This one is just tedious because of the small pieces but it isn't difficult.

Love the colors in this one.  Tedios I can handle.  I find when the little one takes her nap I can sit and sew since I am doing all the blocks by hand.  I tried it after my first four blocks came out a little short and I am finding it is more relaxing for me.

Another beauty, Nana.  Your colors always inspire me.  I thought this one was challenging.  Lots of patience and SLOW sewing was necessary for me.  This is the last one I have  finished but the weekend is coming!

Mimi,

Another great block.  My tablet does not have a great color resolution so I have a hard time determining the colors in the pictures so forgive me if I am wrong, but are your colors red with green design fabric because I love the small triangle fabric.

I did use the HST ruler for the HSTs in this one.   I cut my strips at 1 1/2".  And the little squares come out 1 1/2".   This isn't a hard block.  It just takes some patience due to having so many small pieces.

Beautiful block Mimi.  My problems usually come from the flying geese.  They have never been one of my strong suits....LOL

Beautiful blocks, girls.  I love this one.  Mimi, yours looks SO crisp and perfect.  Way to set the bar high for the rest of us!  ;-)

Jeanette Kennedy Asiala:

Thanks for your kind words, Jeanette.  The fabrics are from Barbara Brackman's series Civil War Homefront for Moda.  The small triangles are made from the same fabric I used in block C - 3, Crosses and Losses.  It's a brown and tan with pink, blue and cream accents.

Thanks Nana.  Your geese look great.  You're too hard on yourself.
