I quite enjoyed making this block. It was more straightforward than JAS-10.
While it is not a hard block to make using foundation piecing, it has many tiny pieces, 37 exactly. Susan rates this block as being of medium difficulty.
My strategy was more or less the same as for previous blocks.
- 9 pieces 1 3/4 in square in the contrasting fabric
- 4 pieces 1 1/8 in square
- 12 pieces 1 3/4 in x 1 1/4 in
- 8 pieces 1 3/4 in x 1 1/4 in
- 2 pieces 3/4 in x 5 in
- 2 pieces 3/4 in x 4 1/2 in
And I just paper pieced them together as per pattern. And added the border pieces last without the paper.
Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt patterns
Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont. And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.
