This is the latest block for the quilt Dearest Boy, the wonderful quilt along quilt, that the below quilters are working on. Here is my latest block.
Challenges for this block include...well...everything, LOL! The pattern pieces in the pattern were not a perfect size to obtain the required block, at least for me, in my pattern...so after a couple of attempts, I drafted my own pattern and pieced it. It is far from perfect, and I may redo it...maybe not, though. I learned a lot making it...drafting this pattern was not so easy, as I got out my protractor and compass and cut out pieces and sewed them together the best I possibly could. I kind of like the block's wonky humility. Next time, I will make all the spikes the same color, instead of yellow and red, though. I had a vision, just for a tiny moment, of a whole quilt of these blocks...then I shook that off, LOL!!
I know Cathy and also Karen appliqued their blocks, instead of piecing, and the original block looks to be applique as well.
Please see the blogs below to admire their blocks!!!
