Block #20

I enjoyed this one but am cross about the middle fourpatch. I should have selected a randomly spotted fabric so that it didn't matter about the direction. Instead I chose one with lines of spots and then was not careful enough about the direction. The fourpatch is actually accurate but the 'leaning' of the spots makes it look wobbly. Oh well, another one that nobody will notice in the final quilt without a magnifying glass...

The block is just adorable Barbara. You've put it together so nicely, and the stripes on the outside set it off so nicely.
Can you believe that I'm really missing working on my own blocks?
