Nearly Insane Blocks # 8 & 14

Whew! Block # 8 was a mission, but I thought I may as well tackle it now, rather then leave it. I am piecing my blocks in the diagonal order, so the dreaded # 8 was next on the list. I have noticed its a bit wonky top right corner so I may have to tweak it!!

The next block # 14
Nearly Insane Blocks 8 001

Must get back to the kitchen and make some Apricot & Coconut Balls in time for Saturday. We have our Family Christmas Celebration a week before, so all the adult kids and the kiddies can go to their other respective parents/grandparents on Christmas day. The MIL ( me) doesn’t seem to get Christmas day, but thats O.K. as we go to the Italian side of the family for our traditional Christmas fare!

Bye for now

Congratulations on conquering #8. I'm not yet in the right frame of mind for some of the more intense blocks.

Great job there Sue, block 8 is a tough one, and you've made it up beautifully!

Just looking at the tiny pieces in #8 gives me a headache. And I didn't even piece it. Love the yellow fabric in the other block.
