Me and paper piecing are learning to co-exist and I must say, we are starting to get along pretty well.

For our June Bee Hive block, our swarm mate Beth asked us to make the Houndstooth block using black as a background and any low volume fabric as the accent. Here’s what I ended up doing:

Houndstooth Block Bee Hive

This block is pretty easy, but it still took me three tries to get it right. My problem was my seam allowance. It was too big, even using my quarter inch foot, so I had to move the needle to the right to make the seam allowance smaller.

If you would like to make your own Houndstooth block head on over to Blossom Heart Quilts for the free tutorial. While you’re there, check out all the other great blocks Alyce has tutorials for.

I love those little frogs with their crowns! Now I just have to add some goodies to the package and it will be ready for the mail.  Woohoo! A finish this week! 🙂

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Pink Doxies, and Sew Stitching Cute
