Susan: One Lonely Sort of Fireworks

So, I really don't like paper-piecing. I find it frustrating and stressful. I've seen all the videos, I've done multiple different patterns, but I avoid it like the plague, except for the pineapple quilt block, which is all straight line sewing and strip cutting, no big deal. I actually printed out the paper pattern for Deana's design, but I looked at it and knew I would never do it.

I began some improv piecing from my scraps and this block is okay. I realized afterward that in my zeal to get some sky into the middle of the fireworks, I made it look a little funny, but that puppy is done and not a single stitch is coming out!

Well, at least you made the heart/flag row so you can do anything you want with the paper piecing row.
