Em's block #9

One more block done. Yea!! This one was quick an easy. A real plus. I don't think I should have used the stripe. One because I couldn't get them all going in the right direction. Two I didn't quite have enough so I had to piece it and I lost some of the bright pink stripe. But since we are just using scraps for this project. And these two were already cut into the right size strip. They were the ones that found there way into this cute little block. I agree with quilt pixie this would make a fun quilt. Might have to add it to the list.

I like your stripe fabric but it is a challenge when it comes to piecing blocks. I've tried stripes a couple of times only to rip them out and replace them with something else.

what a fantastic job of placement with those stripes! A real challenge, and you rose to it really really well :-)

OOOhhh! How brave you are to try stripes, Em. I don't think I'd have dared!

My first thought was - Hey, I have that stripe fabric. It is hard to use but I love stripes!

I usually stay away from stripes. They intimidate me. You pulled it off very well, especially with having to piece the fabric!
