I made a couple of test blocks for the intertwining blocks. The lovely ladies hosting the QAL provided two different ways of putting the blocks together. Paper piecing or traditional.
Traditional on left, paper piecing on right
Initially I was planning on doing the paper piecing method since I really like the precision you can get with paper piecing. However after doing one test block I felt that it was going to be too time consuming.
I made up a second block using the traditional method and really liked how quickly it came together. So that'll be the route I go.
I also sewed up one of the curves for the Totally Groovy quilt. It's a liiiittle bit wonky.
Not terrible for first try but not terrific, definitely worth a little more practice.
