Design Wall Monday - February 9

I have been so good in 2015 working on WIPs and scrap projects, but I fell off the wagon and started something new.  I just couldn't resist joining the Hazel Hedgehog QAL.

I chose to make the "gigantic" sized block and honestly, I don't think I realized just how gigantic this block is.  Hazel is big!

This block is much more easier than I thought it would be (I admit to being angle challenged). I did sew her face together upside down, but I learned to stop watching TV and to focus on my project.  After a tiny bit of unpicking, she turned out just fine.

One tip - I did measure the first pieces I sewed together and my seam was slightly off. Normally, I would not mind.  But with all the angles in this block, I decided to change sewing feet to one that sews more of a scant 1/4 inch seam and I had no other issues.

Next up, I think will be Hazel's cousin in yellow.
