It took me a few days to complete this block! I made the center (diamonds), paper piecing it, and then thought I’d add the sides using inset seams. that did not look good at all! I took it all apart and started over…..I made a square out of four quarter square triangles in order to create the seams shown in the block. Then I added the center section using reverse appliqué. When that was completed I added the larger diamonds (needle turn appliqué).

This block more than any other (that I can recall 158 blocks in) embodies many techniques….

This is block # 158 incorporating 15 pieces.
