    Not only am I green with envy like QNS, I swear this did not turn out like I thought it would. It was going to be such a pretty block too with an Elsie almost the Borden Cow in the middle. UGHHHH. No I am not going to redo it--just chock it up to operator error and find a substitute that I can put Elsie in. Now onto Does and DartsName:  PC 30 Elsie's Favorite.jpg

    This is going to be my substitute. It's called Irish Chain from Judy Hopkins "Around the Block Again" book. I have re-drawn it in EQ and saved the templates and PP'ing pages. Rotary cutting instructions are as follows from EQ:

    Cut 2--2 7/8" squares cut on diagonal each from light, dark and dark II fabrics
    Cut 8--1 1/2" squares each from light and dark fabrics
    Cut 4--1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles each from light and dark fabrics
    Cut 1--3 5/16" square focus fabric--Elsie for me

    I have my block cut and sewn. Yeah. This was so easy to make without PP'ing. Another way to speed up the block construction is instead of
    "Cut 8--1 1/2" squares each from light and dark fabrics
    Cut 4--1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles each from light and dark fabrics"
    Cut a light strip and a dark strip at least 24 inches x 1 1/2" and sew long sides together. Press toward the dark side then subcut this sewn strip into 8--1 1/2" strips and 4--2 1/2" strips. You should have about 2" leftover to allow for ruler slippage etc.

    Oh and here's Elsie in a tidier setting surrounded by clover!

    Love the clover pattern and farm scene..especially Elise. Most people do not realize the 'gold mine' they have by living in the Mid-West section of the USA...fresh farm produce to put directly on the table. From milk to meat, from beans to squash, from eggs to fried chicken. Minerals in the soil are different from anywhere else and are reflected in the produce...and milk. I love it.

    Looks like a pattern for my KT Clover pattern fabric...interesting.

    I like your substitute and I'm sure Elsie is happier with it for a home. That first block needs better markings if it is to be half way decent to do. Curves are not usually that hard!
