Block 11 - Tazzie

Another very cute one - block 11. I made this one just before Easter, watching a cute movie with Miss Amy.

I really wanted to foundation piece it all, but puzzled over it for a little while. Then I realised that if I made up the four patch in the centre first, positioned it carefully, then I could foundation piece the balance of the block. Mind bending!

While you're reading this, according to my schedule, Linda and I are visiting with our wonderful friend Donna in Fulsom CA. I know we'll be having a blast together!

I did this one the same way but I didn't get my four-patch positioned as accurately as yours!

I've used the same process for several blocks also, and am getting better. I've taken an instructor's advice from a miniature class and used basting stitches to place those sections.
