This block took me a while. Notice the Rooster and hen in the centre block.
Cyndi I just had to have a play with those gorgeous Trade Winds fabrics. Added to my challenge getting all the colours in the right place :-)
Have a great Week all Cheers Lynne

I can finally say it is finished. Plan on putting it into the row later. I am happy The little kitties just fit.
Next blocks to complete are 47 35 and 17. The last two are complex and I just noticed I have not made 18 which is in the next row. That is a bit of a doozy. I am well on the way to finishing all the blocks though.

I'm making a Nearly Insane quilt using all Cherrywood fabrics for the blocks (the sashing will probably be a neutral batik). I'm paper piecing when possible, and going in numerical order according to Liz Lois's book. I've made 6 blocks so far, here are the first four:

Took 2 photos and the colours are still not quite right. The outer red is a stronger red than shows. I do like the way all the colours interact with each other. Not quite complimenting each other but happy all the same. I think that with this block the fabrics were harder to choose than doing the block itself. I will add it to the row. Choose the colours for the dreaded block 22 and give myself time on the Pie in the Sky quilt for a little while. B 22 is the last block I need to do to complete the row. Have a great Weekend all Cheers Lynne

Block is finished :-) I am happy One more block in this row before I am forced to tackle B22. The one I have been avoiding forever! One of my most favourite fabrics is the Sturbridge Apricot. Wish they made more repro apricots. I have less than a F8 left of this one and lets just say I will be very sad when it is gone.
Gorgeous Spring day here and it is going to be even better tomorrow. Happy Sewing All Cheers Lynne

I manged to finish another couple of Nearly Insane blocks and # 43 nearly did drive me insane. I think it took me the longest I have ever taken to make a block, mainly because I didn't follow the numbers on the pattern. I thought I knew better, and when I realised what a shambles I was in, it was too late to start over. Plus I was running out of the red fabric. It is not one of my best efforts, but I think I can fudge it in!
My second block was alot better, but its amazing how out of practise you can get when you haven't done any Foundation Piecing for a while. It took me quite awhile to get back into the swing of it.

I was shocked when I looked at my notes, that it had been 6 months since I last made a block for this quilt. My how the time flies!

The blog has been quiet for a while, but I've been working on this single block for the last two months, so had nothing to show until now. It wasn't until today when I was finishing this up that I checked the intro in the book to see if this was THE block, and it is: 229 pieces, the most of any of the blocks. It is paper pieced, and far from perfect. I was thankful that I had taken a paper-pieced miniature class a couple of years ago, as I needed all of those techniques on this one. Still needs to be trimmed and squared up, but I am so happy to be done with it!
