OMG April 2016 Goal

For my April OMG goal, I’m keeping it simple and choosing one of my bee blocks because quite honestly, paper piecing pretty much terrifies me, and having some extra accountability and encouragement will help me not to procrastinate too long and may help reduce my anxiety about making this paper-pieced block. This particular block is Hidden Gems from The Bee Hive, and it requires templates that are printed on legal-size paper or printed on standard size paper and taped together. I almost have my fabric pulled for this block but am waiting on a second lime print fabric from an Etsy shop. It is a fabric I already have used and love, Allotments in Limelight from Karen Lewis’ Blueberry Park collection. Our April queen bee, Linda, has requested girlie-colored print fabrics: plum, fuschia, bubblegum pink, lime/apple, and black with a white-on-white background. Here is my fabric pull so far:


I’ll probably start working on this bee block on Saturday after next (April 16th) since that is my first open day this month. I’ll have some early morning coffee to get me going (but not too much since that is not good for rotary cutting!) and then will head to my cutting table. Hopefully I’ll have the templates printed out by then.

Please send good paper-piecing vibes!!!
