Block 18 - Tazzie

Can you imagine how thrilled I am to finally finish this block? It was tackled in spurts over four days. Honestly, it was too fiddly just to crank it out all at once - all 229 pieces.

You can see the little pins all around the place - I had to pin it to my ironing board once again to get it to stay flat enough to photograph.

I'm not sure which block I'll work on next, but which ever it is, it'll feel like a breeze after this one!

Bravo! Wonderful-wonderful job! At first, I thought your yellow pinhdeads were fussy cuts. You are the one who taught me to use freezer paper to get a block to hold still for photograhing. Now you're teaching me a new trick with the pins. Why didn't I think of that?

Just catching up after vacation, and love the multiple photos showing your progress. It's another beautiful block. Hope to get back to quilting this week - I have a block almost finished!

Thanks again and I love your fabric choices.
