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.

Forgot to mention...I'm looking for non paper-pieced blocks...just regular traditional pieced blocks.

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.
