of paper piecing. And [shudder] curved piecing. Paper piecing and curved piecing in one block. Ye gods.
1. There are many ways to make a mistake on a pickle dish arc. I will not enumerate them.
2. One can rip out on paper piecing. But only one time per seam.
3. When attempting curved piecing of paper pieced arcs, one must remove the paper first.
4. There's a rhythm to it.
Cozy's recipe calls for bright colors for pickle dish bases and inside points on both arcs, light colors for the smaller arc, dark colors for the larger arcs, lightest colors for the shoulders and gray (not pictured) for the center to which all four components eventually will be affixed.
I'm getting the hang of it, though this morning I found the words to "A Boy Named Sue" running through my head, i.e., my next project will not be a pickle dish!
