Victory!

Alternate post title: Third Time Lucky.

The process of paper-piecing, which was giving me so much grief these past few days, finally clicked. Last night I was able to make all seven trees needed for the Snowman in the Woods wallhanging.

And here they are, each one a little different from the others.


I'm so glad I decided to make the smaller size quilt instead of the full-size, 25-block version that required 20 trees. I think I would have gone a little crazy.

Now it's time to move onto the next step and put these blocks together. But, marking first. Always marking first...

p.s. This was my 400th post. And I missed my 2-year blogiversary on January 4. Milestones, I guess.
