What a fun sewing weekend! I spent quite a bit of time working on my single-girl project for my spicing up the kitchen partner. I still haven't decided if this is going to become a wall hanging, table runner, or individual placemats. Maybe you could weigh in with your opinion.
Then I chose a short stitch length and did my paper piecing. If you are doing this, make sure you double check the positioning of each piece so that your arch is completely covered when you flip the fabric back over.
Then I trimmed each arch to the actual size (my templates included the seam allowances) by cutting along the dark line that shows through the paper.
What should I make of my SG blocks?
