Nice work Pat.
Here's another one that gave me fits. But it's done!
In The Piney Woods of Deep East Texas
Sue it gave me fits, too, seems I was always sewing everything together backwards..but here's mine completed.
Looks good Karla! Now on to easier blocks, LOL!
I love this block. Great stripe Sue.
Nice work Karla. I like your blue fabric.
Pat, Sue and Karla, all great looking blocks. Well done Ladies.
While I didn't find this difficult to piece the layout was tricky. I found myself frequently looking at the photo of the block. I like it. I think it will look good as an entire quilt. Lots of movement.
I used freezer paper templates and machine sewed this block.
Love the block Kris. I'll have to google FP templates.
Beautiful Kris. I can see what you mean about a tricky layout. Really have to keep brain in gear for this one.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Bonita, trace (or print) the templates onto freezer paper. Cut them out on the lines then iron to the wrong side of your fabric. Rotary cut your 1/4 inch seam allowances. Leave the paper on. Pin at the points/corners to line up your pieces and sew right next to the edge of the template. Remove the paper after all the stitching is done. If the FP lifts up just hit it with the hot iron. I find they stay quite nicely if you press your seams as you go.
The paper is super easy to remove since you don't sew through it.
Thanks Kris, that sounds easy enough.
