    I thought I'd post this topic to see what everyone's most complicated quilt block was? I've got a picture of mine posted here...it may be small potatoes for some of you quilting gals, but this is quite the accomplishment for me. I'm proud of that...I was aiming for a 9'' block and it's 8 1/2''... oh well...

    Anyway, tell us what your most complicated one was!

    Nice. Now, measure your seams and see how far off each seam is from 1/4"- that will help you judge where you need to be for your next one. All 1/4" feet are not true to size, and we do not always stitch accurately (speaking strictly for myself).

    You did really well with Patience Corners. I had that one in my "like it" folder, and now I"ll put a note that it was a bugger for you.

    The worse one I've done is a Card Tricks http://mccallsquilting.com/qb/pattern_902/index.html

    I had my fabric all picked out, and made this sample blocks, and decided that one was enough for me!

    Yikes! That Card Trick has to be the worst one I have ever done also! I got so frustrated and upset doing just one block that I never did another one lol. I have that single block pinned up on my sewing room wall as a reminder not to do another one! :mrgreen:

    I'm not even finished the block yet, because I started something else at the same time, but this is what it's going to look like, only in REDS.
    Oh ya, and my camera is dead so I can't take pics of the real thing till I get my camera working again.

    Quilt4You: The braid is fantastic, but I agree it isn't easy to do. I just did one for the edging, and it was a bugger. I'll be posting photos soon, but It's on my list of "never do again" things. Your whole quilt is sure pretty!

    I think Card Tricks was the most frustrating block I've done. As for complicated, I'd say the Pineapple block, Mariner's Compass & Storm at Sea are tied. :wink:
