I’m in Love!

Block 1 is now complete! 
This is hand pieced.  I’ve never hand pieced a block with this many pieces before.  I enjoyed it, but I need to learn how to handle all the seams this threw at me.  If you’re a hand piecer, do you press each section as you go, or wait until the entire block is finished?  When do you trim your seams?   I mark each piece on the stitching line and add a rough quarter inch all the way around when I cut.  So after I sew, I go back and trim seams to a scant quarter inch.  It’s how I learned, but I am game to learn something new if it will help.  
Please give your feedback!  You’re never too old to learn new things, right?
