Home sweet home

Finally finished block 2 of the Home sweet home series, I can't say this was the easiest block, had a bunch of trouble with the curving vine, I finally used Wash Away Wonder Tape by Collins, which is double sided clear wash away 1/4" tape, it works well with placing the vines after sewing the vines. I soaked the block to wash away the tape, and the block puckered up and I had to press the life out of it. I tried to make the flowers with the bias but that was a pain too, so I made some rushed flowers, I then decided I didn't like the roof.... so I took the first one off and used a different fabric, so glad this one is done!

Oh no Betty! I guess the only thing that is good is I"m happy to know even excellent quilters have problems sometimes!

Betty it looks perfect to me. If you tell me all the problems that you encounter along the way then maybe I'll know what to expect when I do mine. I'll need all the help I can get.
