Above is the block I just finished for the Modern Bee Hive that I belong to.  The pattern is Stacked Windmills and is in the book Modern Bee.  Annie is the Queen Bee this month.
As you may know, I’m not too fond of piecing, but I join these groups so I will be forced to increase my skills.  Above I did a lot of cutting.
Then a lot of trimming.
Then I carefully placed the blocks as shown in the picture in the book.  I’m sure this will be no surprise, but even after I placed everything as it should be, I still messed up and had to un-stitch on one row.  I guess I should be thankful it was only one row!  Anyway, I’m glad I made this block.  It does give me more self-confidence when I look at it.  In the first picture it looks like a seam is not straight, so I ran to my sewing room to check, thinking I would have to do more un-stitching.  Fortunately, it must have been the way I smoothed the block (I should have ironed it) that gave it that curved look.  I just hope Annie likes it.
