    Boy, that was a lot of work for one block! I must say that I LOVE this! I totally love the colors and the pattern, even if it is a little difficult. It took careful pressing and deciding which way each seam allowance should go. There is a lot of bulk with some of the blocks, like the center one.

    OK, maybe a little obsessive making sure the blocks are exactly the right size.

    What a beautiful block! You really did a fantastic job on it. Love the colors! I don't think it will be on my list of things to do... :shock:
    Now that you have the hang of it, the rest should be easy, right? :roll:

    I love your colors !! I made this quilt as a mystery class with Charlotte Angotti in Chicago a few years back.

    What a beautifull block! Great color choices on both. I think some people does a great job picking up the right fabric. You surely are one of those. Congrats. Shows us the full project when done!

    It sure does make a nice pattern when it's all together.

    Your seams look so perfect. Puts me to shame. I'd never dare post a closeup like that.

    Love the quilt. Those are some of my favorite colors.

    Wow I love it, your colors just really make the block. I just looked up the pattern and had to do a double take - yours is just so much more dramatic - I love it.

    My piecing really improved when I got my Viking Sapphire. The 1/4" setting is 1.8 and I move it one more tick over to 2.0 (scant 1/4).

    I do love these fabrics and colors, it makes me think of leather.
