Block #18 - Ann

The blog has been quiet for a while, but I've been working on this single block for the last two months, so had nothing to show until now. It wasn't until today when I was finishing this up that I checked the intro in the book to see if this was THE block, and it is: 229 pieces, the most of any of the blocks. It is paper pieced, and far from perfect. I was thankful that I had taken a paper-pieced miniature class a couple of years ago, as I needed all of those techniques on this one. Still needs to be trimmed and squared up, but I am so happy to be done with it!
