At first glance at this block I thought I would hand piece the whole thing but after taking a little closer look I decided that a combo of hand piecing and applique might work a little better for me.
I made my templates by tracing the block onto freezer paper (just love that stuff!!) but I did make a minor adjustment to the corners. I made my background corner pieces whole by ignoring the two larger corner triangles. I had decided that I would applique those larger corner triangles over the corners instead of trying to piece them into it.
|Just need to add the applique triangles!|
I love how this little block has turned out. As I make these blocks, and the midget blocks as well, I am learning so many new techniques and sometimes I am really successful and sometimes they just don't turn out very well because I am such a beginner with applique. When I have a success like this it drives me to continue learning and practicing!
