Block 51 - Tazzie

Here is my block 51 - the Yahoo Group challenge block for this week.

I'm not entirely convinced that two of the fabrics I've used are reproductions, but they look nice, so they're staying.

Foundation piecing with freezer paper is my new love, and I'm getting much better at it. This block really only took me about an hour to put together, even with the interruptions that making dinner dictates :-)

I would like to get a few more blocks done before the end of the week, but that will be dictated by my quilting schedule. So, hope to 'see' you all soon!

Tazzie - Can you explain your Freezer paper foundation piecing method? Is it the normal trace the piece, iron it to fabric sew together?
