Beejeebers January block

Yesterday I made my first bee block for the Beejeebers Quilting Bee! She asked for either a wonky house or tree. I decided to go with a wonky house. I knew from experience that "improv" piecing is not that easy for me, so I decided to go with paper piecing.

The Problem: I didn't have a house paper piecing pattern. So... I made one. It was an awesome learning experience, and I am SO pleased with the result! Hopefully Jamie will like it too! :) So here it is: a paper pieced wonky house of my own design!!


Yay!!! But... 2nd problem. I didn't copy the pattern. Whoops! lol!

Now see! Not copying the pattern sounds exactly like something I would do! Love the house! Did you get any tips online on how to begin with making your own pattern or did you just wing it?
