How Many Mistakes Can You Find?

With the completion of this Dear Jane block, J-4 Adelaine's Apron Strings, I have concluded that my paper piecing skills leave a lot to be desired! Note the right side of this block...how many mistakes can you find? The photo hides some of the imperfections, but in person this block is not the best example of how accurate paper piecing can be.

On July 11th and 12th best-selling author and award-winning quiltmaker, Carol Doak, will be lecturing on paper piecing at our quilt guild's monthly meeting and then teaching two workshops the following day. I am planning on attending the lecture and both workshops, so hopefully I will come away with some better paper piecing skills or at least learn enough so that I can get blocks to come out even and square!
