A Pretty Mess
Literally. This is a charming block, but clearly the piecing will not pass. My Quilt Pro program will no longer print foundations for paper piecing (who knows why), and the templates which the computer prints are not accurate. So--I tried to figure this out for myself. I could do that, now that I have figured out how to read the rotary cutting instructions which would eliminate some of the obvious errors, but there are a few bits that defeat me, like that second stem piece. That's not any standard angle.
Paper piecing is the obvious choice for this block, and there was a time when I would have drawn the foundations myself. But I'm not inclined to do that this time. So a certain challenge may just have to get along without me this year.
