I have two words for this block: Inset Seams! I have never done them before, I have never attempted them before….

Was this quilt a good place to start? I figured why not? This quilt is basically an open invitation to try techniques never done before. And so I did…I am not 100% pleased with it, but it is acceptable for a first attempt – now on to the next block! Oh, I did manage to complicate this one by fussy cutting everything – even the small appliqué diamonds.


This is block #169; it has 17 (very complicated) pieces!
