    has the most pieces? I'm looking for blocks with over 90 pieces.
    I know there's 'tree of life' that has 128 pieces or so. What else?
    I think I should change my nickname to NotSoEasy. :wink:

    If I'm counting correctly, this has over 200 pieces.

    And you must piece it by hand.

    You have one hour to complete the block.

    Start...

    NOW.

    I'll be back to check.

    :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    How about changing it to Masochist? :wink: :wink:

    I took a quick look through the EQ library and came across this block - Perspective Grid, with 121(?) pieces. Of course, like the Tree of Life you mentioned in the OP, you could make them HST's and double the count.

    Now, me? I would PP sections of it, but you can certainly draft 20+ templates if that's what rocks your boat. ;)

    I will continue searching for more torturous blocks. ;)

    Hmm. Now look who is being Masochist here. LOL
    How can I get out of this one? Please ignore my original post.
    I posted accidentally. I typed this while sleeping.
    I was being delusional. So there. ;-) ;) ;)

    Actually I found quite a few traditional blocks with lots and lots of pieces.
    I'll post them later for those interested in my torment. LOL

    Ok. I don't have EQ so I can't post the actual blocks.
    Edit: Found some on quilterscache.

    Aunt Rachel's Star - 152 pcs
    http://www.quilterscache.com/A/AuntR...StarBlock.html

    Birds in the Air - 164 pcs (this along could be a quilt on its own). LOL

    Indian Plumes - 93 pcs
    http://www.quilterscache.com/I/IndianPlumesBlock.html

    Minnesota - 97 pcs
    Windmill II - 96 pcs
    Twelve Crowns - 125 pcs.
    (very similar to mccalls but with more pcs I think)
    http://www.mccallsquilting.com/qb/pa...3_2/index.html

    All the above are from Judy Hopkins 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks.
    Anyone game? :twisted:

    Don't know if I will attempt all of them but I should make at least one
    then maybe I'll be cured for good. LOL
    I'm also on a sewing diet (my house is a construction zone again).
    As soon as I can get back to sewing and I finish my niece's quilt
    I'm going to make one of these blocks. Will post picture then.
