It's WIP Wednesday again! I feel like I put in a normal amount of effort this week and got less than I was expecting back.
Let's start with paper piercing. It was my first time doing it, and for the first coaster I'm pretty sure I took out every seam three times. (Although, this makes it really, really easy to get the paper off.) The second one went together a little better; I sort of figured out what I was doing. And the with the third one...the quarter with the pin has incorrect measurements and won't line up. So I tossed them all in a bag to put on hold for a few days. (I'm still planning on three more with the rest of the color combinations.)
Next I worked on putting a back on the pieced part of the shower curtain. I cut it too small the first time and had to recut. Luckily I had a huge piece of scrap...I got it for the very first thing I sewed, a tablecloth, and WAY overestimated how much I needed. I've also learned about french seams since I started piecing it, so I'll finish the curtain up with those.
And lastly, I got more fabric. It's for my heart quilt, and I'm really excited to start. But I need to finish the two things above and some mending first. (Hopefully. Unless I can convince myself otherwise.)
Edit: since I also tried paper piercing for the first time, I'm linking up with TNT Thursday too!
