Lot of travel stitching in this one, which means it's a good idea to plan out your path before you begin to minimize unnecessary stitching. The corners gave me some trouble, but all in all, this one wasn't too technically challenging.
Also, if you enjoy stitching triangles, you'll have a lot of fun with this block.
The straight lines are about as basic as you can get. Easy and nothing new, but the practice you'll get is just as important as learning new fillers.
I did have one blunder in this block. I had to hide a thread, so I used a cheater needle (AKA a self threading needle). Leah makes this process so easy--but this time, you'll watch me doing it. The first time was definitely the hardest. If you have the time and inclination, and some scrap fabric, a little practice hiding threads with this process will go a long way.
Here's the finished block:
And the back:
As you can see, no trace of the hidden thread.
I enjoyed quilting this block. I hope you will too.
Until next week, let's go quilt.
