#15 - Barbara

This is another block I did last year, totally foundation pieced. Although foundation piecing is supposed to give you great accuracy, using it for the NI blocks has disappointed me. When I've finished posting the ones from last year, I'm going to try a different method for the next ones. By the way, Ranette (who has just finished a wonderful red and white NI) recommended that I look at this blog where there is a Nearly Insane album with photos of each block, all hand sewn, a lovely version of the quilt. Well worth a look. Thanks, Ranette!

Another lovely block Barbara. Thank you for the link to Ranette's NI pictures - they're just lovely! I think I could waste many hours working through all those pictures.
