So, this is my firefly test block. I am unsure if I like it or not. I really liked the sample, but am unsure If I like mine. I am trying very hard not to buy new fabric and use what I have. My daughter says it looks like a bee. There is a bee variation for this pattern, but that is not the patch I went down. I explained to her that I would have a black stripe in the middle of the bee’s body. “Ahhh No, Mom. Still looks like a bee.”
So, you should try piecing that antenna section. Virtually impossible. I sewed several, all crazily wrong. I finally resorted to paper piecing, just this section. Then there was not problem. This pattern which comes from Pattern drop, calls for 16 of these blocks. Do I like it enough for sixteen blocks? What do you think? Should I change something? Should I make it a bee and lose the light up part (teal print)? Decisions, Decisions. Let me know what you think. My blogging friends give the best advice.
