When sewing machines attack!

Nicole and I have been texting back and forth about our difficulties with the piecing of our Metro Hoops quilt.  Poor Nicole even suffered an injury when she was so focused on her piecing, she sewed her own finger!  Read about it here.  I'm hoping Nicole and her finger are better today!

I got through making my strip sets and cutting my arcs for Metro Hoops.  So far, so good.

My first attempts at piecing were a little less successful.  I had a number of blocks make it to the "discard" pile.  But now I think I'm getting the hang of it.  I'm glad that I cut some extra arcs!


  1. Great job on these blocks ! You are braver then me trying to attempt to make this quilt :-D

  2. Looking good! Love your fabric choices!

  3. How can you go wrong with those arcs, love your colors!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed we all have a better curve it up week!

  4. Oh I love your colors. It is amazing to me how many different looks come from the same curved piece. Can't wait to see them all finished.
