Ava was done by just measuring, cutting and piecing, nothing real eventful (thank goodness). The only stumbling block was rotating one of the stripe blocks 90 degrees so a bit of ripping was involved. The block worked out almost exactly 6 1/2". I belive I am better at having a consistent 1/4" seam allowance.
Daffodil proved to be a bit more frustrating. I have done quite a bit of paper piecing throughout my quilting life so it isn't intimidating for me. But...when I do a bonehead mistake I am reminded to concentrate better. What I did was put a green fabric in palce of a white, even though I had the paper marked correctly. As Homer, Simpson that is, would say, "Doh,"
