Week 6 Take 2

I did this block again. I paper pieced it this time. I know. I know. I said that it was too hard to do. But I think I was preoccupied with other Saturday stuff and couldn't concentrate yesterday. Although I walked away in frustration last night, I kept thinking about this block and got up early this morning to try it again. (I never let a block get the better of me!) I was able to draw up the paper pieced pattern without any problem and I put the block together in less that an hour and a half! It's still not perfect, but it's a lot better!

I only wished I had used nicer fabrics. These are from my kid's scraps. I know that I said I would never make this block again, but now I have changed my mind. I am going to draw up another copy of this pattern for paper piecing and keep it in my files for future use. I really love this block! I really think that I will do it again!

isn't it interesting I think everyone found it a challenge, but by-in-large we all like it.... must be a bunch of sadist here :-)

OHHHHH, that is gorgeous! I am not giving up either.

There really is something in the design of this block that makes it visiually very appealing. Even with the kid's scraps the block looks great.

I have yet to try this block. Hopefully by Monday. Yours looks great! I like the little trains.

Great job. Way too much work for me though.
