I worked on the Jawbreaker pillow top over the weekend in between working on my donation projects. The Journey2Nebula video for this week’s piecing is available. I didn’t wait for it as I had time and want to keep progressing. Also, I have done this kind of piecing before and will do it when I eventually make the Spin Wheel quilt. I have done this kind of piecing before.
I should have pressed the way I normally press rather than pressing open partly and pressing to the side partly. I worked out the issues, but bouncing between the two methods wasn’t helpful. My fault.
I think the piece looks good and I will probably be able to finish it this weekend, so I can stay on track with the series.
I was annoyed again at the partial blocks, but watching the video made me understand Julie Herman’s thinking about the design choices. I may even follow the rest of the pattern!
